You could say that we are a family of collectors. I collect so much in fact that we are running out of room to store everything.
I have collections from Wool to Cameras! I crochet, that is my excuse for having around 8 bags of wool stashed under the stairs. My husband despairs of me, but he to is a collector. He has collections of books, records, cd’s and DVDs.
This may explain some of my eleven year olds tendencies to hoard. Where as our collections are kept neat and tidy and put away, my daughter hoards, in a way that suggests with her autism that she has attachments to objects most of us wouldn’t attach ourselves to, like paper and things you or I would throw away.
In my collection of things I have lots of photo albums old and new. Some are family albums from my mother in law who sadly passed away recently, ranging up to the most recent photos of my children. I think in the age of the computer people tend to forget to print out photos and just have them saved onto their computers. I like to print them, put them in an album, feel them as I’m sat looking at them, pointing out all the different people and things to the children.
Photographs are so important and no good to anyone locked away on the computer.
