Curtains for me!

Woohoo! Finally…..after licking and dabbing with paint in various places around the house I get to complete the curtains for our bedroom. Our bedroom needs lick of paint too, maybe it will be done soon…maybe I will find other rooms to do first…like big man’s who wants it blue with green army type stuff on…….well onto the curtains anyway.

Hmmm yes well the old ones were so old that they were literally falling apart and were almost thread bare on the parts where they are pulled together. I’m quite ashamed to admit that by the way! I don’t think they are even usable as dog beds!!

I have had this fabric for sometime now but like I said other things kept cropping up.

You can see that the underneath set are quite see-through but I did love that colour soooooo much and really neeeeeded it and it matched our bed cover so well 😉 ….so another set had to go over the top. Now when closed there will be no peeping from outside whatsoever!

Big man and I have been making lemonade too. Yum! Here’s the recipe if you want to have a go 😉 It’s supposed to serve 5. By the way we added extra water as it was too sharp for Big man. A large jug went in our fridge. A couple of hours later it had vanished like magic!

  • 4 lemons, juiced
  • 1L (1 3/4 pints) water
  • 100g (4 oz) caster sugar
In a 2 litre jug, combine the lemon juice, water and sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Chill in refrigerator. (for the sake of disappearing links)
