100 Object Project: #21 The Baby Sock in my Desk Drawer

I have had this sock in my desk drawer for many years. It belonged to my older daughter, Daisy. I can’t remember the exact set of circumstances that resulted in this baby sock ending up in my desk, but I can imagine. When you’re a mum, you tend to have a lot of random things…

100 Object Project: #20 A Guide to Marrying in St. Helens

This was sent to us not long before we got married by the register office in St Helens (Merseyside, England). It reminds me of that sweet and glorious time, ten years ago, when I was about to make the biggest decision in my whole life (until I had my babies): marrying my wonderful man. We…

100 Objects Project: #18 The ‘Ex’ Sticker

This very tongue in cheek sticker is from a friend around the time I was having a horrible break up. It was a good 12-13 years ago now, but whenever I uncover this, languishing in a folder or a box, it never fails to make me smile. It started off life just stuck on my wall…

100 Objects Project #17: The One Dollar Bill

This $1 note is from my time in America, where I have a few family members there. My paternal grandmothers little sister became a GI bride back in the 50’s.

100 Object Project is Back

Another project I want to try and get back into (my poetry being publishing on here being another I’ve just picked back up again) is my ‘100 Object Project’. The idea is I share with you 100 objects from my life that have a particular meaning. It can be anything from an item of clothing,…

100 Objects Project #16: The University Hoodie

This hoodie, one of several I have from University, is the last Uni hoodie I bought. It is for Katherine Fletcher Halls, room 14, at Edge Hill University, Lancashire (UK). It represents for me the closing chapter of that period of my life, were I was leaving behind full time education, adolescence, childhood, unhappiness, heartache…

100 Objects Project #15: The Remembrance Ring

This ring I had made when it approached the birthday of Lucy and Bryonie, a few years ago. I try and do something constructive to remember them by and one year, this was it. It’s sterling silver and their names stamped in either side of their birthstone (or a close approximation of it, it’s cubic…

100 Objects Project #14: Quirky Dancing Couple Figurine

A mutual mate from Uni, named Kat, bought us this when we got married. Whenever I look at this object, I think of Kat. It is fun and quirky, just like her. Basically, Kat is an entire party trapped inside a person. She is delightful, beautifully crazy and stupidly wonderful and clever. Kat is a…
