Crossing this one off my 50 List has taken some time. Far too long really, as the process has been blighted by a few shortage complications, but mainly, frankly, by procrastination. But this week I hung the final drops of new curtains in my little lounge.
Butt ugly wooden blinds had adorned the windows since I moved in here, closing the already small room in, and gayly catching dust. I hated them, but this house is just a rental after all, so I put up.
Then a whole lot of family love came to the fore to relinquish me from my blinded ways.
Thanks must go to...
- My brother Rik for removing the butt ugly blinds. I can barely wait until the next inorganic collection to get rid of them altogether
- My lovely Uncle Kevin and Aunty Lois, who own Waikato Windoware, and who supplied me with brand new custom made rails, for a ridiculous mates rates price. AND came to put them up for me free of charge. Amazing.
- My other brother John, for plugging the holes left by said butt ugly blinds.
- My landlords, aka my parents, for paying for new curtains.
