    I did a quick search and was amazed to find that this "sister" thread didn't already exist. So, who's going to start the ball rolling?:D

    A little furniture polish on the rail makes pulling them easier without popping them out.

    It's easily done. Not the I'd do it of course. No never. Especially not rip the whole socket off the post. Oh no. Not me.

    Our van has curtains AND blinds. Seems pointless to me. I think the curtains are about to come down...

    The other week we moved the van around on the drive to fill it up for a boot sale early start. Left it plugged in.
    Early Sunday remembered to unplug it and left the cable on the drive. Didn't realise it had freakish wrapped around the rear tow bar. 2 miles later it was pointed out that we were towing a cable reel behind us. Obviously ruined but it had disengaged nicely from the socket so no damage at the house. Gutted though.

    Three eggs for my lunchtime cheese and tomato omelette...

    Obviously I separated the yolks from the whites first, then whipped the whites until fluffy and then stirred in the yokes...

    Not you then? :)

    But on the subject of blinds I think they are all fitted upside down. On ours, and I think every other, the solid blind comes from the bottom and the net blind from the top. For shading out the sun it should be the other way round. I keep meaning to see if they can be inverted - but I won't try that while we are away! Not a good time to break them.
