Filed Under (Sunday Scribblings, Writing) by Kathy on 16-09-2007

Today’s writing is for Sunday Scribblings and this is my first attempt so here goes…

Am I a collector?

A collector of words? Absolutely

Of people? Sure

Of things? Yep, way too much quilting fabric or scrapbooking supplies

What is a collector? ‘A person who collects things which are separate’ according to Brainy Quote. Which make me think…are things ever separate or are all things inexplicably linked?

Being the mother of a little one I don’t have much else going on in my life at the moment so I emptied my handbag/nappy bag for research.

It contained the following:

  • Wallet
  • Keys
  • Mobile Phone
  • Hand Cream
  • Spare nappies
  • Nappy and face wipes
  • Mail to be posted
  • Spare change of baby clothes
  • A couple of spare toys for distraction purposes
  • Tissues
  • Sunglasses
  • 2 clean bibs
  • 2 packets of biscuits for snacks

Hmmm, they are all seemingly unrelated items but in my life, they represent my attempt at being organised enough to leave the house at a moments notice.

So I guess that I’m a collector, of all the things in my life that I require to complete my day.
From my day to yours…..Have a great one!

That sounds like my bag, just minus the diapers (yay!).

Fun take on the prompt Kathy.
