For the crazy animal people out there, I totally enjoyed the story from my friend Ms Erin about her crazy cat Chicken. And while I do love all animals (with the exception of one tiny fluffy dog, who shall not be named as relations of the owners do read this blog), cats are not my favourite. Not least because I am terribly allergic to them and as a child we had a cat named Merle, who would sneak into my room at night and INSIST on sleeping on my head, causing me to wake to with red eyes, sneezing and hives. Stupid cats.
Ok, so you know I am and ideas person, right? And I like to commit to a ridiculous amount of things. So I was thinking of having a clothes swapping party as a part of the Party for Strays fundraiser for Lort Smith Animal Hospital. I WOULD have it at home, but I would have to clean (blech), I am hoping more people would come than would fit in my house and I live 60kms out of the city. I was thinking if everyone brought all the clothes they didn't like or didn't fit into any more, paid $5 or $10 (with receipt - tax refundable) to come and possibly bought a plate, we could raise money, all have a play date in-person meet up AND update the wardrobe. WINWINWINWIN Would you come? If we got enough people interested (you come, bring your friends and the like), I could do some research and try and find somewhere bigger... arrange change rooms (champagne). Then also if there were people who couldn't come, they could still donate. Lort Smith do brilliant work.
Let me know if you would like to come (I am thinking on a Saturday afternoon in September) so I can work out numbers and I will get on to it. Good? Good. Also, if it gets big, and it could, let me know if you would be willing to help out in some way. Hurrah!
