Edmonton was my home for a number of years, until I realised winters were a little different in BC!
Angela and the Team
Bienvenue ! From Québec
Edmonton . Lived there for many moons, family in Calgary & hoping to get back but not soon enough .
Should we ever be in the area, would gladly dogggie sit for you!
Enjoy the TH community as there are heaps of good folk out there to cross paths with.
hello and welcome. Enjoy the craic.
What’s the meaning of “craic”. Don’t find on Google translation…
Craic is a Scottish and Irish word for good conversation.This is the best way I can describe it. It is usually used when the conversations are person to person or a group of people .
hope that helps.
Provence if you were to be in a room
With Scots and UlsterScots .
You won’t be able to understand half of the language we use.
My hubby English is still trying to make it out.
The Glasgow accent very hard for me to understand.
I wish that I learnt French and Spanish when I was younger.
The worst for me is not the scottish accent, it’s the Liverpool one. I really loved very much a home owner in Costwolds (we are still in contact nearly 2 years after my first sit near Cirencester), I can only understand her when she writes to me, when she speaks I don’t understand a word and it’s complicate to make her repeat and repeat (with no result)
Yes Liverpool accent is very strong.
Also very fast.
Hello! I’m Ani from USA! I love Trustedhousesitters, and I’m a longtime user! I just learned about the community forum!
Enjoy the chat
Thank you everyone for the welcome! We have had sitters from New Zealand, and Canada stay in our home so far. Looking forward to travel happening again! Hopefully this year. We would like to try our hand at doing sits as well!
I lived in Richmond for a few years working at YVR airport! I do enjoy the winters there much better. Thank you for all the information you have provided. I will enjoy being a member of the chat community.
You are very welcome @Johnnymutha Just one thought, you returned to Edmonton, althou I have been told the winters are getting milder, Home is home after all. Enjoy being on the Forum.
Yes…I have noticed a bit of a gradual change in the winters. I retuned for work opportunity, but also have grown up here so I have had my fill. I want to pick and choose when to see snow in my golden years
