Nosy neighbors

Where we live it is quite easy to see into other peoples houses. Of course everyone, including us, uses curtains to cover up the insight a bit but it´s not always easy.

When we moved into our house we bought curtain rails and curtains, only that the curtains were too small. So we had to fix them each day to make sure it wasn´t open for people to look in. We didn´t have the money to get new curtains either and the ones we had bought were on sale so we couldn´t even exchange them. So we just had to live with them.

It´s at times like that you really miss to have faux wood blinds. Blinds is something so common in Sweden/Europe that almost every house has got it. It´s so smart, you just open it if you want to or close it, no need to worry that someone will watch you sing in your undies or talk to yourself. Or what else you might be doing in the privacy of your own home. *lol*

We got new curtains this year actually. We found some beautiful dark blue curtains that covers the whole window. Better than the white ones we had before. However we didn´t throw them away or anything like that, we put them together so they make one big curtain now for three windows instead of for six as it was before.
So no need to worry about nosy neighbors anymore. *lol*

Hi Linda,
Know what you mean. I don't mind calming music but much prefer to quiet so I can concentrate when working. I don't know how my son can do his work with his music so loud.
