How Many Crochet Hooks Are Too Many

Hello all since we bought a bigger cage for my pet birds my craft space is now in my bedroom. My partner notice it alot more now then before. I thought he'll be upset of all my yarn or fabric but no. He got all worked up of how any crochet hooks I had so he counted them and he counted 145 crochet hooks but he did not count the ones I am using on my projects which brings it to 150 crochet hooks and I have more coming from the U.S thanks to ebay. So is that to many crochet hooks and how many do you have.

A quick hello and tell you all I am still alive. Wow what crazy last 8 to 9 weeks first my Grandfather had to go to hospital so had to drive 2 and half hours home. then my budgie had to go the vets who was in there for 6 days. we had to pick up our new car due to some dick thought a red light was a green.  Then my Grandma had a bad fall and broke her hip another 2 and half trip home the my brother and my sister in-law had to leave there little girl with us while the went to a wedding in Perth due to she was not allowed to fly due to chicken pox's. My mum stayed with me for two week while she did a work thing and then I was taken to hospital due to three broken ribs due to a dog in a park was getting his ball and it did not matter who was in the way and fell on the edge of bench seat.  so that was my last few weeks all back to normal I hope thought I'll just check in and say all is well and I am still alive.

Yesterday I received a lovely package from Debi Y from Dly's Hooks and Yarns  her granny square swap and three crochet hooks thanks you so much Debi.

While I was healing I went shopping and bought this fabric I do not know yet what I will make with it but was too cute to not to buy.
