Welcome Everyone to my little nest of Blogland lane! My house no. is 602 (Hope it's not already taken). I live in this house alone. Sometimes friends come and stay over. It's a little nest of two little bedrooms and a huge living room! :) I have a small garden beside my house. Roses are available here. So if anyone from Blogland lane wants rose, please contact me. :) I'm thinking of having a little pond outside my abode because there is enough space. & Hey! There is a little badminton court too infront of my nest. I'm alone here seeking for partners to play with... So... everyone, have a visit to my little cute nest in Blogland lane! I would love to enjoy a cup of tea with all my neighbours! I would like to thank KJ for the innovation & my aunt Lydia for helping me know about this nice community.
