Mental Health Awareness Special: 100 Objects Project #22 The Little Stone

I saw an article recently, were people with mental health issues discussed the objects that help them through low periods. These objects were mostly small and innocuous: a row of beads, a tiny wooden ladder, a cuddly toy… Items that act simply as totems, as guides – pulling them back from a place that is… Continue reading Mental Health Awareness Special: 100 Objects Project #22 The Little Stone

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

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

100 Objects Project: #19 The Signed David Duchovny Picture

When I was a teenager, suffice to say, I had a bit of a thing for David Duchovny and the X Files. Seriously, it was epically huge the crush I had on him. I remember one of my English teachers in Year 9 giving me a poster of him that she found in the Radio… Continue reading 100 Objects Project: #19 The Signed David Duchovny Picture

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… Continue reading 100 Objects Project: #18 The ‘Ex’ Sticker

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. Her husband had been stationed at the now completely removed air force base, RAF Burtonwood. She was from Gartons Lane in Clock Face, the daughter… Continue reading 100 Objects Project #17: The One Dollar Bill

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… Continue reading 100 Objects Project #16: The University Hoodie

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… Continue reading 100 Objects Project #15: The Remembrance Ring

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… Continue reading 100 Objects Project #14: Quirky Dancing Couple Figurine
