My Favourite Place I've just finished some hard homework and I know
I've done it wrong. I've had a really bad day; my head is overflowing
with worries about SATS tests/ my 'English talk' / that 20-page-essay
I haven't started that has to be in by tomorrow. So where do I go?
(Although 'off the end of a cliff ' springs to mind, it's not the
answer!) I go to my bedroom with a bar of chocolate, tumble onto my
bed, press the play button on my video and settle down to watch
'Friends', or 'Trigger Happy TV'. Ah! Much better!

Purple!That's all you see when you walk into my room. Masses of purple
everywhere, followed by a blue beaded lampshade on my light that hangs
so low that it brushes your head every time you walk under it.
Mirrors, pictures and photographs decorate my room. What's better than
having a picture painted by your mum, gold and silver mirrors, and
photographs of your best friends smiling down at you from the wall?

There is a lot crammed into my small room! My giant wardrobe (my other
favourite place is at the shops, so it has to house a lot of
clothes!), and my bed full of cushions: - I love cushions! I have
cushions of every colour, and I especially love the Indian designs
with beads or tassels. The last time I counted there were thirteen! A
curtain canopy hangs over my bed, with my blue dream catcher above my
head as I sleep.

The bay window is one of the best features of my room.

It is framed
with white voile curtains that float in the breeze. There are
stained-glass roses on the glass, and lots of glittery stickers! Blue
wind chimes hang from my curtain pole, and I have coloured bottles on
the window ledge, each containing a different coloured wooden rose.

The atmosphere is usually tranquil, as it feels so soft and cosy in
the room. The calming aroma of scented candles laced with 'Deci-Delà'
perfume fills the air. It often smells like chocolate in my room too,
as I am a dedicated chocoholic.

Sometimes, though, the ambience is far from calming. When I've slept
through my alarm in the morning I'm running late for school, my bed
isn't made, my clothes are all over the floor and I can never find
anything I need. The room feels messy and I feel hassled.

When my friends are staying for a sleepover, and we're having so much
fun that you couldn't get us to sleep if you taught us algebra, the
room feels as if it's full of laughter.

My room is my favourite place because it reflects my personality.
