I think you are all enjoying Vonnie's Ireland as much as I am (I promise when these Ireland posts are over,I'm going back to being called Yvonne again hahaha)
Today, I am bringing you all into my house (clean your feet on the way in and make a wish. Aparently when you cross a threshold for the first time you make a wish)
This is going to be fun I think, it's a very big post and there is alot to see. My house seems to look alot better in good light for some reason. It does in these photographs anyway.
Okay, lets get started, Welcome into my home :)
This is the first room you see when you come through my
front door. Say hello to miss Charlie, shes sleeping on
my mom's bed in the sitting room :)
This is further into the sitting room, here you can
see alot of family photo's and a nice plant where
a tv used to sit. But since we converted down there
into my mom's bedroom the tv has been moved
Here we have a still from the movie The Quiet Man,
I think my neighour bought this for my dad, a long
This is my mom's bed, say hi miss Charlie again lol.
She usually sleeps there at night as well :)
This is the other corner of my sitting room.
I don't mind that it's converted for me mom when she
comes to stay. The stairs are too much for her legs now
and I never use it anyway :)
This is the dining room, where we all sit and chat
and this is one of my fave rooms in my house. It
seems to look alot brighter than it usually does,
but thats just great lighting from out back.
Here it is from a different angle, now you can see
how dull it is. That sofa is actually third hand lol,
but I try to keep it well clean :)
Here is the top of the first set of stairs
(there is three in my house) and at the top
of the stairs you can see charlie's water bowl
which sits on her mat that say's 'The Boss Eats Here'
Oh, here we go, this is me bathroom.:)
Here is the last set of stairs in the house.
That carpet is over ten years old, it could
do with a good clean it's filthy lol.
This is my kitchen, there's hardly any room it
at all. It's quite tiny. I remember as a child
if too many people were in the kitchen when dinner
was being made, my dad used to say there's too
many chiefs and not enough indians lol.
This is the other side of the kitchen,
that wall hasn't been wallpapered in
over ten years lol. Over time many people
have written stuff on it.
This plant sits on my kitchen window
with a salt and pepper shaker one of you
recently sent me :)
Another veiw of my kitchen :)
This door leads outside to my back garden.
Just a small view of the corner
of the dining room :)
Lol,I got her attention this time :)
This was taken when I was standing at
the top of the stairs. I zoomed the camera in
on here and whistled, and she looked up. I think
this is by far the cutest pic I have ever seen
of Charlie. Look at that wee face *loves her*
I love how big my bath looks here,wow lol.
Me mom insisted I take a pic of her
nails my sister paid for her to get done.
They are her own she just got them manicured :)
This is the view from my bedroom window.
It's raining very heavy here but you can't notice it.
This is my computer corner (by the way we are now in
One of you sent me a jigsaw of Brian with Teddy
and I made it up and put it into this frame,last
year I think.
What I treasure most :)
Someone got me this last Christmas :)
It's a clock.
As you can see, I'm slightly (just ever so slightly,
mind you) obsessed with these people lol :)
This is the wee table beside my bed
(yes, I forgot to take my mouth-guard I wear to
bed every night back into it's wee container
but it's in it now lol)
This hangs on the back of my bedroom door
(I got it a few years ago)
This my wardrobe (that I hate)
but you can only see a bit of it here)
My tv (Again, I'm not obsessed by
Gale or Randy as you can see)
Do you know anyone who wore one of these? lol
I really need to get a frame for these,
they are laminated presently just waiting
to be framed.
Say hi to Ruby,one of you sent me her :)
A closer look (not sure why lol)
This is where we sleep (yes, they all sleep on my bed too
lol) That's Tinkerbell (the white cat)and the star wars dude
who I think is called Yoda, a dolphin called Mitzee and
a small bear called Sasha.
The view straight a head from my bed :)
Where you see Gale Harold written it's actually
cross stiching I did a few years ago, it needs a wee
frame too :)
That's my blue gym ball,it sits behind
my computer chair but I put it at the bottom of my bed to
take these photo's :)
One of Randy's autographs that Judy got me :)
I'm afraid that brings us to the end folks,
did you have a nice visit? I sure hope you did.
Charlie and I loved having you all stop by,and
do call again, you're welcome any time :)
