  1. Oh look at the sunshine and so bleak at my end of this.
    You are on the home run now that’s for sure. All gorgeous attention to detail, and thinking of the C16th when a window was an immense status symbol – there was a windows tax i think.
    but really if “the windows are so high up” they probably have never been cleaned so don’t start now, put the Windex down, step away from the Windex. It will look mullioned if it gets really grimy, and anyhow, window cleaning is a little bit … bourgeois? and when I checked my spelling I found: – ‘If someone says, “Oh, how bourgeois!” it’s probably an insult, meaning you’re preoccupied with middle class small mindedness.’
    and you so absolutely wouldn’t be.
