Update, Canada living

Well I thought it’s well about time I gave an update on my life and not just about where I eat!

I’ve settled into Vancouver, living right on Stanley Park on the 18th floor. I have ridiculous views of the park and out across second beach and English Bay. I have the cutest little Chinese flat mate, Amanda. She cracks me up everyday with her funny words (still learning English) and the funny things she does. Like coming out looking like a monster a few times a week when she wears this crazy paper face mask! Lose my shit every time!

Last week I got a job! Whoooop yay me! I was actually starting to make contingency plans for if I didn’t get a role. I was potentially ooking at leaving for NZ but all at once I had a huge amount of calls for interviews and I found a job I really wanted. Next day it was mine! So I’m now the Account Co-ordinator – Social Media at Mediatonic PR. It’s a lifestyle and boutique agency, different to anything I’ve done before but I hope to learn a lot, especially in PR. They’re a lot heavier on the strategy side than I’m used to and I hate tracking every minute of my day but I love that I get to go to Kelowna for the Centre of Gravity Festival next week and all to the other great events I get to be involved in.

I have some great friends and I actually had to buy a diary to keep up with my social engagements! I hate being bored so I’m constantly on the go meeting people for dinner, lunch, walks, drinks, shopping etc. Hilariously they’re almost all Aussies – I can’t get away from the buggers!

Anyway gotta run, off to another dinner date.

5 days to go

What a weekend.

Went out for dinner Friday.. Next thing you know it’s 1am and we’ve had a few Tikki cocktails! Benny came back home to annoy David and they played until Ben fell asleep outside my door on the floor – yep there was the sofa or the mattress but he chose the floor. Boys are weird.

Sat I spent packing and being domesticated cleaning and making pies. Plus a haircut. My good friend and hairdresser Kylie cried when I left. Hate making people cry.

I was going to head to the Lions game but ended up staying home as it was raining as I needed a nap. Next thing I know Lisa had arrived, then Tay & Shan. Got home at 4.30am.

Did I mention I had to move Sunday? Yeah so after 4 hours sleep I was up again getting ready. Everyone arrived at 12 and it was time to get cracking! Huge thanks to Pete for pretty much doing it all for me.4pm it was all done and we were back at Kim’s. she was already down a bottle of red wine so we joined her.Sophie and Kim had arranged an awesome dinner party. Roast for the main but my fave was the entree – roasted garlic with caramelised onions on toasted olive sourdough. Nom. With 6 boys visiting there were lots of bodies to feed!I snuck off to bed at 9.30 but people kept coming in to wake me up, come 12.30am I was still awake and the girls retired to bed.Have to cull more clothes this week, I thought I had it all done but I have SO much stuff. Ggrrr

5 days to go…
