Woman keeps 100,000 texts

A British woman has kept every text message she's received in 12 years - except one.

I'm lucky. I can go back to reading those messages any time I want.

Tracey Moberly from Shoreditch, London, has nearly 100,000 texts - minus the first one she ever got in 1999 after accidentally deleting it - and even writes some down on paper if her inbox is full.

She told The Sun newspaper: "Some people think I'm obsessive, but I love looking back at old messages.

"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 42-year-old artist - who has had six mobile phones and 30 journals - is now planning to publish her messages in a book.
