Tity's Tyre Mending

I love this post. No words needed really, save to remark on Tity's use of the word "mending". It's such a odd word to use, such an old fashioned word really. Nobody fixes things these days. It's all discarded and replaced with new.

I don't know, but there is something comforting about someone taking the time and care to mend something, that instils confidence I think, or is it the unintentionally implied innocence?

Perhaps it's just me feeling nostalgic for a previous life.

In Africa (I am ex-Africa....) they MEND everything, waste nothing that we would usually throw without thought and use everything twice/thrice or until it falls apart in exaustion...Tyre mending is therefore not an excuse for second hand wordage, but a comment on socially induced thrift!!!

I miss that side of African life...
