:D Each penny counts!

Could you look to do jobs for people you know for a small amount of money? I'm sure with Christmas coming, it will all mount up.

With families and friends you know, you could just ask if there is anything they want doing, for a small amount of money, like sweeping leaves, washing the kitchen floor, walking their dog, anything like that.

i know how you feel abi! i'm 16 and have two buns to provide for. luckily though i have a job in argos...:oops:
at 14 you can apply to hairdressers, and they'll only let you sweep up hair, make teas and coffees etc.. its a good saturday job and the pay is okay:) you should give it a try!
good luck with saving and yay for making your bunny's life better:D

I don't think they would want me to wash their floors, I would flood them! :lol:
Most of my friends live far away from me. Family don't like paying people to do the jobs :?

Hairdressers? There is one like 2-3 mins from me, just down the road. Will either give them a ring or pop in there tomorrow. Do you know how much they pay?

Tell your parents and family how much you really want your shed, and let them know how important it is to you..
Santa will be visiting in Dec and you never know, might get a nice surprise ;)
Good for you for saving for something you really want.:D

True, but then I would have to pay to either have it delivered or pay for someone to pick it up. :lol:

GRRR!!! Looks like a shed plan wont be happening as I just noticed some patio slabs on freecycle and asked mum if I can put some on the grass for when I put the shed on and she said we already have a shed, I wouldn't call it a shed, its a little tiny outhouse made out of concrete with wooden door! Shes made my cry now :( Now I feel like a bad bunny mum because its either a small hutch and run or a concrete outhouse? :(

My pair live in an outhouse. It's attached to the kitchen. They have a hutch in it with the door removed. they are very happy there and it's bigger than a hutch.

I think you are doing the best for your bunny for your age. If you are really worried about space, i am sure you'll be able to think of something or come up with some way of increasing it.

I bet bunny has a lovely life with you! :)
