I'm Not Australian

ELLO!!!

Jess here, I heard that many people think I am Australian! Unfortunately (accent wise) I am not.


I moved to Saskatchewan 3 years ago, from Brauncewell, England. Brauncwell is a teenie village of 10 houses, There was nothing to do there, no shop, school, post office, nothing. In my spare time I would take my horse, Storm galloping across a RAF (royal air force) field and the park. (highly not recommend) we were chased off several times.

ridingStorm, he was terrified of turkeys and umbrellas. What a guy.

 

Brauncewell is located in the county of Lincolnshire, it's pretty much the Saskatchewan of England, farming wise. Flat fields, tractors everywhere and the aroma of cow poop from time to time. My parents and I moved here to a sheep farm. We have about 500 sheep, 1 cow, 9 horses, 9 dogs, 10 cats and a guinea pig known as Mr Pig. We like to call it our funny farm.

My first year here was an interesting learning experience;

 

  • We had no furniture for the first 6 weeks due to shipping issues, this  happened during lambing time and in -45 conditions.
  • We had no idea where the edge of driveway was. The truck was ditched several times, which created an outline of the driveway. So I guess it ended well.
  • Juice is in the freezer section of the store, in a can. That's just weird.
  • Way to many perogies were consumed in a week.
  • You can wear what you want to school, causing extra useless stress.
  • Hockey, men with sticks beating each other up. I love it.
  • Driving on the opposite side of the road. Had to tell mum many times "there's a semi coming towards us" we're OK driving now.....

And of course there was getting used to the accent. Slang words, different names for different things. Getting over the shock of some one saying "I didn't wear pants today" meaning they wore shorts instead and did in fact wear underwear.

Three years have past and I wouldn't move for all the money in the world. I do miss things such as fish "n" chips, pickled onion flavoured chips and the smell of rain. Although right now maybe not so much.

Canadians are great people and Saskatchewan is my home, I yell at the T.V during hockey games, love poutine and I can fluently translate Canadian words to my parents!

My few weeks at Bolt have been awesome. Everyone is super nice, especially when they all talk in my accent.... ha ha ha.

 

Well thanks for reading, cheerio!

Healthy eating and new shoes

With summer here, Andy Cohen has decided to get up the ante on his healthy eating. Here is a picture of one of his lunches.

DonutSalad

I donut know what he was thinking.

Meanwhile, I wouldn't normally decide to post a picture of my shoes, but I felt like you guys kneaded to see these.

Loafers

I wonder how long after I wear these that they will be toast.


Happy Tuesday!
