The Truth Is Out There

13 Sep

From Tumblr


Caught myself writing this to my friend this morning:

I’m supposed to be preparing for tomorrow’s workshop so I’m finding other things to do instead.  Cleaned the kitchen window and put up a new net this morning.  I’ll probably blog about it later.  

Now you know the truth: my life is as dull as a net curtain.

Even worse, I inflict it on my dear readers.

Please don’t abandon me.

You know what makes it worse?  I added ‘Net Curtains’ as a tag.

Save yourselves!   There’s no hope for me but you should get out while you still can.

    That duck and roll into the kitchen trick doesn’t work if your car is on the drive and they can hear the radio from outside! This is the first time ever I’ve had a couple of net curtains – we face due South, and they diffuse the glare when the sun dares to shine.

      I like privacy. If you leave your windows bare, you’re inviting me to look in. 🙂 I like to know the people I invite into my home 🙂

    I have wooden/bamboo blinds — no way you’re catching me! And we live in a raised bungalow so the door is below the windows. But I do fancy me a nice set of nets. that is why I put a pretty sheer set OVER the bamboo. Ha. double secure.

    You should have used “peeping Toms” as a tag…… it would have set a record for hits in one day.

    that’s not true, because I watch for your posts daily because they make me feel better

    Darn…was going to run but couldn’t see past the guess I continue to hang out here.

    This must be a very English thing to do since we don’t do it here in Canada. Even shear curtains have gone out of style. We do a lot of blinds here.

      I have blinds on that window but I’m paranoid about people looking in. Windows are right on the street here so that’s probably why.

    in the US we call these sheers, or privacy panels. Often just to keep the sun from destroying heavier more expensive window treatments. if they’re openweave we call them net because they vaguely resemble fishermen’s nets. Sort of.

      We usually call them nets if they are thicker and ruffled; this is voile, really, but I didn’t want to get too technical. Just shows I should think less 😉

    Ma Fightback won’t entertain net curtains – it causes angst when people stare as they walk past our living room – shudder!

    I couldn’t stop giggling while I was reading, you had me at the first word and kept me until the last. I love a good net curtain over curtains anyday. The floor is too far away to drop and do the roll, it would only end with a big ouchy for me and that would be bad. lol

    I do not use many shades or blinds, give me light! I do love the little red horse!

    You put them up, then fling them wide open for your Blogging buddies – paranoia has never been so interesting. 😀


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
