I have a secret.
Err, had a secret.
Something even LOML didn’t know.
It felt so so good to tell him, and now it is time to come clean and share with you too. The reason I have the courage to do this, is because of a particular post on a particular blog. I thought this was a gorgeous blog already anyway, but now I’m well and truly smitten.
You see, I have a thing for ampersands.
There, I’ve confessed.
You know, the ‘and’ sign. &. Sigh.

I knew it was strange to have a slight obsession with a character on a keyboard, but there’s just something about it that got me hooked.
And then, one day while perusing the posts of the aforementioned blog, I came across this. I was in obsession heaven! And it warmed my heart when I realised I was not the only one out there with a thing for ampersands.
such a the only weirdo after all!
Upon realising that there were so so many other ampersand freaks out there (just look at all the comments on that post), I started looking for others with a similar theme.
These are just two of the many, many ampersand-dedicated pages, sites and blogs out there:
A whole blog dedicated to ampersands – one a day for a year!
I was so relieved to see that I was not the only symbol sicko out there, that I finally had the guts to out myself to my husband. Thankfully, he accepts me for who I am, obsessions and all.
&&&& And now that LOML knows, I can start collecting ampersands in all shapes, forms, sizes and materials! &&&&
