The year before last when working at the doctor's surgery I, along with my colleagues, received a Christmas time thank you of a £100 high street vouchers gift card.
Can you believe it took me until this January to spend any of it.
My first purchase was a new electric toothbrush, not exactly exciting but something I needed to replace.
Then whilst in town on Monday, with some all important time to myself to peruse, I made a beeline for the underwear department in M&S.
It was bra time bliss!
Being able to amble around the displays and look at what was on offer, make up my mind and then go and try them on.
Let's face it something so basic needs to fit exactly right and be as comfy as can be. I made my selection and used my gift card to pay, silently thanking my previous employers as I did so.
Once home I sorted out through my underwear drawer and found that one of S's first bras had somehow got itself mixed up in with mine. It's no good for her now and so I packaged it up to be sent to a very worth while charity Smalls For All.
As their website says they accept donations of gently worn bras which are then sent to Africa and distributed to women for whom having such underwear is a luxury. I have posted the address details as maybe next time any who reads this is having a sort out they may have something suitable to send which could be of use to a woman elsewhere in the in the world.
