I came across my old stamp album, a few days ago!
When I was quite young, stamp collecting was one of my hobbies!
Stanley Gibbons was a permanent feature in my bedroom!! ;-)
I would frequently go to the library and stagger home with him!
(i.e. that famous stamp collecting catalogue) then thumb through in the hope
that I'd found a rare stamp!
And I rather enjoyed this hobby for a few years of my young life.
Oddly, enough,what should I read in the Daily Telegraph , recently?
I think it's quite sad that stamp collecting is on the decline
as I know that through my own stamp collecting,
I certainly became more knowledgable
...and, of course, the history of my own country.
And I loved all those triangular stamps!
I particularly like these...
And then, quite suddenly, my stamp collecting came to a halt!
I think I got to that age where boyfriends got in the way!!
And that was the end of my lickin' and stickin'!! ;-)
I wonder...did any of you ever collect stamps ?
