Weekend Writing Prompt #127 – Replace

Thanks to Sammi for our weekend prompt

Practicality depicts that we don’t replace anything until it either falls apart or is beyond economic repair. Clothes and shoes come in the first category, so unlike when I was working, you won’t see me in a different skirt and top every day. I haven’t worn a skirt since 2007, and own one frock which I bought for a wedding over two years ago and haven’t worn since. Hubby is good at fixing things and if it can’t be fixed, the good bits are stripped out and recycled somehow.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Very practical. That’s how we should be. Treating the resources with respect.

  2. I like your thinking. If only everyone didn’t have a disposable mentality.

    This was so good! My husband was a master at fixing things, even while being a good purchase of other stuff..
    I’m a wear-until-it-falls-off kinda gal myself.

  4. Thanks for the prompt. My mind has been out to lunch most of the time.

  5. Dear Di,

    I have clothes I still love and wear that are older than my kids. 😉 Love and agree with your 89 words.
