Why are there cloths around the dining table

If you are wondering why there are cloths around the dining table, its because we visited the Jurong library on Sunday, where there was a Wayang stage. under the stage was a hidey hole and after I had chosen the books, I found husband and the girls there, in the hidey hole, reading. The playeum guys had put serial lights in the hidey hole so that there was enough reading lights.

So here is what the inside of our hidey hole looks like

Anjali stayed in this morning for cereal and story before going to school and she liked it.

There are a couple of engineering issues to be sorted out though.

1. The duppattas are cellotaped to the dining table, which is definitely a temporary solution and wont hold if Sophia yanks it twice. I have to look for a permanent one, probably involving sewing across with a strip of cloth.
2. Ventilation, though not as much of a problem as it would be if the cloth were thicker, is still an issue.
3. Lumination. We have our Christmas lights and we have asked husband to help us tape the lights under the table to complete the hidey hole.

I have always wanted to make card table houses, which are superbly imaginative, look beautiful on the outside, but very time consuming, but the one we have come up with, I think is not a bad idea at all.
