A House, a Job and a Sweet Ride

my new sweet ride. 
So it has been 3 weeks now since we have moved into our new house and it has certainly been a busy three weeks!
I had to give up most of my students and now I have to start my tutoring business anew, which is a little bit frustrating as I cannot advertise through the hospital as easily. I have been busy creating a website and making flyers and researching places to advertise. It's a little slow-going so far.

I have been asked a couple of times now why on earth I would move to Brantford as if it;s the most awful place to ever live. And Sure MacLeans tries to ruin cities like Brantford every so often by producing scary and skewed stats about cities but I think many people dislike their hometown just for the sake of disliking it. But, Brantford seems very nice so far. The people that I have met so far are almost overwhelmingly friendly that it almost scares me. My job is only a ten minute bike ride away on my sweet new ride...see pic above. and we have the fantastic Grand River 5 minutes away and the lovely town of Paris  only a ten minute drive. 

 I was able to to take a week and a half off work between my transfer from the flamborough Value village to the Brantford location, which has been a big help. I had an entire week to move things in, organize ( not quite finished) and paint ( also not finished...but over time)
I have finished painting the kitchen which in my opinion when moving into a new ( but slightly older home) is one of the first room that needs to be changed/updated to match your style since it is a room that is used quite often.

here are some before and after of the kitchen:
