Busting Out

Went out fencing for the first time in a while (I've been fairly busy with other things, cutting in to my Copious Free Time), but I didn't get to fence that much—the zip went on my breeches. Bugger. There's starting to be a running theme here.

In the old days I'd just have carried on with tracksuit bottoms, but of course we're not allowed to any more. On the plus side, the breeches might be repairable (which is good, given how expensive a replacement would be…for some reason I have a preference for the higher safety versions)—even though Kevlar is stab-proof and bullet-proof, you can apparently still get a needle through it. On the minus side, I have a nasty suspicion that a repair would be treating the symptom rather than the cause….
