Ever suddenly realised that you’ve started to amass a collection of something — without even noticing that you’re doing it?
I definitely had this happen with Breton tops.
Every time I went shopping for clothes I’d make a beeline for anything stripy and, as a result, built up a crazy collection of striped long-sleeved tops in every colour.
Now I’m *slightly* embarrassed to admit that I have a whole drawer full of them.
Oops. Seems I may have gone slightly overboard; I have a collection to rival Boden.
But it seems that stripes aren’t my only obsession.
Move over Breton — there’s a new craze in town.
Over recent weeks, I am seeing stars wherever I look.
Our house appears to be full of them.
Ornaments, home-furnishings, on my clothes, shoes and jewellery.
I’ve always been a fan of all things astronomical — one of my son’s names means ‘of the universe’ whilst the other’s middle name is Orion.
Definitely a stellar influence there.
But recently, everything I gravitate towards to seems to have a celestial slant; from the shoes on my feet to the pendant around my neck.
I can’t believe that — similar to the Breton fixation — I hadn’t really noticed how much my starry addiction had got out of hand.
It was only when I bought a second star spangled jumper a couple of weeks’ ago — and Mr D commented:
‘Haven’t you already got a star jumper like that?’
They definitely resemble each other a little.
*shuffles feet and averts eyes*
So here we go again folks — my newest shopping compulsion. It seems that stars are taking over.
Do you have a ‘favourite’ thing that you seem to buy on repeat? Please let me know that I’m not the only one!!
