About Us

Hello – and a huge ‘thank you’ for visiting my site 🙂

I thought it would be interesting to capture thoughts, ideas and the physical reality of relocating to a different country with an element of humour, general observation and the basic practicalities of moving with 3 young kids – hence the title, ‘goat and kids’.

Up until October 14, we lived in northern England, and have now relocated and living in Canada – namely, Edmonton – for a few years.  The plan is to return to Blighty when our time is up.

We’ve moved from Manchester, England ….

Manchester Cathedral, with the Manchester Cath...

To Edmonton, in Alberta, Western Canada ….


I’m hoping this blog creates a memory bank for us all to look back on, aswell as providing a way for friends and family to keep in touch. Plus, we get to connect with lots of new people – just like you (welcome!) – all across the world.

It’s an experiment – and welcome to our journey.

  2. I love your posts and I am awarding you the Lovely Blogger award. It’s an easy one and I hope you’ll take time to complete it. I know life is chaotic (especially right now), but I’d really be interested in learning 7 new facts about you and I think the rest of the blogosphere would too! Info is on my Awards Page along with the award for you to copy and put on your own site.


    • Wow! I am absolutely chuffed you thought of me – you’ve made my day! Thankyou!!! I will definitely seek it out on your page & complete!!!! Thankyou so much once again!!!! 🙂


      • Good. I really do enjoy your blog and I can’t wait for 7 new things about you! Take your time on it. I know it’s crazy for you right now. It’ll all wait till you’re ready.


      • Will do! Thankyou for such kind words – it’s lovely to know what we write on a laptop or tablet can be enjoyed many thousands of miles away across the globe! Hopefully at some point over the weekend I’ll craft something together …. there’s another blog due out too so will endeavour to do both! Happy smiles!! 🙂


  3. Hello. Guess you caught me on here enjoying your blog this morning (my time). Thanks for popping over to my blog and the follow. Am very excited to hear more about your relocation! Am sure your 10-year-old will be much consoled with the thought of “being the star” when she gets back to her friends in England. Love your blog so far (especially the name!) and I look forward to more posts as events unfold!

    • Hi! Thanks so much for the feedback and great to know you’re enjoying my musings so far – it’s a venture into the unknown on every level for me! I’m hoping the ‘kids’ part of my blog name will play a role in posting blogs about their exploits in the near future too!! 🙂
