Having been inspired by the Repair Cafe I ran yesterday at work I decided to tackle the rotary dryer in our garden. The wires are loose and when I folded it the other day everything became tangled up. So I very painstakingly unscrewed the arms and, rather like the reverse of doing a cat’s cradle, I untangled the wires. At one point I had considered getting rid of the thing, but once it was fixed I felt a great sense of satisfaction that I’d saved one more thing from landfill.
And my husband also mended the solar fairy lights which he had tripped over last weekend and broken!
Our Repair Cafe had a slightly smaller attendance yesterday (it clashed with the town’s Summer Fete) but the electrician and handyman were still busy with repairs made to -among other things – a paper shredder, hoover, air conditioning unit and a puppet!
