What do we mean when we talk about repair The most commonly repaired items at home are wooden furniture and table lamps and other small lights, but many people express a level of discomfort for lack of knowledge about the skills required to repair them. However, we live in a time when many of the objects we buy come with limited lifespans(寿命) —especially technological and electrical goods.
Although some objects may require specialist aid, plenty of worn things around the home can be repaired there, if you know what you’re doing. “One hundred years ago, everyone needed to repair things themselves,” an expert says. “So many people had the skills, and they were passed down from generation to generation. And not only the skills, but also the tools. The tools almost became the memories of that repair and carried their own stories.”
Repair often feels pleasant because it is a moment of fixing. The holes can be filled. The gaps will be smoothed over. The language of repair has great significance in describing things: mending, fixing, restoring, rebuilding, piecing together. All are words we use for the objects around us, but also ones we apply to ourselves. We feel a little happy in the idea that few things are truly beyond salvage.
Repair is attractive for many reasons. It helps us think about how to care for the things we own. It makes us mindful of what we waste, and what we should hold on to. It reminds us to bend in closer and see the changes, the points where the needle went through the surface and pulled together something new.;

With fast fashion being more popular than ever, cloth mending isn’t nearly as necessary as it once was. Got a tear in one of your socks Just throw it and get a new pair. The same goes for any other clothes, so cloth mending is slowly gone. But what about something truly special and dear to your hearts You can’t just go out and change something of feeling value, but you can’t wear it with a hole in it either. That’s where the magical art of kaketsugi comes in. It’s really an unbelievable technique(技术).
Kaketsugi is a hard process that begins with cutting a small piece of cloth from inside the clothing, where its absence will not be noticed. This piece is then brushed with acetone, which makes cutting single threads(线) a bit easier.
Cutting the piece of cloth down to single threads is probably the hardest part of kaketsugi, but people who are good at this skill say that using the same cloth as the one that the clothing is made of is key to making the mending truly unseen in the end. The newly-gotten threads are then carefully sewn(缝) over the hole or broken area of the clothing, from different directions, and from both sides of the cloth. Once the sewing process is complete, the leftover threads are used to mask the breakdown even more. Finally, the area repaired with kaketsugi is ironed out(熨平). That helps smooth everything out and at this point, it’s almost impossible to see where the hole was in the first place. The clothing looks fire-new.
Interestingly, unseen mending works just as well on small holes of just a few millimeters, as it does on large ones of over 3 centimeters. It’s just that a large broken area will take more time to fix, so the larger the hole is, the more expensive the repairs are.
Kaketsugi may seem expensive, but keep in mind that it is usually kept for special clothing with feeling or historical value. Also, the work and time that goes into it is certainly worth it.;

42. Last week, our class were making every effort to apply for Advanced Class of Hefei. As the monitor, I was determined to do my part.
What I was expected to do is aid Mr. Li to create an illustrated brochure making our class known to all the judges. To finish it, I divided the whole class into 2 teams. Team One were engaged in paperwork and collecting certificates and awards from each student while Team Two were to compose the materials to make them into one book. My efforts paid off and our class earned the distinction ultimately.
I learned from this experience that where there is a will, there is a way and that where there is a team, there is a triumph(胜利).
