Fell behind the last couple of days. Was finishing off my immigration documentation so had to focus all my efforts on that. Will still probably get sent back to me though. Ha, that's bureaucracy for you!
Hope you've all had a good weekend and things are ticking over nicely for you. It's been a while since I wrote anything on here that wasn't a poem and since it's the start of March now, I thought I'd kick off the month with a bit of a blab.
Here are the things that are going on with me. I moved to Canada from my native England on the 20th January 2011. I am still not quite settled in. This is no bad thing. The reason I can't get my head around the move is because everything is so different here. Everything is cleaner, the people are nicer, the air is much colder and there has been persistent snow on the ground since I arrived. If you know me, you know I am a fan of the cold so this is no kind of problem.
Despite this system shock, I am being quite productive now. I've taken up watercolour painting, I've been writing my epic poem (the watercolours will go with it if I get good enough at doing them), planning out the novel I'm writing, attending a poetry and writing group, spending time with my long suffering girlfriend Tara and generally making a nuisance of myself. It's nice to have so much time to be creative but I would quite like to get back in to work, even if it is only a part time job. I can't do anything like that right now because I have to wait on the documentation that will give me the right to earn a living here.
That's actually about all that is going on. I miss my friends and family in England but I know for sure that I've done the right thing in moving. I'd recommend anyone who is in England get out of that god and man forsaken place. If you already left or have never been there, well done!
