Blinds

I understand curtains. I've lived with curtains all my life. If I were buying new curtains it would simply be a question of what colour I fancied.  But blinds? I've not done blinds before.

And in the bedroom. What if they leak light? What if they're horribly fiddly? What if I regret the decision the moment they're up?

Her Next Door has blinds. In every room. They look really clean and cool and modern. 

The only place I've dealt with blinds before is in Travel Lodges. 

I liked the salesman. He wasn't pushy. A child started laughing when he was measuring up.  What the ...?  It was his ring tone, of course. 

Ailz is no use. I voice my objections; she bounces them back at me.  Might as well talk to the wall.

Oh, all right. Let's go for it!
