:: Firstly...how do you like the new look? I decided that I have been away for so long that I should make a real change, and what better theme to have now that I officially live BY THE SEA!!
:: So YEP we moved! A month ago we actually fulfilled a dream of living by the Sea (a lot more on that in the next post)
:: SERIOUS BIT - I do miss being so close to my sister and my friends, and I know they feel it too - but now that we are here I can honestly say I think we have done the right thing, even only after a month! Living here is quite the loveliest thing.
:: We lost a much loved member of our small family - Gimli. She didn't make the move with us as got sick just a few weeks prior to the move. Very sad
:: We gained an ickle cheeky new member to our small family - Bella (more on her in another post)

......Insert WAILING here.......
I know that anything could happen, and I know it obviously wasn't meant to be, and I know there will be another better house out there for us...but for now, just right now I am so upset.
The upside? Last night was the first night for a few nights that I have woken myself up at about 4.15am only to start thinking about where all our furniture will go...last night I slept soundly.
On this end - we had had two more viewings and have another tomorrow...fingers crossed!? Then will have to start the search again.

Our agent called in the week and has arranged another three viewings (the first of which was earlier today), so this kicked me into touch to get the bathroom decorated and looking presentable again.
This is what it looked like before (notice the offending corner above left of Bilbo's tail)Honestly, all that was holding up that corner was the wallpaper and paint...
So, after deciding to go a little more NEUTRAL (how many house selling programs have I watched recently)...here is the result:We matched the paper luckily, but the bright blue took FOUR coats of paint to cover...however it looks presentable now and the wall is no longer bulging!!
So - here is to another week of nail biting. One tomorrow and another on Weds booked in...
