“I’ve got underpants older than you,” a former manager of mine used to write in almost every one of his team members’ birthday cards. Ho ho ho. LOL. (Look up the term “hack topics.”)
Today I have had a cathartic experience, very refreshing. I looked through my clothes draws and decided to throw out any clothes I haven’t worn for over two years, as per advice in a life coaching book I once read.
Among the clothes I threw out were two Norwegians, army tops, very cosy, well-liked by ex-HM Forces people.
Those two items were nearly 22 years old. I even remember where I bought each one:
- Anchor Supplies, a big army surplus shop in Nottingham http://www.anchorsupplies.com/
- The PRI shop, Queen Elizabeth Barracks, Strensall, York
And both items are still in good condition, not even slightly threadbare.
Strange how some things always bring back memories.
Have a cathartic day, won’t you!
