November has been a busy month! I keep trying to find time to write a post but I'm either tired or stressed or don't really have a clean update to post. Mostly because we are moving to Canada on the 1st December! It's finally happening! The last month or so has been a haze of quitting jobs, sorting visas, leaving parties, seeing people, etc. I feel pretty tired (although that might just be a small hangover from last night).
I don't think it helps that it doesn't really feel like I've had a routine recently, and I don't think that will change for a while. And with only a week and a half left, it feels like it's going to be stressful getting everything ready. Really though, the only big things left are
- PCR tests for flying
- Deciding what to ship/send and sending it
There are a few other small things (booking a taxi from Vancouver to our new flat, uploading details into ArriveCAN, and I'm sure other things I've forgotten), but given we're off work I don't think it will be too bad.
The other big thing, of course, has been seeing people before we go. Most people came to our leaving do, but there's still a few people to catch before we leave.
Moving halfway across the world takes a lot of effort, who'd have thought?!
I went to visit my parents last week as well, which was very enjoyable. It was a bit sad they were working, but it was nice to spend time with them nonetheless. It is quite sad to be moving away from friends and family. I knew I was going to miss people but I think it's going to be a bit worse than I thought...
In other less exciting news, we finally saw the new Bond (enjoyable) and I've been enjoying Bloc Party's Silent Alarm. I'd like to write more about both, but I'm just not feeling particularly up to it at the moment. Hopefully I'll be able to write about exciting Canada things soon though!
