Turning Over A New Leaf Isn’t Going To Be EasyHolly By Heart
By Holly by Heart
It’s not me that I’m worried about, I can cope with pretty much anything. It’s the little people. They’ve come to expect certain things, like branded hoodies and shoes with flashing lights in. Me? I’m happy wearing my stretch jeans that I bought from a charity shop 10 years ago. It’s lucky that rips are trendy!
It’s not that my kids are fussy, they’re really not, they’d love anything if it’s new to them. The charity shop is their favourite place. But when they can’t have a new Pokemon t-shirt because mummy says Primark isn’t on the allowed list anymore, I don’t think they’ll understand.
I went through their drawers the other day. I think they probably have more clothes than they could actually wear. I don’t even remember buying half of it! Since when did kids need so much stuff? Have I been buying it because it’s only £2 so might as well? Maybe if every t-shirt was £10 then we’d actually appreciate it, look after it and enjoy wearing it. Does something have to be more expensive for it to be valued? Someone had better tell all those fast fashion stores that they’re missing a trick!
