I'm Back!

Wow, it's been so long since I posted and a lot has happened.
It has been a traumatic year and I sincerely hope 2010 will be a lot better!
We did sell our house. For a lot less than what we wanted but we were desperate to get out of the ghetto we were living in. It took three months for the settlement to go through!
We moved into a gorgeous house by the beach. It has four bedrooms, two bathrooms and three living areas! Lots of rooms to decorate!
Most of the house had been freshly painted and we kept the majority of it in the same sandy colour (very beachy.)
They had done some feature walls in very dark colours. Deep burgundys and purples.
It made the house look very dark so we repainted all of them a very pale blue.
I haven't taken any photos of the house. I want to do that when it is "resolved".
I have nearly completed one room and hope to show it on here soon.

Below is our new family member. His name is Ted and he is a labradoodle. This picture was taken when we fist got him. He is about 18 weeks old now and has doubled in size! He is gonna be HUGE!
I also have some sad news. Tom ran away about a week after we first moved in. He was a very territorial cat and didn't like being moved from his kingdom. I have him listed with Cat Haven so there is still some hope that he might turn up.

I will try my hardest to post again soon! xxx


  1. Peta,

    It's so good to see you back. I'm so happy you have a new home to live in by the shore.

    So sorry to hear about your pet running away. I bet he'll find his way back to you.

    Can't wait to see photos of the new "LOOK".

    Hey Peta,
    Good to see you back woman!
    I agree 2009 was not a fab year, but this year is already shaping up to be a good one. Cheers to that anyway!
    Your new home sounds lovely, I bet your big reveal will be awsome.

  5. Dear Peta,

    I´m happy to read you again. Congratulations for selling your old house and much more congratulations for your new house - the living room is absolutely beautiful, so bright and friendly and I love the soft colours your have used. My old house isn´t sold til now, it is in an beautiful environment but it is small.

    Sorry for your lost Tom - I can feel with you and hope he finds his way back to you. And your doggie is cute - he would be a playful companion for my two little terrorists.

    I hope we can see pics of your new home soon and I´m sure it will be so pretty.

    I´m really happy that I can read you!

    Hugs and kisses from germany,
