I’m a really nosey person. I usually manage to restrain myself and not rifle through other people’s belongings. This is why I love these ‘what’s in my bag’ posts that appear occasionally on blogs. I get to peek about in people’s bags, with their permission! How great is that? So if you’re like me, and love to look at other people’s things, here’s what’s in my handbag.
I add and subtract things from it every day, so this is what I had in my handbag on Monday 23rd January 2012. Here we have: a wallet (which I received as part of a secret Santa present from this lovely lady), some loose change that clearly did not make it into the aforementioned wallet, a mirror with a picture of Medusa on it (bought from the Uffizi gallery gift shop and possibly my favourite thing in the world), a copy of The Behaviour of Moths by Poppy Adams, three lip balms, a stray necklace, a variety of receipts, train tickets, my peculiar bright pink Chinese phone, a leaflet for Durham Book Fair, Tesco clubcard, Moleskine diary, and a biro. I used to carry some food and a drink in my handbag at all times (because I am a child) but lately I keep them in the car instead.
Isn’t this just the classiest what’s in my bag post that you’ve ever seen? Loose change and charity shop receipts are just as much a part of life as fancy phones and pretty trinkets.
