The curly hair was my downfall and 30 odd years of women stroking it and saying what lovely curly hair led to premature recession . :( xx

As you know Iris money was tight in those days and a few balls of wool went a long way .our throw away generation could do well to learn from that but i doubt they ever will? x

Reply

True Skis, and outgrown or worn out at the elbows jumpers if hand knitted, could be undone and re knitted into something else. Remember well holding a skein of wool as my mother unpicked an old jumper, then the wool was washed to remove the crinkles, and all ready for the next jumper, don't encourage me to bore you with all my old memories!

Reply

Now I am a tad confused, is it a bed, and a table, as well as teeth that you are without? I used to utter a retort about gums at the drop of the proverbial hat, however it is just a little too rude . . . . ;-) Also you must endeavor to live in hope re the lungs . . .

Reply

Worry not dear majji i do in fact have both a bed and a table,correction Scruffy has my bed and table and i am occasionally allowed to use them and if i am good i get to use her teeth sometimes,i won't even enter into the dangerous realm of gums.:)

That is exceptionally good of the lovely Scruffy to allow you the somewhat limited use of her furniture - and more rarely her teeth - what a generous feline she is - very wise of you to avoid the pitfalls of gums - well done!
