In the bottom drawer in her bedroom, Mummy kept secret craft supplies. They might be for presents or to bring out on a rainy day - things like pipe-cleaners, felt, raffia, kapok and Copydex, the only glue that would stick fabric. Sometimes, I had a peek - then I could say, "do you happen to have...?" And Mummy would say, "I just might..." and go and get it.
