Trevor and I had dreamed about moving to Canada for as long as we can remember.  Life goes on and you get busy living and your dreams get pushed to the back of your mind. Someone once said to me, life is something that happens to you whilst you are busy making plans for the future.  We had travelled through the Okanagan Valley, 18 years ago, with my parents, and we were in awe of the beautiful scenery, things to do, and clean Canadian living. In 2003 I lost my father to Cancer. Dad always said to us, “life is what you make it, so make it what you like!”  He was such fun. You can read about the fun we had in our life in England on the sub page connected to this one. If there was one thing I learnt from my experience, it was to act now, as we do not know what our future holds.

Back to our move, we visited friends here in the Okanagan for a couple of days, passing through. We were looking at some show homes, just passing the time really, and in that time we saw the vision offered to us.  A wonderful home here in Quail Ridge.  Our home we chose hadn’t been built yet but we could see into the future, five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a cloak cuboard, guest toilet, pool, theatre room, bar and the whole of Canada as our back yard!!!  In those two days, we bought a house! I said to Trevor we either do it, or never dream about it again.  We did it!  We went for it.  At worst … this was an investment, at best… a home.

It wasn’t an easy task, I won’t lie to you.  It took us three years after that to get our paperwork through the immigration process. Then it all happened quickly.  We completed in the sale of our house two days before we flew out!  Point is, anything is possible if you have the determination to do it.  This is not for everyone, but if you think it’s for you, give me a call.  I will be happy to talk to you.  A friendly ear on the end of the phone.
