• Debate of the day - Jane wants to replace the curtains (which need replacing as they have a floral pattern and colour which clashes with other furnishings in the room) with slatted blinds. She is talking about wide wooden slats. I am viscerally against this idea and I wasn't sure why so have thought it through.

    I think that there are several things going on here in my head to do with the pattern of bedroom and the characteristic actions and feelings associated with a harmonious sleeping space.
