I have to have a kitchen blind. Kitchen at front of house next to front door, visible from road & sometimes the alleyway next door- but not now my Escallonia has thickened up nicely! Did inherit a roller blind- noooo, pulled up & all visible. So have venetian which allows room for plants on sill!
Mistake was to insist we got one of those wooden ones couple yrs ago. Yes very stylish, coulour great with floor covering, but sooooo heavy, plus part broken wotsit, so cant raise it unaided to either water plants properly nor clean the window. I used to do a monthly kitchen blitz involving cleaning prevous v.blind & window....now no idea when the window last got done inside. One good thing about the wooden type blind is that it doesnt seem to get as dirty, or perhaps I dont look any more......
Poor Becks, they weigh a bit too.
Right, curry awaits. J.
