My thing, arguably, is that I have too many things — figuratively and literally — and could be accused of hoarding hobbies. I have collections of stamps; beer caps, and beer mats; concert tickets; records/tapes/CD’s (1,500+); DVD’s (a wall’s worth). I love Lego*, and have done for 50 years (all those sets…), and still accumulate Scalextric model car racing pieces. Oh, and football (soccer) cards. And coins. And books (of course!). I play guitar, am an obsessive jigsaw enthusiast (during Winter) and, in the last 4/5 years have discovered gardening, vegetable growing in particular. And then there’s the Fantasy Football (soccer: I have a spreadsheet). In summary, I do not advocate Stephen King’s advice to do (almost) nothing other than writing. Also, materialism is bad: it’s too late for me, but save yourselves.
