Nigglies steal energy. Taking care of one rewards you with a supreme sense of satisfaction and a new sense of optimism. In my recent whirlwind of spring cleaning, I kept a pair of my favorite slacks, despite the fact that they'd been missing a button for at least three years now. On my walk to Fotografiska today, I passed by one of my favorite clothing stores (Gudrun Sjödén) where I bought the slacks a number of years ago.
|Gudrun Sjödén on Götgatan. There are other locations in Stockholm. Check them out.|
I decided to go in on the off chance that they would be willing to sell me (dared I hope give me?) an extra button.
|Sarah and the button box.|
Wonderful Sarah brought out the button box from the back and let me rifle through it. "Of course, we'll give it to you," she said, "if we have one left."
It looked hopeless for a while
|Buttons galore...but is the one I need in there somewhere?|
but then way down at the bottom of the box, I spotted it!
Home again a few hours later, out came the sewing kit
and on went the button.
I know that every time I put on these slacks, I will revisit this sense of satisfaction with a smile on my face.
One niggly down, the rest to go.
