MY NEW TEMPLATE..MY POODLE AND ME!!

Hello again everyone!!

As previous visitors to my site will know..I am a NEW lady to blogland...and it has been a bit daunting...
I love looking through other sites..they are all gorgeous and innovative..and might I say an inspiration to me..
I set up my original blog site just by using the pro forma google template etc..but I was NEVER really happy as I couldnt work out how to list my fav blog sites along the side etc etc..
SOO last night I was visiting my gorgeous MANDII's site..and thought I shall go through each one of her favs from top to bottom and see if I could work out what I can do to improve my site...
WELL I DIDNT HAVE to scroll down too far...and I found ALI"S page...

She had a NEW template listed for sale...and I bit the bullet..bought it..and here it is...THE PINK POODLE..

I just HAD to have that one for the following reasons...I have 2 adult sons..a husband...and a TOY POODLE who is also a BOY/MAN!! AND with my love of the poodle..why NOT indulge my fantasy re girlie things and have this as my NEW BLOG THEME/HEADING etc..

SOO I am all excited about my NEW adventure (so to speak)...and have just listed a few photos of my GORGEOUS "SOOTY" (yes he was on my old site..BUT this is ALL new..soo we have to start off with him!!)...he is my 9 yo baby...
and I threw in a photo or two of me with sooty...as I havent got much else to talk about at the minute..!!

AND GIRLS...ALISON is THE MOST DELIGHTFUL...GORGEOUS person ... SHE HAS BEEN MORE THAN HELPFUL...
she actually got up in the middle of the night and surprised me with an email detailing my new site...
SHE IS JUST THE BEST!! words cannot express how happy she has made me...being able to look professional..and with something I love..POODLES!!!

ANYWAY enough waffling...I have to finish cleaning the house (per usual)..and photo more bits & bobs for ebay...

xx andrea...alias the pink poodle!! I LOVE IT!!

Hi Andrea, great first post on your new blog! Well done. We had a toy poodle when I was growing up - he was Mum's dog really (he loved her the best!)and he was called "Happy Chappy" and he was crazy! always jumping and licking, which, I wasn't too fond of! Sooty looks adorble though! Kathryn XX
