Laying peacefully in my babies darkened nursery. Baby drifting into a deep sleep, with the sleep sheep making sounds of waves on a beach. Pop, pop, pop the noise of yet another blackout curtain peeling off my window letting in the bright sunshine. Baby wakes, of course.
I have tried so many black out curtains, the ones hanging up on the window are blacked out already but I want to put something behind these curtains so that not a weeny bit of light gets through. It seems that if there is a slight gap in the curtains a man outside with a stage spotlight is beaming a ray through, and its usually onto my babies head!
It’s become the bane of my life, almost an obsession! I just fix one corner and another gap appears, I feel like Al Pacino in Insomnia where he can’t stop the light either. Argh! Maybe I should just brick it over?? Now I really do sound crazy. Any advice on the best blackout curtains would be gratefully received.
