In honour of boxing day I am going to write about an old box I used to have.
This box was my ‘shiny box.’
It was basically a cardboard box which I had stuck a lot of tin foil to. And in it I started to collect anything that was shiny or glittery.
I was a magpie for pins, milk bottle tops and old, probably dangerous, bits of metal I found on the beach.
Any meal time which involved metal cutlery was a winner in my book.
This is how I found myself with an ever growing collection of dead beetles and flies in one corner.
Something about the way they shined made me want to know what they tasted like.
I was small and it was seen as harmless, if not a bit weird.
Though it would have been TOTALLY worth it.
