Au revoir Toronto

What better way to say au revoir Toronto than with three big XXXs in the sky above Roncies? Toronto, and Canada, have been good to me, and to us: I will miss our friends, and the weather, and the frolicking by the seaside and on the high mountains – wait, oops, that would be Cape Town, I guess!

Anyway folks, I fly out this evening, for sunny South Africa, and on Thursday night will greet my daughters and my sons in law and my new grandson in Johannesburg. Rob will follow at the end of February.

But, we will be back, and we will keep in touch, as we hope you will. This blog will be one way of keeping you posted, so Carry on Reading!

Au revoir, arrivederci XXX

  6. […] We snipped another month off our wall calendar on Saturday, the first day of May, leaving just four months to go before we pack up and leave our house in Johannesburg and begin the long journey home, to Toronto. […]


  7. […] as box by box we pack up our Parkmore townhouse, and wonder where everything will go, in our little Toronto abode, keeping an eye out meanwhile on the latest travel advisories and the Covid numbers, both […]


  8. […] stuff we want to keep is on its way, first by road to the coast, then onto a ship, via Rotterdam to Toronto. The stuff we don’t want to keep, or really don’t need, is in the process of being farmed out […]
