I'm not sure if it's just me being clumsy but there's an awful lot of things breaking around here. So, in the spirit of make do and mend I have:
- just glued my kitchen bin back together. (I feel stupidly proud)
- hunted around charity (thrift) shops for 'new' white cotton pillow cases after I couldn't repair my last ones any more. RIP old pillow cases - you have a new life in my duster basket (not that I dust
much / at allever)
- got a mending basket which is bulging with things to mend. I reckon it stares at me as I walk around the room...
- learned to darn my favourite gloves. A good friend found them for me - saying 'I knew these would fit you, they have freakishy long fingers too.' I've never had a pair of shop bought gloves that have fitted. So these stripey guys need preserving and will now live to see another winter.
