44./ I’m a 32 not a 30. Must be all those pies. Then I thought about it:

I bought some jeans, from Primark, for a fiver, reduced from £8. I was convinced I’m a 30 waist. But low and behold, I’m not.

I went to take them back, sorry, no receipt, no return.

Oh well. I dropped them in to Oxfam shop in Brighouse. Still with all the labels on. That’s my good deed. Giving a pair of brand new jeans to a charity shop. But I feel a bit uncomfortable.

Hmmm can you make a £5 donation to … some charity that supports sweat shop workers? I mean, £8 for some jeans… maybe it’s not ethical to pay so little? I looked into it and found this charity, labourbehindthelabel.org .

And also read this article on their website. Now my conscience is talking.
