first revamp

This photo was taken in 2007 before we revamped my older daughter's room ... unfortunately I only took the one 'before' photo.

The wall colour is an extremely dull blue/gray ... there was a roman blind and we replaced it with some white wooden venetians ...

The ceiling and walls were painted a fresh white with a deeper pink feature. We bought a second hand double bed and made the bed head ourselves.

A very cheap and stunning renovation and my daughter loves it (not to mention her friends)!


Family is the most important thing in my life. My family will always be there for me ... during the hard times, fun times and loving times. I will instill these family values in my three adorable girls.

Being a single mum is tough ... but it sure does have it's rewards. My children are my life. I adore my girls. We have our moments ... as does every family ... but we are always there for each other.

My girls are 14, 11 and 4 years of age. My 4yo is teaching us all a thing or two about patience, tolerance and unconditional love ... which is a good thing, especially for the older girls who at times can be selfish at times ... but can't we all?

Keeping on top of finances can be a bit of a struggle ... let's face it ... it's a major struggle. We have a budget ... but it's difficult to stick too ...

Anyway, this is just an introduction of me and my life ... enjoy!
