I was born in England (actually in a place called Hockley, Essex funnily enough) and thought I could make it on my own so I travelled to Montreal at the ripe old age of 14 months. I needed someone to push me in a stroller so I decided to bring my mom and dad with me. The arrangement seemed to work out fine for all of us. I've enjoyed time in Ottawa, Waterloo, Barrie and the Toronto area over the years. I've lived in Essex County since 1997. I remember this because when I moved here I was pregnant with my second child. My PARENTS remember this because just as they were about to move into their new home to be closer to us,
we moved away....while I was pregnant with my second child. Didn't go over well. I've tried to get them to move down here but they keep saying I will just move away on them again. I cannot say for certain that that WON'T happen so they are best staying where they are. They are great people - my mom's a yoga instructor and my dad is not. My son is currently away at University (studying REALLY hard, right Nick?) and my daughter, who is a crackerjack photographer, attends highschool in Leamington. Both have a wicked sense of humour which is an absolute necessity around our household.
