My friend Sabine wanted me to meet her up town many years ago, before anyone had a mobile phone. She asked me to meet her at the bottom of the stairs in an upmarket shop she often shopped at, for her Parents were wealthy. When I arrived at the bottom of the grand stairs, a shop assistant came up to me and asked if I was Grace, I replied, “Yes” she said, “Sabine has asked me to give you a message, to say she is running late she will be with you within the hour.” I thanked her and wondered how she knew it was me, for it is a busy store.
When Sabine arrived a short time later, I asked her how the shop assistant know I was Grace, she said, “I told her you would be wearing a green beret with a badge on the front, a sweat top, black leather jacket, jeans and burgundy slip on pointed ankle suede boots”
And that is exactly what I was wearing!
Another time I had recently started my new job, it was Summer and soon after I had started, there was a small group photo, with just the six of us in the group. I had my favourite, bottle green quite long dress and a cream lightweight scarf around my neck and Jesus sandals. I then went on holiday and on my return to work they showed me, two weeks later, the photo and I was wearing the same clothes and sandals that day!
I clearly love to wash and wear!
