Make Do And Mend

My mother won't throw anything away if it can be salvaged- I guess it has to do with having lived through the war- and her cupboards are full of cups and glasses that have been glued back together after suffering mishap. Yesterday an already mended teapot lid flew out of my hands and broke into several more pieces than it had done before. If we'd have been at home I'd have put the shards in the bin; probably followed by the pot itself; since I'm here I went and fetched the araldite.
