Those that know me best will probably say I am more than "a little" odd.
But despite the obvious oddnesses I enjoy...like always having to hang out the washing with a specific sequence of blue, pink and then white pegs and having to blow on the top of every soft drink can before I open it (certifiable I know)...there is another...more secret oddness I harbour.
I am a huge fan of the magazine subscription....I have been trying to cut back on this addiction. In fact having cut out my Home Beautiful subscription and my Country Home Ideas Subscription...I suspect I am doing quite well in controlling my vice. Until I realised that the buying of the magazines is not really where my problem lies.
You see every time I get a new magazine in the mail...and don't we all love magazine mail day....I feel the need to "save" it. This means I have to fight back the immediate urge to rip that plastic open and consume the contents. I tell myself to wait...it will be more enjoyable if I save it for a "special" time?? What constitutes a "special" time I haven't the foggiest idea.
Anyhoo, the lunacy of this notion hit me today.....when I thought I would reward myself with the opening of a new magazine and found the alarming evidence of my utter insanity......
I have unopened copies of my favourite magazines dating back to the Halloween Issues in October 2012.
If anyone can beat me in the cuckoo crazy stakes...I'd love to hear it!!
