Today it took me three attempts and 20 minutes to sew a button on a coat! That’s not normal, I know! It was exceptional circumstances, I was standing in the vestibule of a fast moving train surrounded by commuters whilst wearing the darn coat. I’m sure I provided entertainment, or inspired someone somehow, I like […]
