We all know I've been waiting to have an awning installed on my front window...well, I got fed up with waiting and called the company and asked how much longer I might have to wait?
They had said about three weeks and it's been much longer. (About two months so far).
The awning is being installed next Friday. Yay!!
Meanwhile, the sun coming in through the front window has been making the lounge room very warm, even with keeping the blind drawn down.
And at this time of year I've been noticing the cold coming in at night too.
So when my son-in-law and grandson arrived on Sunday to install my curtain rods I was very glad to see them!
They'd meant to come sooner, but they'd been busy...
Anyway, they arrived with the big toolbox and the new cordless drill and set to work.
The lounge room rod went up first and I got my old thermal lined curtains out of storage (stuffed into a corner of the wardrobe) and put them up, drawing them closed to shut out the sun.
Within 5 minutes (truly!!) the lounge room was noticeably cooler and much more comfortable.
It was so nice!
I notice also that the cold isn't creeping in around the edges anymore either.
I'm not so worried about the winter now.
The bedroom curtains were next, then they put up all my framed pictures and finally my lounge room is truly looking like home.
And guess what! The grandson was doing the driving!
He's 16, has his learner's permit and appears to be a natural driver.
He's such a talented young man, also winning medals in his chosen school sport.
