Banbury car share required

I work as a Primary school teacher in Banbury and commute daily from Charlbury. Unfortunately, my car is currently out of action so I am looking for a temporary car share. Generally, I leave at around 7:30 and come back at 18:00 but I can be flexible on timings. I live in Ticknell Piece and the school is on Bloxham Road, Banbury. If you share this daily commute please get in touch, I would be happy to pay for petrol and you would be a life saver! Thanks in advance, Rebecca

Roman blind (black-out lined)

Professionally hand-made Roman blind. In excellent condition, made with quality designer material and effective black out lining. Can be set inside the window recess, or in front/outside of it. Complete with wooden section that attaches to the wall - the blind then attaches to that by velcro. It's an unusual dimension, being quite wide/long. Width = 112" / 285cm, drop 51" / 130cm. It looks slightly crumpled in the photo as it has been in storage, but will flatten easily.
If anyone considers altering the dimension (could feasibly be split into two narrower window dimensions), I could put you in contact with the person who originally made it. £25
