Party in the living room
It was my birthday last week and my mum let me throw a party at home. Our living room is quite big so I could invite a lot of people. I have good hi-fi equipment. I put some cushions on the floor because six chairs, two armchairs and a sofa wouldn’t be enough for such a crowd. We danced a lot and had a great time.

Children’s room – I can relax there!
When I’m tired and want to relax I usually go to my sister’s room. She’s only 7 years old and she has the nicest room in our flat. It’s not big but it’s sunny and comfortable. She has plenty of teddy bears, puppets and dolls.

I don’t like my bathroom!
I’m going to redecorate my bathroom. It’s very small so I’m going to get rid of the bathtub and have a shower cubicle installed. I’m also thinking of changing tiles because I’m bored with the red ones. Everything will be black and white. I’ll also change the mirror as I need a bigger one.

In the kitchen
Although we have a well furnished dining room, we usually have dinners in the kitchen. My parents love cooking and they have everything that is important for a good dinner. We have not only an electric cooker, an oven and a pressure cooker, but also a fryer, a food processor and a mixer. Our kitchen table is not as big as the one in the dining room but we prefer to eat in the kitchen because we have everything at hand.
