NorthWest Company

Hi Rob, Tina and the boys. we are not sure if we are supposed to put an answer to your question on our blog or yours as we are very newbies at the blogging, so we decided to put it on here and then hopefully you will read it.
Andy is going to be a Manager in Training for about a year and Sue is going to work in the store and learn a department Manager position.
It is so good to have found someone else who is working for the same company,we will probably have many questions for you and hopefully you will be able to answer them for us.
we have our email address on our blog so maybe if i have trouble with this blog thingy you could also advise.
we was so surprised when we got a comment on our blog , it was quiet a thrill for us.
we are looking forward to moving up north as soon as possible, but as you know selling a house and pretty much all you have is very hard work and we hope to have the house sold in a few more weeks.
Anyway we better stop talking your ear off (or i guess eyes in this case)
Hope to hear from you guys soon.
Andy and Sue

This is molly our dog. we hope that she will not get lost in the snow in Arviat when we move.

Getting ready for a move

Hello everyone, well today is Sunday August 10 2008 and this is our first blog.
we are not sure at all if we are doing it right but i am sure we will get better as we go along.
As the heading suggests, we are getting ready to move from wheatley Ontario to Arviat Nunavut. we have put our house on the market and HOPE that we have a quick sale.
We are going up north to work for the North West company, and are looking forward to a very different lifestyle. we have been reading up on life in the north and have found many websites and blog sites and we are pretty sure we know what we are in for in the winter,but we will be able to verify these thoughts when we get there.
If anyone reads this blog and lives in Arviat, we would love to hear from you, and of course anyone else who wants to say hi to us.

Hope to have some more news next time.
Andy & Sue.
