I made the decision on the spur of the moment.
(And knew there'd be a blog post in it.)
Next Wednesday is our 10th wedding anniversary
and I have decided to donate my wedding dress to the charity shop.
It's been in a rather lovely box for almost 10 years.
Either on top of a wardrobe or taking up valuable space
in the bottom of a wardrobe.
I unpacked it to check on its condition (and to photograph it one
last time). There's a few yellow spots on the skirt, which I hope will
come out with dry cleaning. (I did pack it away clean.)
And let's be honest, there's no way I'm going to be able to fit in it.
Not after having produced a baby the wrong side of 9lbs,
months years of the evening grazing diet.
So I wrote a note on a decent quality notelet
(and I've just spotted a grammatical error ...)
and tied it to one of the hanger ribbons (or whatever their proper name is).
If you fancy a look in person, it will be in
Mary's Living and Giving charity shop in W5.
