Visitors to the shack will know that the wet weather drives straight into the side of the house, and that on more than one occasion water has got under the sliding doors, soaking the bottom of the long curtains there and staining them.
While I was away gallivanting with the science teachers diligent Jeannie set to work to replace the curtains. This is a big job, apparently, with much careful measuring, anxious cutting and endless modifications to cope with curtain rods that aren't quite horizontal. She completed the two big ones while I was away and looks set fair to finish the other two today, before we head home tomorrow.

And I should put in a plug for Elna the Mighty, Jeannie's little sewing machine, which has done sterling work on this and so many other projects in its career of well over thirty years. It even went to Pakistan with Sue Morton, as well as being lugged all over the place by us. Statutory declaration: we receive no favours from the Elna company for this endorsement.
