On Wednesday evening Richard and a friend put up the last of the ceiling fans (in the study), and fitted three blinds at the dining room and kitchen windows. They look surprisingly good. We used blinds rather than curtains due to lack of space for the pelmet - but we like the effect, and I particularly like the lack of sunshine pouring in during the morning!
Yesterday I finished one crucial task: getting our fiction books in alphabetical order by author. We've combined mine, Richard's and some of the family fiction in the dining room, moving most of the children's books downstairs.
