Well this past week I've been loaded with cold and generally feeling under the weather. I have not been able to make much as I have been literally sneezing and coughing all over everything. I need to make more crochet squares for the blanket swap but I don't want to send squares filled with germs so that has been on hold this week.
On Friday I was looking for my phone in my handbag and it took me ages so I bit the bullet and tidied my handbag out!
Wow, it was so bad I thought I would document it in an effort not to let it get in that state again.
I like to be prepared and I carry loads of crap around with me all day every day (no wonder I have a bad back!) but this is just insane!
The contents of my handbag on Friday...
Medication for most known illnesses, I am not a hypochondriac honest!
makeup bag, camera, purse and usb sticks
diary, notebook, numerous receipts and 4 letters from the taxman (boo hiss!) I need to call them about.
hairspray, deodorant, perfume, two hand creams, two anti bacterial hand wash bottles, two lip balms and two lip glosses
A coffee cosy, a strawberry bag, a sewing kit and a pack of mini pegs (WTF!)
Business cards, 4 pens, a set of post it notes, numerous loyalty cards and a scale rule
orange raisins, a chocolate bar from Christmas, a complementary chocolate from the takeaway, 5 open packets of chewing gum and three loose midget gems!
eight nail files, a comb, two hair bobbles and a clip
a brolly, leather gloves, my beloved iphone and headphones, 3p and a broken bracelet (now fixed!)
three open packets of tissues, some wet wipes and a cotton hankerchief
Believe it or not this is is all rationalised and tidy!
I just can't let it get in that state again and I need to remember one of everything is fine, honestly!
In other news I have been tempted into the world of Kindles! Since I have been crafting these last couple of years my reading had dried up. I just looked at time reading as time away from crafting, but since I have been unable to make much I have found myself reading more and more. Two of my friends have been tempting me into the world of kindles and I rather quickly gave in and bought myself one (thanks Judith & Beki!).
I LOVE IT!

Besides it's technical qualities and the fact that I can take thousands of books with me anywhere, I get the chance to look into suitable kindle covers I can make!
Well, if nothing else it's something else to cart around in my massive bag with me every day! :0)
