We are busy making all our preparations to leave, which are very detailed and precise in the contract-we are having a 'move out ' clean all day Thursday with the amazing Regal Cleaning Company based in Aspen Landing...the international packers came today and were brilliant at cramming everything in but we hit our weight allowance very quickly...left with a lot of stuff!
We are very lucky in that Bruce has found , after much searching, a lovely two bedroom apartment Downtown, in an area called Eau Claire, next to the park, and Bow, or is it Elbow (?) River. It has its own gym and tennis court attached to the apartments. We are coming back out to Calgary for two weeks at half term in October and three weeks at Christmas. We had the option to stay until Christmas but decided it was better to start the school year in one place in September rather than January again.(but we do love Calgary so it was a very difficult choice!)

Popped in to our local Good Earth coffee shop in Aspen Landing for a coffee and found the coffee shop had become a movie set-no joke! They used three of the ladies having coffee as part of the scene..!!
hard to see from the photo but this storm was really scary-hail truly was the size of golf balls, I really did think the windscreen was about to cave in! I followed the lead of other hardy Canadians and 'sheltered' under the nearest bridge on the Highway until it eased!

.......and what a fantastic night it was too! We had brilliant seats at the concert, only 20 or so rows back from the front, had dinner with friends beforehand at Catch. The concert was great, Elton sang for two and a half hours, now trying to get tickets for U2 on June 1st in Edmonton :-)
