I’m afraid I’ve a very scrappy offering of scrappiness this month. First off you may remember last month Lovely Husband made me a lovely greenhouse from old polythene and pieces of scrap wood.
It turns out some of those pieces of scrap wood just happened to be my clothes props that he originally made from scrap wood. But never fear, he made me two more from different pieces of scrap wood.
Why couldn’t he use these for the greenhouse in the first place? I’ve no idea.
As for me…
Because I wear orthotics, I often remove the inner liner from trainers so my feet fit in them. ( I have huge feet, so buying a bigger size is often not an option.) For years now I’ve been saving the liners thinking that they’re made of a fabulous squashy stuff that will be great for a crafting project some day. Although, of course, I have no idea what that might be. I have quite a collection…
I few weeks ago I realised I’ve been wearing my current pair of dog walking trainers for far too long and they were providing zero support for my feet. But ordering a new pair in lock down meant a long wait.
So meantime I refurbished the old ones with one of the old linings – the trainers were so stretched and battered there was now plenty of room for them.
And that, I’m afraid is the sum total of this month’s scrappiness. But I’d love to know if anyone has any suggestions for what to do with the rest of my collection of trainer inner liners.
