What makes us buy things that actually never feel right?
Over the years I have sent much stuff to Oxfam or the women's shelter but the guilt is never far away. How could I possible have bought a purple dress covered in sequins?
How to explain the row of white tee shirts all with one splash of red wine fading with age?
There are somethings I bought that I thought I'd wear out, yet despite the good colour and the good make every time I put them on they come straight off again because they just don't feel right!
There are three clothes shops that suit my body lines..... Thankfully Marks and Spencer is one of the best ones....the other two are in the luxury range!
I am shrinking but not too much and I have lost weight in the last years so some clothes are just too big now.....
I was pondering this knotty problem whilst getting dressed this morning and a poem wrote itself in my head as I did it...Apologies....here it is.
There was an old woman who lived by the sea.
She wore boat shoes and denim
And had cream scones for tea.
She never had haircuts
And wore silver crosses,
Played scrabble and backgammon
And talked to God often
He sometimes replied so
She loved her life dearly
Loved her dog
And her husband.
A potty old woman.
PS I know its not good poetry.....its just the meandering of a senile mind!
