We never used to have them, but so many Aussie's and Kiwi's have moved here(so many in Alberta and BC) that I think they somehow got them started over here.. (never had them growing up)

No, they're new for sure. Ex-pats everywhere, why they'd come here I'll never know *smh* there's even a couple of "British supplies" shops here that import things from the UK.

I think just about every shop in Whistler has a Kiwi or Aussie working there lol paying for their skiing...

lol I always joke that they are taking over!! There was even a van in a neighbouring town that had "Kiwi's on tour" spray painted on it and people walking would cheer for them as they drove through town. Canada loves you guys!

Aww ^ Smile

Having my forehead stroked gently. This simple gesture either puts me straight to sleep or gets repressed tears out.

Also, "squiggles" (light fingernails along the back that I call squiggles... so relaxing!)

Or just having my hair played with..

~sigh~ All 3 would be so nice right now.. (I'm craving comfort)

Apple pie is scrumptious, my favourite pie.

I call that back drawing, just fingertips though... it's delicious.

Apple pie is delicious indeed!
Now, 'squiggles' or 'back drawing' do not relax me.... they either irritate me or ~cough~ evoke other emotions.
Wink


One of my favourite things is hearing 'mamma I'm home', especially when the boys have gone out to the cinema or a birthday party in the evening...... nothing beats that feeling of my babies being back home safe and sound. ♥♥

Snap, I love having my head stroked, it is a wonderful feeling. It is also something I do to other people without even thinking about it, I always stroke the residents heads at work after they've got into bed or if I go and see them in the night, or especially if they are upset.

I love to spend a bit of time with them, some of the carers are in such a hurry to do everything and they don't give them that little bit of time and care. It annoys me really, yes we are busy, but you can always spare that little bit of time.

I agree, and I am sure you make such a difference in their lives. I bet they look forward to seeing you. Smile
