About me


I’m Lisa and well, I’m a Canadian in the UK.

                Spring in Manitoba April 2008

Originally from Thunder Bay, Ontario, I spent my last 17 years in Canada living in Manitoba.  And then in 2010 my two daughters moved to Plymouth, England.

I should mention we hadn’t actually been to England before moving here and we didn’t know anyone here.  Crazy, eh?  Thinking back I thiI think so too, moving to England was actually our first time in England that we didn’t know anyone here.   Looking back, I have no idea how we did that, we were either crazy or brave or a bit of both.

Fast Anyway, fast forward 7 years and we are all still here, all happy and living normal, happy lives.  We even all live in nice houses. We are now British Citizens.

I remember when we first arrived, I never felt more out of place in all my life, though most people spoke to me in English, I couldn’t understand most of what they said to me – I just couldn’t get my head around the accents.  And what they called things and how they pronounced stuff.

Hence my reasonings for putting this together.  I remember trying to google this and goole that and visitng forums etc looking for info etc.  So it’s all here, all the tings I can remember having to sort out when we moved here.

If there is anything specific that I haven’t covered feel free to drop me a line and I’ll help in whatever way I can and remember…..
