Cowart's Common Room

Well they came, eventually. 'What time will you be here?' 'Between 8 and 9' And what time did they arrive? 1245. We are talking about the window fitters - but these ones at least appeared pleasant and to know what they were about. So I didn't mind helping by standing on the ladder and fetching and carrying a bit. Anyway it all passed off well enough and I am rid of my foggy windows at a cost of £900 or thereabouts. But so much 'stuff' to shift to let them get to the windows.
Tedious in the extreme emptying the office cabinets. What a lot of things we keep and for what reason?

Anyway the day was a beautiful one though cold and a trifle damp, but blue skies and plenty of light. Hallelujah! And the twilight lengthening. I must go and fetch the car: relegated to the roadside to leave the driveway free for the window folk.

To cheer me up (and you perhaps) here is a picture of Avignon and specifically the bridge which collapsed as a result of so many people dancing on it.

Inthemud's Avatar Hi Fennie, I am glad you got your windows sorted, though their time keeping was somewhat off!
Ah what a lovely picture of the bridge at Avignon.
Lovely reminder of singing the song as a child!

Withy Brook's Avatar We have several in the conservatory that would cost us an arm and a leg to change, so we have to put up with it!

We do like our new door and would love to do the big picture window in the Studio but it would cost a small fortune by itself so it will have to stay single glazed with thermal blinds at night.
