Yesterday, while having a look through everyone's WIPs (thanks for all the comments on mine *grins*), I saw a post on Sarah's lovely blog, Crafts from the Cwtch that caught my eye... A "what's in your handbag" photo.
I decided (despite my handbag's need for a bit of a clearout) that I would join in and take a picture of my stuff too. A little bit of pruning later...
It actually wasn't that bad, but I did need to throw away a lot of receipts and old bus tickets *laughs*
So, what do we have in there...
- Magazine, to keep me entertained on the bus or when waiting for anything (often replaced with a book)
- Beauty implements including Radley handbag mirror, lip stain, mini hairbrush, tinted lipbalm... Not that I ever use any of them (I'm pretty low maintenance) but I like having them there just in case ;)
- Sunglasses and umbrella - the weather has been so interchangeable lately that it seems sensible to keep both on hand!
- Phone and purse, as standard. Plus current bus ticket. And a pen, mum always taught me to keep a pen in my bag.
- A piece of jewellery (black flower shaped ring) that I obviously took off and threw in my bag because it was annoying me ;)
- Packet of sweets (I believe I have mentioned before that I have a terrible sweet tooth!)
- Painkillers thanks to my propensity for killer headaches and migraines.
- The blue string is the lanyard and fob to get me into the office for work.
- The calculator-looking device is the chip & pin identifier thingy (technical I know!) so I can log in to my online banking
- And my house keys. That I check obsessively before leaving the house. Usually 4 or 5 times *laughs*
When I was uploading the photo, I also decided to upload this second one that I took last night. On my way home, I noticed something strange at the very edge of the pavement (or sidewalk for any American readers *smiles*)...
Ignoring the very strange looks I got from people, I crouched down to take a picture. All of those little white blobs are miniature snails. There were hundreds of them, over quite a distance. I walked very carefully from then on, to avoid any accidental crushing! No idea where they came from, and they were gone this morning, but it was quite something to see ;)
