So, the weird story behind the elastic banding. A couple of years ago we ordered a tablet for my dad from Ireland. After waiting two months for it to be delivered (apparently having spent at least a month floating around various departments in Gatwick Airport), the parcel was sent back to Ireland and then back to us, finally.
And when we opened it...
No tablet. Just a whole load of whatever the hell these things are. Twisty rubber banding with a hook on one end.
They're useful -- I've used them in Frank's neck and arm and they're holding a lot of stuff in the workshop in order, but I've really got no idea what they are or what they are supposed to do.
Unfortunately, we're now starting to run low. Thing is, as I have no idea what they are, we can't order more!
