Back in action!

Well we're finally back home. It took a month before we could all move back into the house and have use of the bathroom. Nearly all the tiling is finished, only the study and laundry to go. It looks lovely and we're so happy that we made the decision to pull up the carpet.

The shower screen was installed today so now we can have a shower again instead of just a bath - although - that has been nice in the winter to soak in the hot bath.

I haven't yet taken any final photos of the house. There's still a bit of painting to be done so I'm waiting until it's all done before I can put back the pictures, mirrors, ornaments etc and then I'll take some photos to show you all.

Our friends from Pet Beds Sale came to visit us the other week and we got our first glimpse of their van...

...sporting a HUGE photo of Marley on each side of the van. We got a real thrill to think that our puppies face is driving all over the city.

Not too sure they were so happy with such a BIG!!! picture on their van, it seems it just worked out that way. Oh well, they don't seem to mind and it's attracted them a few queries.

Marley and Jasper are slowly getting used to their new surroundings, no carpet in the loungeroom has been their biggest obstacle. The first day we came home Marley didn't know just where to lay down - he just stood in the middle of the loungeroom for an hour looking around at the cold hard tiled floor. Then I brought in their day beds and they quickly settled underneath my desk in their beds.

One positive in all this has been that while we stayed with my parents for a month the puppies slept in the spare room with the children and got used to not roaming around the house at night. So when we came back home we stopped putting down their barrier in front of their beds as we always have been at night to stop them wondering around our house. Now when I say go to bed off they go and stay in their beds all night until the morning - although I have heard the pitter patter of little feet a few nights and the jingle of a collar - I think it's Jasper haunting the halls to check if we are all asleep, then when I've got up to see where he is he has taken himself back to bed.

We're HAPPY to be back home!!!

Oh and you may have noticed that I've also added a Blog Classification to Cavaliers Corner. While reading some blogs recently the thought came to me that blogs should be classified similar to movies and books. I want people to feel that even their children and mine could read our blog and not be offended in anyway. We are family friendly and my aim is to only write that which is sincere, true and always to be kind.


  1. We are very happy that you are back! From the little we can see, the house looks great!
    Nobody can miss Marley on the van! He has such beautiful, soft features.

  2. We run a family friendly cottage with no sneaking around at night too. Think Marley will have to be my new pin up...... Call me fickle if you want to but haven't quite made up my mind Marley or Jasper :-)
