Chin up

I'm a bit down tonight because we just found out we didn't get a house we've been looking at and picturing ourselves in and planning renovations for in our heads. It had this fantastic sunroom at the back which would have been my studio. we were outbid by someone. so now it's back to the drawing board - trolling the internet, house inspections every saturday, haggling with estate agents, etc. etc. etc.

it's a very competitive market here, unlike the one in america at the moment. I wonder if what is happening there will happen here eventually and maybe we should just wait, and house prices will start going DOWN. if we weren't getting kicked out of our rental place I would probably do that. But for now I have just drawn myself a little chin up giraffe, and will sit down with some red wine and a movie and commiserate with my hubby. at least i have someone to go through all this with. that's the one thing i keep coming back to that always makes me feel okay. :-)

What a cute giraffe! You have such a wonderful style!
So sorry about your not getting the house you wanted... but that means there's a better house out there waiting for you. :-)

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I like the dog best too! I'm going to have to redo that one...

Great sketch! So expressive! Sorry you missed out on the house. Like Monica, I believe there really is a better one out there - things happen for a reason.

Thank you also for commenting on my blog! It's great to hear from a fellow Melbournite! Looking forward to visiting your site again.
