Parting with an Old Friend
This is my dressing gown I had had it for so long I have forgotten how I came by it, the elbows are threadbare and it is so cosy it is chenille and I love it,if I have been away I can't wait for a bubble bath and get into "old faithful"
However not everyone feels the same,my mother nags me about wearing that "old thing",its not very sexy but I don't care.
After lots of pressure I went shopping and bought a new one.It is a soft fluffy thing lilac and white spot and looks so cosy,well it would if I had taken it out of the bag and not placed it up in the top of the cupboard!
More nagging and almost convinced to part with my lovely,I was saved by the bell...as I entered the op shop I saw a lovely chenille dressing gown on the rack...$5 never been worn...a big size so just makes it more comfy.I bought it before anyone else laid their eyes on her, bought her home washed her up and she is ready to wear,when I put the other one out.See it is almost the same colour, the collar a little different but just perfect.
So the lilac spot stays in the top of the cupboard,my old "friend" will be parted with this weekend.She will not be wasted I have a darling friend that loves to make pants out of chenille for her little girl,the back is in good condition and the fronts so I will give her to Melissa to cut up and she will live on.
Am I the only person so attached to a piece of clothing?...I do so hope not!
