In addition to seeking out a box of my university books, I was also hoping to discover some other treasures. Perhaps that lovely compendium of games I could pass onto my younglings, vintage fairy tale books, some dusty vinyl record sleeves we could laugh at in front of a roaring open fire (if we had one)?
What did I come down with?
Well, in addition to the box of books: a hotbrush, some picnic forks, a first aid and fire extinguisher car kit, a Hamleys toy snake from my Britney Spears I’m a Slave 4 U fancy dress costume and a Mr Hankey the Christmas Poo soft toy from South Park.
I’m not sure that I like what these items say about my life before I had children.
