I dragged my husband and my cat across the Pacific ocean to a frozen wilderness… and now I’m writing about it.

Partly because I want to document this huge undertaking – a new postdoc, a new country, a life far away from the people and city I know and loveĀ  – and partly just so I can keep my mum up to date with my daily goings-on. Also, I like the sound of my own written voice (did you know that about me? be prepared to find out).

Expect to read about the big and bold, the bland and boring; find out about the difficulties, the thrills, the great achievements and the terrific failures. No censorship or punch-pulling – watch out for terrible puns and occasional swear words. Requests accepted.

Welcome to Saskatoon, SK.
