Today I received a lovely new change bag. Fab, as it means I can start filling a new bag. the joy of getting lovely new baby wipes, nappies etc etc to fill my new bag is something that only mummy’s an appreciate. Having said that, I do have a number of old bags, each holds a unique collection of artifacts fossilised to represent my state of mind, lifestyle and the demands placed on it at the time. Interestingly http://morethanjustamother.blogspot.com/ talks about the contents of her change bag, raisins seem to feature prominently.
So what is in my bags? In brief we have:
The work rucksack: keys, bits of tissue, random post it notes, a half finished novel, a stale packet of crisps (crushed), several old Biro’s and a rubber
The Mui-Mui going out handbag; old tissues, stale bottle of water, some fruit pastel sweets floating about, a lipstick, compact mirror
The ‘Ive got kids but I don’t want to use a change bag’ Nica bag; bottle of water, lipstick, nappy (unused) antibacterial spray, packet of free pencils from Pizza Express, tissues , some used, bits of fluff, crushed cereal bar, a baby spoon
The Radley handbag I used for my wedding; lipstick, bits of confetti, a flower button-hole (a bit manky now)
The Head gym bag; towel, swimming goggles (I wondered where they went), sunglasses, contact lenses…
To avoid reader boredom I won’t reveal the contents of any more bags ,suffice to say there is also change bag numbers one, two and three (a free Pampers, free Huggies and a Kate Spade), summer Liberty print handbag, small black Radley handbag, random black bag from Dune, free Red magazine shopper and about 10 other ones.
Time for a major bag spring clean, just think of the lipstick I’m going to recover…
