M: Hello.
H:   Hi, it's Helen. Thanks for the photo. Have you decorated your fantastic new bedroom?
M: Well, I haven't finished. It's a mess! I haven't unpacked all my clothes and I haven't organized my wardrobe. And I haven't put up all my favorite music posters.
H:   Have you painted the walls?
M: No, I haven't - they're okay. But Mum and I have done lots of things. The room looks a lot brighter now. We've bought a new bedspread and a new rug. They're red and pink. We've put up new curtains and we've changed the lampshades, too. They look really cool!
H:   Have you changed the layout?
M: Yes, I have. I've moved the bed but not the desk. I asked Dad for some bookshelves but he hasn't built them because he's so busy.
H:   I can hear music. Is that yours?
M: No, that's my sister Lydia's.
H:   Has she done her room?
M: Yes, she has. She's played the same CD ten times. I am sick of it!
