Whereabouts in Canada are you from Amanda1? There are a few other Canadians (or mums based in Canada) on here - Hana, and Highlander I think?

Hey Amanda!
I'm also Canadian, have been here 8 years.....also thought I wouldn't be here that long. We're in London, dh is English, we have a 3 year old dd and are expecting our 2nd at Christmas. I grew up in Halifax.
Have never been to Leeds, I never seem to meet any Canadians anywhere over here! Mumsnet is fab, discovered it well after dd was born and it's been a great source of comfort and support.
Happy Thanksgiving for next week. I am going to try and make pumpkin pie this time ( but have been saying that for 8 years now!!)

HI Amanda1! I live in Kirkstall which is about 10 mins from leeds centre. Are you working in Leeds?

Amanda, we're in West London. When I first moved to London I was in Notting Hill and have moved steadily west ever since! I am usually home once or twice a year - went last Feb for a couple of weeks and we were planning to go for Christmas this year, but I'm actually due on the parents are coming over instead! DD has made that flight about 6 times now, her airmiles with Air Canada are adding up.....!

Hi Amanda1,
No I don't work. FT mum. My DP works away during the week and my dd has just turned 6months. Are you working FT? If your free sometime we could meet up? We're thinking of emigrating in 2 yrs and have been told Canada is beautiful so will hopefully be going for a visit next year.

Hello! Wish that I had bumped into you earlier... We have recently moved back to Canada after 4 years in London. I am currently in Victoria but off to Ottawa in January. MN saved my sanity and saw me through a disastrous (like there is any other kind?!) miscarriage in June.
