Dear All,

2007 has been quite an eventful year for us. We’re still awaiting an interview date for G’s immigrant visa, and so, I’ve been visiting him in Ontario every other weekend for the past 7 months.

We’re making the best of the situation. We bought a folding kayak with sailing rig and have given our friends at the yacht club quite a few giggles – seeing us bob about Lake Ontario. G took Patience on a canoe expedition up the Rideau Canal and had a great time discovering a bit of Canada.

Before landing in Canada, we saw each other in Ireland and Switzerland. All in all, we’re very fortunate, despite the situation, and hope he’s able to return home very, very soon. This is all quite the inconvenience.

In the meantime, we wish you and yours the very best for the holidays!

All good things,

G & S
