My mum is finally redoing the front bedroom and brought over a bag of my stuff that's been there for almost 20 years. So I spent a couple of hours lost in the past going through it all.
There were letters from friends I still know and some I lost touch with long ago all concerned with stuff that was so all-encompassing then but seems somewhat shallow and meaningless now. There were photos, a few records and lots of bits and bobs that I hung onto for a whole plethora of significant at the time reasons. There were fanzines from the 80s and a really old copy of Viz. My favourite find though was the zippo lighter that I thought I'd lost a lifetime ago.
Feels like finding an old friend.
