|Hoard Verb /hôrd/ - Amass (money or valued objects) and hide or store away.|
I have a confession i *looks at flour* hoard.... yes i am a hoarder - A person who hoards things.
What do i hoard in particular?? magazines!! Manyt thanks i must say to my father who typically had a shop with lots and i mean lots of magazines in it, which was fine back then smatch hits was only 70p, but by the time i was working i had moved on to the like of Vogue or Elle, which was around £3.70 a pop.
For me hoarding actually means not throwing it away, something my husband has found hard to deal with, he can't understand why i would want to keep them after reading them. and i was under the impression that it would stop after marriage and children, but turns out old habits die hard, I'm now on to parenting mags :)
really there is a little of it in us all, take my mum she had been storing, material and kitchen wear since i was born for my "wedding" ....
what do you hoard? and anyone's elses mum storing things?
