Incredible to believe but it's 13 years this month since I came over to Salt Lake City and started working, while Elaine was back in England looking after the kids (ages 11, 7 and 7), packing up the house in Burbage and otherwise doing all the hard work of getting the family unit relocated to Utah. We described it back then as our American adventure - we didn't know if it would last, and told ourselves we would give it two years. As ever life has thrown us a few curved balls and time has gone by in a blink of an eyelid, but looking back we're glad we took that first big step and have enjoyed living in the States. Every month we have been here I tried to keep this website as a diary of our lives - which soon became too much work -- and in these days of Facebook its more of a photo gallery now - but I have maintained it and it's fun to see how far we have come and the adventures we have had in our time here. Click on some of the other months and you can look back too.
