At last we have hung up the draught curtains for the backdoor. It took Alan a long time to get the bends just right but they look great. They look good when they are open during the day and it is wonderful to be able to close them in the evening. What's more, when I have to get up in the middle of the night the closed curtains make me feel more secure because the light from the staircase coming in through the bottom and sides of the door can no longer be seen! This always made me think that the door was not properly closed.
