Had a lazy day today, hanging out with some friends and generally mooching around not doing much. Had to have a good think about what to do for my challenge today as I was seriously not in the mood for cleaning or getting really into anything. Then I remembered something I had been meaning to do for ages – mend two strings of beads. They are two of my favourites and yet I haven’t worn either for well over a year because a metal link on each string had come loose.
I have no idea why I left it so long to do this – it took about two minutes to fix them both (accomplished with nothing more sophisticated than the kitchen scissors). I haven’t worn them in so long it is like having something new!
Since I was in a mending frame of mind I also sewed back on a large, flat bead that had come off a top. Feeling fairly virtuous by this point I decided to relax (I swear, this was ten minutes of really hard work) so I flopped back on the sofa with my book and promptly fell asleep…
I spent nothing!
From the challenge-a-day list:
- Making good use of the things I have: mended two strings of beads and a top!
