Get it Taped

Isn't it strange how things developed in Wartime can end up being modified to be useful in Peacetime? Also somehow sad that often it is atrocity that is the mother of invention. These musings brought about because Rufflette curtain tape...

Yes folks, 15 days after the work began [and over EIGHT weeks since I had originally expected what was deemed "A Three-Day Job" to be completed] the work on the double glazing is finally finished and the dust-sheets have gone.
