Ah yes the new DIY skills that you discover you have, when life throws a spanner in the works. Mums evening 'wrench' of the curtains in our kitchen is just waiting for the rail to come off the wall. It's part way there already. However, I have planned ahead and have the new one ready to go up. I could replace it now, but it's sort of become part of the evening ritual, mum tugging and me thinking to myself, why do it like that, you are going to pull the rail off!!!! It sounds awful to say, but I think in the midst of all this I have developed an unfortunately dark sense of humour. Though it maybe what is keeping me 'relatively' sane!thank you lovely I’m exhausted & either have insomnia or can’t keep my eyes open!
last night my old dog which has dementia ( nicknamed dementia dog!) managed to pull the curtain rail out of the wall in the early hours!! How you ask by repeatedly rubbing & pulling against the curtains!
so today I’m going to buy a new pair of shorter curtains & fill the holes in the wall!!
Hope the new shorter curtains work, and stay up for you! The winter months are now heading our way and the curtains will be being drawn far earlier now..... Ah well, the turning of the seasons. In all our madness, some things stay the same (or they used to). Xxx
