No more saving things for 'Sunday best' - I'm writing this in my fancy clothes and make-up
A few months ago, my house was robbed and all of my jewellery was stolen. As I tidied up my ransacked bedroom and shed tears over my lost jewellery, I bemoaned the fact that I'd barely ever worn it. I was always saving my good jewellery for special occasions - and now it was gone.
Now that I knew I'd never see my jewellery again, I deeply regretted not wearing it and enjoying it more. What is it about so many of us that we save everything for 'best'?
My daughter recently wanted to wear her new white runners to the park. I persuaded her not to. "They'll get all muddy and be ruined," I said. She was disappointed; she was excited about them and wanted to wear them.
