View from dining room window which is south facing.

In old houses there are often bits that don't quite fit with the current configuration. That's the case here. There is a window that is pretty much extraneous so I just leave it covered with a lace curtain.

Psalm 119:11 (New International Version)
I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.


  1. Does your crook weather come from the South?

    There is something about lace curtains ... and their sensuous movement in the breezes ...

  2. I don't really know what side bad weather comes from. There are times when the gutters overflow on the south side and the eastern side.

    Yes there is something lovely about lace curtains in the breeze. In Queensland we used to have our windows open a lot of the time. For me, one of the signs of Christmas was the winds from the north lifting our bedroom curtains. Here we don't open the windows much other than at the back where there are no curtains. It just doesn't seem to get hot enough to bother, we just open the doors and that's enough.

    I do open this window in the peak of summer but there is never any breeze coming from that direction.

  3. When I was married, my in-laws lived in Perth and we often went there at Christmas. During the night a wind would come up from the east and be blowing nicely ... then about 9am it would stop.Bang.Just like that.Stop.Dead.

    And boy would it then get hot ... within 30 mins it would be around the old 100.
