This is the only reminder I have of my mother-in-law. She, just as my marriage, expired years ago; her other gifts (ruby and gold jewelery, bespoke cornflower-blue handbag) przeminęłi z wiatrem. The “mending mushroom”, as we call it is much used, as you can see – and I do know how to and continue using it.
Do you know what it is for? What’s it called in English?
Later: and nobody asked what happened to the ruby&gold jewels. Either you guys all know what or are too damn tactful!
