New Year, New House Again

I'm sorry I've been so quiet lately. December is always a blur and this December we also got given notice on our rental home so the landlady can renovate and sale. This happened to us pretty much at the same time last year and to be frank I just wasn't ready to move again so soon. I tried hard to stop it being a black cloud over Christmas but I just couldn't see the bright side. All the fun holiday plans and creative projects I was so looking forward to got scrapped, replaced by house hunting, organising the move and packing.

I guess it's all worked out fine in the end we have a nice house in a better area, close to the beautiful beaches of St. Kilda, St Clair. I'm still feeling fairly shell shocked from the move and I differently don't feel like my usual happy-go-lucky self yet but hopefully once all the unpacking is finished I'll be able to get my head straight and get on with life and work as usual.

I don't know if I have big plans for 2014 but I sure have some modest ones that I should put in writing soon. One of which should be 'working hard not to neglect this blog'. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and that the new year is off to a grand start. C x 


  1. Awww what a cute home! And your dog is adorable :) Hope 2014 is a wonderful year for you!

  2. Moving to a new house is really difficult. Packing, decorating and unpacking are just some of the things that most people want to avoid. But I agree that once you’re done with unpacking, everything will go back to normal. Your new home looks lovely by the way. How’s everything going so far?

  3. That's where I grew up. I just love it there.

  4. The location is just gorgeous! Just got done reading up on your blog and had a quick question. I was hoping that you could email me back when you get the chance. Thanks!
