Has everybody got one of these? Its a magazine stash, well one of them.
The problem is I am a self confessed hoarder. I have pretty much my whole life in boxes from a childhood hankie to my tight black '51 states' grunge jeans! And of course all my childhood toys (well not all, that would be crazy) , and by the way I am gutted that I didn't take more care of my first Sindy.
So now I'm reminiscing back through my life in magazines!!
I'd like to add that these are not all my magazines though I wish I'd kept one or two! They are not all from the correct era, but you get the idea.
I guess it started with the Beano I think, its a long time ago...
Gotta love Desperate Dan
Then there was Bunty, again its a bit of a fuzzy memory.
So now I'm 11 and getting into music!!
Many a day was spent swooning over Morten Harket!!
I used to read Mizz too but I cant quite recollect where it fits, but probably somewhere here.
I still remember cycling home with my first just 17 hidden on the back of my bike, probably because I was only 14 and was a bit too racy for me!
I always thought it was strange how I never read magazines that were my aimed at my age. by the time I was 17 I was reading 19.
Now I'm at college studying art and buying mainly elle and vogue generally for the couture pictures and for inspiration.
Its at this stage I discover heavy metal and clubbing!!
Remember the melody maker...
So now I'm living in London, working and trying to be a lady!! Marie Claire was a staple magazine for quite some time, with all its cultural do gooding!!
By this stage I've been dumped, moved home, met and moved in with my husband, so interior magazines became more of an interest. I even had a subscription to living etc. I really did love this one!
There was a tiny garden with that house, so you know whats next! I cant believe how you grow out of magazines, I haven't bought gw all year. Mainly because they repeat a lot over the years but also because I keep them all for reference.
I don't actually buy amateur gardener often, because I read it for free in the library!
I started buying country living whilst I still lived in the town, I guess I was secretly yearning to escape. You cant take the country out of the girl.
So now I live in the country I don't need the escapism so much, I do still love this magazine but I'm getting itchy feet. I wonder where my magazine choice will take me next??
