I was thinking about the friend I wrote about recently who said “I’ve been holding it together, I don’t know how, but I have.”

Probably because I was also thinking about glue, I made a link in my mind; the link was ‘self-adhesive’.

I’m sure there are other uses too. Times when we could all use a little restoration or repair. And if you know anything about restoration you’ll know that skilful repairs can be almost impossible to detect.

In fact, some restored artefacts are stronger than the original.
