It's in the Bag!



I was set this challenge by Shayne last week & finally got to photograph my bag & it's (many) contents...



My bag is plain white mock-leather with leopard print cotton lining & quite a few pockets & Zips inside so is working very well for me at the moment. Nice & big too. Cost me R100 (USD10) at the bag shop downstairs at La Lucia Mall (don't think I've ever noticed what it's called...) They often have sales in there. I go through bags several times a year, probably 'cos I carry too much!


I always carry my spiral-bound notebook & 3 pens 'cos when I have the kids with me they often need to borrow a pen to play hangman or something if we're having a coffee, etc. I always carry scissors in case kids need threads cut off clothes or something...Little ones' school activity schedule to check where I'm meant to be when, calculator & spare card-reader.

Wallet (bright-pink so I can always find it quickly,LOL!) wet-wipes, tampons,tissues,hair-brush, compact-mirror,nailbrush (for cleaning breakfast stains off kid's white school shirts if necc!), disprin (headache-tablets), lip-ice, cover stick, deoderant, Nazene nasal-spray & sunglasses.

Tape-measure
(to check shirt & trouser lengths if I see anything good for Shane as he's ultra-tall so I'm always on the look out for clothes for him but need to be sure they're long enough). My compact digital camera, Flip video-camera & my white watch that needs a new strap!

And that, let me tell you peeps, is a lot LESS than I used to carry a few years ago...

D'ya reckon I need it all or could end up damaging my shoulder???

Thanks for playing along - great bag! I tried to comment on Sun but blogger wasn't playing along (let's hope he does now!). I wanted to say that it does get better. I think we've all had times where you wonder "why me" and can it get any worse - but it actually gets a whole lot better and before you know it those feelings are history. So hang in there see?

LOL haha my kids are grown and when we take them out for dinner we STILL play hangman when waiting for our order....so I STILL carry three pens. Or we ask for crayons at the restaurant. Some things never change....just the size of the bill!!
