Tracey Moberly has kept every text she has received since 1999 and is about to publishing her collection of almost 100,000 messages in a book entitled, “Text me up!”.
“It’s like keeping a diary. All my friends say they wish they had kept important texts or ones which meant a lot to them.
“I’m lucky, I can go back to reading those messages any time I want.”
The messages, some of which are from celebrity pals such as Banksy and Pete Doherty, record a great deal of things, from the breakdown of her marriage to her friends’ reactions to world events, including 9/11.
