It Was Nice While it Lasted...














I surprised my eldest daughter with a room makeover for her 12th birthday this year. She was very happy with the result but I have to say that it hasn't looked the same since that day. I am so glad I took photos. My darling daughter is a chip off the proverbial block, rather arty, very creative and, consequently, has several projects on the go at any given time. The consequence of this (and a lack of suitable work space), is a not so tidy bedroom.

Hi Ange,
Just blog hopped to your blog after reading your comments at Andrea's, The Pink Poodle, blog.
I loved reading your blog & can SOOOOO relate to your mag addiction, I am lucky though I work in a big newsagency so I get the benefits of reading everything with out having to buy them all!!!!
I also spend far too much time on the net reading & checking out other blogs (have been hear about 2 hours so far tonight!!!!)
Come visit me back when you get the chance. I will add you to my blog roll & will be back to visit often.
