George’s favourite wooly hat was mauled by a dog. His head wasn’t in it at the time thankfully. In true frugal fashion I darned the hole after teasingly asking if he wanted a Fulham Football Club badge sewn over it. I now suspect he may be giving this idea serious consideration and if you are dearest I’m sure you’d like the privilege of sewing it on yourself? Here’s some advice if you’re not sure where to start and I know your Dad has darned a sock or twenty in his time so you can compare notes. On second thoughts I’d happily do it for you – I don’t fancy trading it for any of your blue jobs!
