Handbags and Sunshine

Tag, I’m it! The very funny Hot Crossed Mum has tagged me to reveal the contents of my handbag and this my friends  is how it looks.  (She has also passed along the Sunshine Award for which I'm beamingly happy also :)
So I took it all out and put it on my desk. My immediate thought was this is gunna be messy. I was very surprised to find it wasn’t too bad. The bag fairies must have visited during the night and cleaned it out for me because despite some sandpit sand down the bottom (who knows how that got there) it was pretty okay today!

1. Colorado Purse. I’m a small purse kinda gal. Hate big purses – because the bigger they are the more change fits in them and the heavier they get!

2. Keys to Bessy Blue Car and the back door.

3. Phone. Yes, I also like phones that basically just make phone calls. No GPS, Facebook or Ipod on this baby.

4. Torch. Bought it on impulse at the hardware store one day. It’s a great little LCD torch. Magic for when you go out with your girlfriends at night and the Daddy of the house forgets to put the back light on for you before he goes to bed.

5. Emergency Kids Food

6. Emergency Kids Food (hope they haven’t been there too long!!)

7. Three pens. I seem to collect pens in my bag. I have a bit of a stationery fetish!!!

8. Bank pay in book for the business

9. Handful of old receipts and shopping lists. (Very important to keep these for extended periods of time I find.)

10. More emergency kids food

11. Emergency packet of wipes.....for finger and bottoms :)

If the contents of your bag reveals your personality I must be one dull little daisy!  Nevermind - I'll put it on my 'To Do List' - get more inspiration handbag contents.     Now to pass the honour to some of my favorite bloggie friends and have a little snoop in their bags.......
