Had one of those moments today where I had to see the funny side.. I was trying to put a furry collar back on a coat that I had washed when I met my arch nemesis buttons!!
I desperately tried to do the slippery little suckers into their elastic loops but without success.
I looked around for help and saw a biro on the table,the pen was too big to hold the elastic hoops open but the lid worked brilliantly and was able to loop the buttons shut.
The joys of arthritis and Fibro....
