The dining room curtains that I collected last week have been draped over the dining room table and chairs since I got them home. They are now draped around the windows after I spent the afternoon gathering them up, putting in hooks and hanging them from their poles. It took all afternoon but I managed to get them right first time. It's amazing where the time goes to. Anyway after three years and four months in the cottage we now have matching curtains in the dining room and snug. Slowly we are getting there.
