Random update

I'm not used to shopping for a whole week at a time so we keep nearly running out of milk. Yesterday none of the milk in the Co-op had a long enough life to last until my next weekly shop.

I did the phone chat and crossword with my elderly friend M again this morning. We make a good team. M knew the word "etui" for a needle case. I'd never heard of it before, despite having had a mother who sewed a lot.

etui a small ornamental case for holding needles, cosmetics, and other articles.
"exquisite etui cases fitted with scissors, bodkin, and thimble"
