A Year Ago

Here are some, completely irrelevant to this post, New York pics.  One of the (only) benefits of having two year old in tow while visiting the city, is that it is perfectly acceptable to go on a horse-drawn carriage ride round Central Park.









It seems deeply inappropriate to be writing this from a desk in New York City,  but today we are celebrating our one year anniversary of being in Seattle.

I remember those first few days so well.  

The Minx (and consequently the whole family) was deeply jetlagged.  The only toys we had were those we had brought in our suitcase and the Minx (and consequently the whole family) soon became very bored. And the rain was running in torrents outside, during what was to become the wettest November period in Seattle’s history.

I really was *this* close to taking the next flight home.

But I’m so glad we hung around. We’ve got to know an unbelievably beautiful part of the world and met some of the very nicest and friendliest people ever.  I love our house – despite the green and orange and purple and red paint – with a passion and can’t wait to see the seasons roll round again in this landscape.  The Minx is having an absolute ball. 

Thank you Seattle for making us feel so very much at home it’s scary.

I meant to post this up yesterday, but computer problems intervened.

    I’m glad you’re enjoying living in Seattle. I found your blog a few months ago and have found your adjustment to Seattle very interesting to read. I’m from Seattle, but have been living in London since May – so am going through the opposite transition. I’m glad you like my city!
