No Kippers But Plenty Of Nets

Never sweep.After four years the dirt gets no worst. Quentin Crisp

Welcome to December!
 I was up early to listen to "The Sounds of the 60's"
We listened to the rest of the show in a nice warm bed.
After getting up and having breakfast.
It was time to upgrade the house a little bit.
Net curtains and tidying up bedrooms was top of the list.
Time for some fresh air!
 We managed to get a parking space.
First stop was my Dunelm Experience.
 Picked up net curtains and net curtain wire.
Next stop was to get some top up shopping in Lidl.

 Much prefer my Kenny :)↓
 Pops in to see my dad for an hour.
Enjoyed a good coffee↓
Gets back home to continute upgrading the house.
My older son had some nice blue net curtains.
My younger son had some nice green and white net curtains.
We had some nice blue bird net curtains in the small window.
 After we finished tea.
It was time to relax....
 I put another internet order for some more net curtains for the huge stairs window.
(As the nets have not been changed for 8 years!!!)
It was ready for 10 to 6pm.
However I was in my PJ's and the shop shuts at 6pm...

We bought this particular film a few months ago...
