Chairs and other matters

Clothes on Chair

The Freecycling Chair

The chair in my bedroom is covered in clothes. This isn’t the usual situation but almost mid-way through Second hand September, I’m making sure to wear something pre-loved every single day. I’m also trying to vary the outfits, so that each one is different. It’s a mix and match exercise which means that a pair of trousers worn with one top will be paired with a different top the next day, rather than wearing the same old, same old day after day.

I enjoy the challenge but as each piece of clothing waits to be partnered up, the pile on the bedroom chair keeps growing. I’ll have to think of some way of dealing with this, but in the meantime, I’m focusing on promoting “Freecycling for Beginners” as publication day approaches.

In the novel a chair sparks off the story and so it is right that the image on the cover shows a ginger cat asleep on a red chair.

The chair belongs to Jane, who needs to find it a new home. It is taken by Robyn who will use it in her studio when she is painting portraits, but she is attracted to it because it reminds her of her childhood and of a ginger cat she had when life was simpler and easier.

Jane’s chair brings two families together and they are not the only people who find that posting an offer, or a want, on the local freecycling site will change their lives forever.

If you want to know more, the novel is available on Amazon and all other outlets, including e-books.

In the meantime I’m off to have my picture taken to prove that I’m meeting the challenge of creating a new outfit from a mix of new and pre-loved clothes every day of #secondhandseptember.
