My awful confession.
It’s the last post. I’m on Z. Today I have a confession to make and I am so so ashamed!
My French Grandmother, who has the last stages of vascular Dementia lived in a different time to me.
Many years ago , my late Grandpa, bought a gift for my Grandma. I think she had the coat made for her in Vienna.
It is no ordinary coat.
It has her initials engraved on the inside and I’m quite sure I’ve seen Kate Moss wear something similar.
In my twenties, my Grandma decided to give me this coat as a birthday present. It didn’t fit her any longer.
I was an ignorant person at that time and wore it with pride. It kept out the cold and it was soft and beautiful.
I own a lynx fur coat.
Now before you go
“burn it ,Daisy , burn it. Sell it or whatever.. Just get rid, girlfriend cos if you don’t. See this? you and me? we are done. And I mean done .”
You must understand that this is something sentimental that my grandma gave me before she got ill.
I live with this secret. NOT ANY MORE!
I don’t wear it.
I feel like a hypocrite.
My Mom won’t keep it.
She doesn’t want me to get rid of it while my grandma is still alive.
So this is my shameful secret.
Yesterday I looked at it and I put it on and I felt like Hannibal.
Images popped up of what happened to this animal so many decades ago.
I guess how I am going to end this post is like this.
It’s not easy or even affordable to just switch over your whole life style to not eating or wearing anything that hasn’t had an animal involved in the process in some way.
In all honesty.
I frittered my wedding money away a couple of years ago to try my hand working for a non animal tested and environmental friendly business that sold everything from make up to house hold products – to clothes.
I even stopped eating sweets because I knew that they had gelatin in them, and that derives from animal fat.
Anyone want motivation for going on a diet? You have one 🙂
We can’t get it right all the time. Not yet.
We can all become that little bit more aware about where our consumables come from, who suffers , power yourself up with knowledge as shocking and awful as it is.
