Happy New Year, Tonic-ettes! Finally, we have internet access again and I am reunited with you all via the blogosphere once more. We are settling in to our new home by the beach very nicely indeed - it's been a crazy but beautiful few weeks!


(above) This was the view that greeted Mr Tonic and I from our bed on the floor (our bed didn't fit around the corner!?) on our very first morning in the new house - tall trees as far as the eye can see. We simply had to reach for the iPhone and capture it. PS I have so much more to share - Mr Tonic is undercoating the living room as we speak, I write this from my brand new office (on a brand new chair!), the cicadas are loudly chirping and the sun is shining brighter than ever. 
It's good to be back. Happy New Year!

    Best wishes for all that lays ahead,

  9. Hi Louise,
    I totally know what you mean when you say you HAD to take that image... We moved our bedroom from one side of the house to the other, just so we could wake up "in the tree tops". It's like sleeping in a tree house!! ;)

  15. Hi Louise, I'm new to your blog and love the before and after's of your house. I will have to post some of my own as we currently undergo a bit of a house renovation/extension which I like to call extenovation! And I'm 6 months pregnant. Nothing like a deadline!
