I'll tell you why I'm asking, just had row with Daughter, (yeah, another one), about how much stuff I have. She would like to have a 'minimalist' home, nothing on show, everything tidied away.
However, I like collecting things, little bits & pieces from places I've been, things the kids have done years ago at school, that sort of thing.
Now, to daughter, this is hoarding and she wants to clear it all out. She says that memories don't need 'stuff' to be remembered. (Would just like to say that there aren't boxes & boxes around the house!)
She doesn't understand how I like and feel the need to have my bits and pieces around me. It's nice to delve into these memories by having them around, like ornaments or photoes.
As I am having a bad fog day, I am beginning to think that she is right, that I am showing signs of alzhiemers. Am I wrong to keep 'stuff', is Daughter right?
Please put my mind at ease. It's been a Long day & I am sure I am just overtired and worrying over nothing. Many thanks, Julie xxx
