General ramblings, Happy Stuff!

Me. On patching. In the Guardian.


How excited am I?
More excited than a Make Do and Mend addict in a vintage fabric shop, that’s how.

I had an e-mail from a journalist at the Guardian a couple of weeks ago, asking if I would be interested in writing a short piece on patching for them, as part of a Mending series they were planning for the Live Better Challenge.
Errmmmmm, YES!!!! I would certainly be interested.

So…. here it is.

It’s me, in print (kind of, in an online type way).
And I’m excited.
Can you tell..?

    Sorry, off topic, but I just have to share!! Please pass on! I said I will buy 1/2 acre of rainforest for each person who swaps to Ecotricity using my code, and Ecotopia have now said they will give each person who does that £50 of vouchers!
