new addition

This is BUBBLES ... my 11yo daughter, Sam, bought her (we think it's a female!) at a market along with the vintage cage.

I must say that I'm terribly impressed with how Sam is taking full responsibility of looking after her.  It's fantastic!!! 

We hope to be able to let the budgie fly around freely at times ... but this will take time, a lot of training and patience.

third room

Here's the room finished!!! Sorry the photos are not great ... I shall post some new photos later. The girls are being great sports about sharing a room. They are good girls! The 4yo is even packing up her toys to keep the room tidy. It also helps when the toys all have a place!

lounge room part 2

Here's the 'nearly' finished room ... little miss wanted to get in ALL the photos ... I'll take some more later!
I still want to get a new white lounge and a wing back chair ... one day ...

the lounge room

This is the lounge room ... the second room to be redecorated! I'm afraid this room will be a work in progress for a while as I will do bits as I can afford too. But I shall work on other rooms too.

I decided to get rid of the 'beech' Freedom furniture as it was too chunky for the small room. Once I began to remove the furniture ... I thought about pulling up the carpet ... then the painting began ...

third room

This is Sam's room ... small and crowded. I am in the process of painting this room at the moment and it's beginning to look good !!! The blue curtains have been replaced with white wooden blinds making the room look bigger and lighter. Stay tuned ...
