It's roughly the half way point and today I show another collection of objects and reveal more of my magpie tendencies...
Hidden away in a corner of our house sits a tall jar. Inside, is something banks are not keen on at all - coins. Nothing major. Mostly coppers. The only exceptions are found money. So there are occasional pound coins in there but they are very rare additions.
And the magpie nature? Well, I have it in my head that rarely a day goes by when I don't find a coin. Even if it's only a penny, I snaffle it, to add to my jar. Plus, I have a mini-ritual. When I pick it up, it goes into the back right hand pocket of the trousers I'm wearing and I pat the pocket once. Every time.
Well, at half time, I'm learning quite a bit so far whilst documenting objects this month. I hadn't realised how much of a magpie/hoarder/collector I was (delete as appropriate). Nor how much of my 'stuff' was free. Nor how many rituals I have. I'm obviously a creature of habit and love to have routine. Who knew?
