I've been doubling up on my curtains today, getting ready for winter. No point in them being in the cupboard, when they can be making the room feel more snug. I found some plastic shower curtain rings in a charity shop for 20p, they are ideal for hanging the second set through the wooden rings.
The green curtains on the right are lightweight summer curtains, and the thicker lined curtains get hung over the top. This is the back window.
I have a thru lounge and here you can see that the winter curtains on the front window are a different length to those already hanging. I don't care about that, they can't be seen from the outside. You can just see the radiator here, it has a sideboard in front of it, which would block the heat coming into the room, that's if I have the heating on. I don't plan on switching it on untill it is six foot in snow outside like it was last winter. Then I will move the sideboard to one side.
Sad news about Sir Jimmy Saville. He brought a lot of joy to a lot of people, with his TV shows and his charity work. RIP Sir Jimmy.
Don't forget to put your clocks back one hour tonight.
