Why is it that when you get rid of something you suddenly need it. Photo of the day is simply a red t-shirt but there is a little story behind this.
Before Thomas' room was decorated I gave it a good sorting out but I still needed to go through his clothes.
In the pile I'd sorted for charity I added a red t-shirt, which I thought I'd bought for Comic Relief, although they didn't end up doing anything this year. I dropped it all off at the charity shop on Monday.
Last night he brought home the school newsletter and sports day was mentioned with the add on of "can the children all wear t-shirts in their house colours" which for Thomas is, yes you've guessed it, red. As soon as I read it I remembered why the t-shirt was in the wardrobe. I always buy one at the beginning of the year for sports day and other house events, of which there have been none this year, so it's just been hanging there. Why it never crossed my mind that he would need it for sports day I don't know.
Anyway this morning I went to retrieve it from the charity shop thinking it would still be there but it had already gone along with some of his other things. I know because a couple of his t shirts were still on the rail. I know the manager of the shop well enough to have a few words with now, as I'm always dropping something off and I was toying with the idea of asking her if I could 'borrow' it back for the weekend :)
I ended up having to buy him another one which he will never wear again and which no doubt I'll be dropping off at the YMCA again within days.
All I can say is they better not be rained off on Monday.
So, have you got rid of anything only to discover that even though you've not used it for ages, you suddenly need it?
By the way, I've not bothered ironing the tag down because, as you all know, it will have to be cut out!
