Our Room.

Friday, 22 April 2011


I never thought having my sister as a roomy would ever be fun. We're so different in lots of ways, and growing up in that little space was a bit crazy at times. I'm a neat freak, and Kezia is, well, the opposite.  She's more laid back and care free about stuff, while i'm very meticulous. These little differences were often the reason we'd get into squabbles and the like, and we would both wish for our dear God to give us separate rooms, were we could do as we liked with our own space!

It wasn't until after I moved out of home and went to University that we both realised how much we loved each other's company, and yes we have differences, but we came to miss those little things too! 
Now every time I come back home it's all laughs and I'm so grateful to have her as a roomy! 

We decided to have a little tidy and redecorate our room, to sort of mark how special it is for us to share this little space with each other. We've both come to compromise, about a few things, but we're determined to make this space enjoyable and liveable too. :) ..xo
