Some of the elegance of my old sash windows is lost when I need to wedge them open with a bean tin. But it’s so hot today I had to get some air in and the sashes are broken, not the only ones in the house either. They can be repaired but it’s a big job and there would be a lot of repainting to do afterwards so that’s not a job for the faint hearted. I’m not ready for that yet. I did clean the windows which I think was quite virtuous in this heat, but I have visitors coming this week and they still looked awful from the house washing.
