I think I have caught my breath. The last week has been a bit of a whirl with Air BnB guests, family visiting, Izz’s birthday and planning a trip to visit an ill relative as well as work and all of the routine stuff around the house.
We also managed to fit in a small project last weekend. We hung the timber blind which we bought for the guest room and I am really pleased with the result.
It is something that I had been contemplating for quite some time but I had not been able to convince myself of what the best window treatment for the room would be. I mentioned to The Duke that I thought the timber blinds would be good after one of our guests suggested that a window covering would afford a bit more privacy as the window overlooks the verandah. The Duke promptly found that Spotlight were having a half-price sale on blinds that week so we procrastinated no longer.
When we bought the blind we were a bit unsure about the size but discovered that for and extra $20 you can have them cut and made to measure. All you need to provide is the inside width of the window frame.
I will show you more of what I have been working on in the coming days.
In the meantime, here is the moonrise this evening. It looked spectacular as it rose over the trees.
