Many of my blog posts in recent weeks have been a little serious.
To lighten things up a bit, I am going to participate in this little quiz that Daughter of the Stars passed on to me.
Here is my handbag.
My Mum gave this to me on the day I received an award at work last year. It’s by Olga Berg. I love it, especially the different patterned panels on the front.
I am a bit sad because the straps are getting worn, and that disappoints me because it’s not that old. I think I will buy some leather off cuts and ask someone to make me some strap covers?
Anyhow, this is what is in my bag. Initially I thought it is a bit creepy to post this on my blog, and may attract crime. But then I realised just how much I share here – and none of that has attracted anything negative.
I like how what’s in my bag holds some memories for me.
Lucas paw-paw ointment – I use this for my lips and also for my hands.
Packet of tissues – I am constantly wiping my eyes.
Leather key case with keys attached. I have a spare set but they are currently in my door.
Bloom make-up case – this was given to me from a friend at work who got it as a gift with purchase. I keep hand sanitiser, comb, perfume, mirror etc in it.
Envirosac bag – I bought this at the Salamanca Markets in Hobart, Tasmania. I like how compact it is and how when I go shopping, I will always have a bag.
Sennheiser headphones – these are the best! They have pleather ear-pads which are wipeable, and they fold compactly like a pair of sunglasses. And they have a great sound.
Moxie tin – filled with cough lollies, panadol, zyrtec, eyedrops.
Notebook – given to me by a friend at work for Kris Kringle in 2008. Sometimes I just have to write down ideas for poems. Not so much now I have my iPhone – I text ideas into it.
Pens – I have two in case one runs out.
Baby brush – this is to brush the skin from my clothes, especially when I wear black.
Purse – this was a Christmas gift from my friend Kristy. I love it – it’s very pretty and leather and I adore the smell. I have a bigger purse which keeps everything much more organised – I think I should save this little purse for best.
Envelope purse carrying my iPod – I love this envelope purse I got at Dangerfield. It is so cute. The back of it has With Love written on it. I love my iPod too, though it gets listened to more on the dock at home, rather than on the move because my train trip to work is quite short.
iPhone – it has a purple cover. I don’t really like having an iPhone. Mine is not very good at making calls. There’s something wrong with the microphone. I like the apps on it – especially the train timetable, Facebook and email, and of course the notes function. It does everything but make calls.
Vaseline – this is pretty much what keeps me alive and looking youthful.
Something that is not in my bag but should be is my work building pass. I hope I’m not running around frantically looking for it tomorrow before work!
I pass the quiz onto
