A note from Geoff on Tuesday 1st August 2006

Sharon's doll has been spending her days sitting on our bed,
But at night she was banished to the floor!!!

In Beverly's words - "I want a place of my own"

Something like this would have been perfect
......but a bit too expensive!!!
This one was on an Ebay Auction, and sold for over $200.00

Beverly realised that this type of condominium was out of her price range,
but she still wanted her independence
and hated sitting on the floor - all night, every night!!!

Searching through other Ebay Auctions, she found the one below

It is not quite what she wanted,
though she is prepared to live in it for a few years
and then 'upgrade' to something more like the one above!!!

She is also hopeful that her Mother might take her out for a walk every now and again!!!

It appears to be in very good condition for it's age

The size looks to be just right,
and Beverly will be able to set up house in her own corner of the room!!!

The price seems pretty good too!!!
