My parents are getting UPVC windows. In the house I grew up in. I am upset. Even though, as my Mum pointed out, the windows I mostly grew up with (wooden) were not the original, Crittall windows. It's a 1930's house. But at least the wooden window frames were... in keeping with the house, in some way. Organic.

They're going to be white. And shiny. And need no maintenance whatsoever. Everyone in Cheadle has them. And as my Mum also pointed out, I've not lived there for years. Although I do feel that it's my childhood home. I've asked for a photograph, before the deed is done. I don't know if I can sleep in a house with plastic windows.

I hope my ability to speak comes back.
