Long-lasting kitchenware | Cryptic crossword prize | Choirs and mask-wearing | Frazzled brains | DIY fashion

Re Adrian Chiles’s article (We need to stop buying stuff – and I know just the people to persuade us, 20 October), my Auntie Winnie was given a breadboard when she married, some time before 1910. After she died in 1972, the breadboard, still as good as new, was given to me. I have used it for 49 years, and it looks no different. I am hoping to live long enough for it to bypass a generation and go straight to one of my grandchildren, who are being brought up to own as little as possible that has not been reused or recycled.
