One of the advantages of living in a country where Christmas and New Year are not really celebrated is that the local populace are still working as if it's a normal weekend. So, while Jiajia and I have taken a few days of holiday, we've been able to arrange for new curtains to be hung. We're hoping that having two sets of curtains in the lounge will help keep it warmer (both by cutting down the draft from the large windows and by reducing the amount of space our little electric heater has to warm up). Ava bought the Italian-made material earlier in the year, but it's taken the current cold spell to prompt us into finding various workers to sew them into curtains and hang them up. Eeek - how domesticated am I getting?
