Curtain call

We need curtains. Not the big heavy kind that shuts out all form of sunlight, but the flimsy see-through kind that keep people from seeing all the nasty things that you do in the comfort of your own home.

Our windows are also crying out for some attention and colour, plus I would like to be able to walk around nude (or at least semi-nude) without our neighbours having a heart attack from the view across the road.

A friend from Melbourne mentioned that walking around nude in one’s Parisian apartment and watching the neighbour across the street walk around nude in her apartment, seemed like a very European thing to do. No doubt an image obtained from having watched several of those arty movies. Still, I’m not sure I want that elderly couple on the 5th floor, 3rd window from the left, watching my wobbly bits wobble about every Sunday morning. We’re definitely getting curtains next weekend.
