Welcome to a new week, lovely people 🌸🌼🎀🌐
Are you a collector? I wager you probably are. According to a 2012 UK study, up to one-third of us collects something. There are different theories as to why we do this, including one that says men collect in order to attract women by proving they’re capable of acquiring things (a boyfriend once showed me his collection of ‘favourite wires’. Wires are the bane of my life. We are no longer together). As you may already know from my previous posts, I collect quite a few things myself, including blankets, pretty @penguinclassics and old wooden cotton reels (and, as a result, I’m also great at collecting dust). The upside of going to a car boot sale like yesterday’s is that whatever your collecting penchant, you’ll generally find a much-desired addition to it. The downside is the temptation to start collecting a new object that hadn’t even crossed your radar before (old NHS specs, anyone?). It’s ok, I have enough willpower to leave well alone…for now 😁 Have a great day and see you on the other side.
