Hi all, it’s funny how even the smallest things in our lives can remind us of the changes MS has imposed on us.
I was always a lover of jeans. Levis. They had to be Levis. I was always fussy about the fit and the turn-up had to be just so & if I say so myself, I looked good in them.
Well I don’t suppose I’ve worn my Levis for about 3 years. For a start I’ve got so fat that even if I manage to do them up the ‘spare tyre’ over the top is a revolting sight. And then of course they are SO uncomfortable. I can’t bear any waistbands at all now. I live in loose maxi dresses and the few pairs of trousers I wear occasionally have those knitted jersey waistbands.
So today I did something I’ve been meaning to do for ages… I took my 3 lovely pairs of Levis (black, indigo blue and washed out blue) and… NO I couldn’t send them to charity shop. NO I couldn’t sell them on eBay… I put them in a chest along with spare blankets and such like.
It’s created a bit more room in my wardrobe… but it felt sad. Even though I’ve still got them I’m aware that the odds are I’ll NEVER wear them again. The woman who wore those jeans is long gone…
That’s life… and now they’re packed away at least I won’t see them hanging unworn inside the wardrobe.
Onwards with my chin up… There are a zillion worse things in life then packing your jeans away!!!
