Curling Champions!

semi-overcast -3 °C

Well not really, my team lost overall... haha, but it was heaps of fun!! So much harder than it looks but really funny to play. The rocks are way heavier than I thought and the ice is so slippery because you have one shoe with a slider on it so when you are sweeping it's so hard to keep up with the rock but also keep balance. Nick and I had a great time though and managed to get a few fluke shots in the house (the target) and Nigel had never done it before either so we all felt a little bit more Canadian after that experience, haha. Was a great chance to meet lots more of their friends as well and then we all came back home and had supper together and chatted. Our accent got ripped on a lot!! But it was funny because we didn't realise how many words we say really differently.. tomato, aluminium, uni were a few. And there are so many words that we have no idea what they're talking about!! Very cool to learn heaps of Canadian terms though to bring back and spread round home, hehe.

Before we went curling, Nigel and Allison took us for a tour of Saskatoon and on the way we went through the drive through of A & W and got some poutine, it was sooo good! Will definitely be attempting to make that when I get home :) And tonight we are going to this place called Fudd Ruckers which is apparently awesome because it has humongous burgers and you make it yourself or something but will let you all know how that goes tomorrow!

Nick spent the afternoon out at Allison's families farm going shooting with the boys and I spent it with Allison and Sarah and the babies shopping in one of the malls in Saskatoon. Both of us had successful afternoons because I bought a few things and got to carry around the babies which is always so cute and Nick managed to shoot stuff without blowing off his shoulder!! haha. Feeling very at home in Saskatoon and having so much fun getting to know everyone here :) Also loving relaxing and staying in the one place longer than a few days!

Canada is seriously very cool, I know I've said that a few times but I'm really loving everywhere we've been so the thought of moving over here for a little while is getting more and more tempting!!

Love Claire

No Claire. Don't be tempted to move to Canada even for a while. We want you here and Australia is "seriously cool" also.

Haha, thanks Aunty Pop :) Australia is definitely seriously cool as well :) But I'm thinking one summer over here would be pretty good!
