Bedroom


"It was my bedroom before it was yours."

There are sometimes arguments between them when it comes to their bedroom as they have to share. Harvey has the half near to the door and Alyssa has the half that has the window. This often throws up some great (and sometimes funny) conversations.

"You can't get in as the door is mine." ~ Harvey

I have to keep reminding them that, although they have to share, they are extremely lucky to have a bed of their own, a roof over their heads and some lovely toys. Some children don't have any of those things.


There have been a few social media charity efforts. The newest one I have been nominated to do is to post a photo of your bedroom, donate £3 to SCF4kids charity and then nominate someone else.


"These photos are the bedrooms of children around the world! What a difference to my bedroom.

SCF4kids help vulnerable children around the world. Text ROOM43 £3 to 70070. To make a difference!!!

Upload your Bedroom photo and donate! I nominate these wonderful people .... you have 24 hours. Keep the nominations going!!!!
#betterbedroomsbetterfuture
 "

More information about the charity can be found on their website. http://www.scfoundation.org.uk/ or on their facebook or twitter pages. 

I showed these photos to them and they were simply amazed at how those children have as 'their bedroom'.

I have sent my donation by texting ROOM43 

£3 to 70070 and now they also have a much

 tidier room. Win win situation.





(Harvey didn't look too happy when I cleared the toys found under his bed.)

  1. That really made me laugh - "the door is mine"!! Great post, I think we all could do with reminding ourselves how lucky we are with the accommodation we have.

  2. I agree, we have to remember we are so lucky to even have a roof over our heads. I will definitely be teaching Amelia that as she grows x

  18. I always teach my children this too, we are so lucky with what we have. It makes me so annoyed to see children with so much stuff moan or complain, when my kids do it its drives me mad!

  20. My children are the same and desperate to have their own rooms. They don't realise how lucky they are

  21. Another good idea for bedroom décor is to have a throw rug. Throw rugs can be great bedroom décor because they can protect certain parts of the carpet not covered by the bed.Steampunk Home decor ideas
