As previously mentioned, we have new blinds. After a lot of thinking, we ended up going with timber venetians, mainly because they were the cheapest option, and well, I want to move out of this house more than I want fancy curtains LOL.
Luckily, Spotlight were having a sale, and I got them half price. It was a pity that the other windows blind was bent and had to be returned. But it is being re-ordered for us, so hopefully it will be here in the next few weeks.
