The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

You old bag!


Fix that zip bag. Success and failure.

I have a great messenger zip bag. I really like it. It’s a curiosity.


It has a strip of Velcro to close it but the hook side is on the flap and the catch side is on the bag.

Over time the hooks have snagged the threads on the zips and this has lead to a hole.

A few years ago I probably would’ve ditched this bag. But things are different now.

So today I decided to fix it.






Then I decided to tackle this ink stain with surgical spirit.

Oh dear!

Looks like my neat sewing hasn’t solved my bag problems yet!

    If you moved to LV, you’d make a killing – pretty much everything falls apart!
