Do I need to go on a diet?

Of course I do.........I broke my favourite sewing chair a few months ago.
The foot just snapped off in full quilt......yikes, how do I fix this?
I think a new chair is in order
Today the bloke was fiddling in his shed, like most wives I ignored him, glad that he was amusing himself quietly.
Look what he emerged with. My beautiful orange chair, with all five wheely feet firmly attached. Sure one foot has a titanium ankle and a swaddling of silicon (so I don't cut myself) but it works fine and goes so much faster now the threads and lint have been cleaned out too.
Gotta love the bloke.

It's amazing how the threads "bond" together and go on missions to irritate your life. This usually happens to the stupid vacuum.

I CANNOT imagine where those threads came from!! it must be them that weakened the chair and so caused it to break!! well done hubby.. gotta love a "fixa"

That bloke is a keeper! I love when something can be fixed rather than tossed.
