Exactly a month after arriving in Northern Ireland, we were on a plane again headed back to snowy Alberta.

All I can say is that it is a "dry cold"... minus 40oC only sounds bad. One has to experience it for themselves to really understand a Canadian winter - hint, hint!

Once we arrived back, Andrea started on some contract work in Calgary for a Communications and Marketing Agency. On her first day there, she ended up working a 15 hour day and meeting Alberta's Premier, Ralph Klein at the end of it all. Quite a first day eh? Unfortunately, the contract hasn't yet gone any further as we are waiting for the client to get back to us. He is out of the country a lot and seems to have taken December off. Time will tell.

Brian is keen to start his re-training in Sports Therapy Massage in the spring (March 07). We actually met on a massage course in Northern Ireland back in 1998 and he has always wondered about going further with it and maybe someday starting up his own practice. Any guinea pigs out there needing a rub? Sorry, "no happy endings" as they call it in Asia.;-)

We are still waiting to decide where we will set up our home...Edmonton, Calgary or perhaps even Paradise Valley - who knows. It's kind of the catch 22 situation - waiting to hear about jobs before we set down roots anywhere. But we will remain positive and patient and see what 2007 brings.
