Though it looks innocent, my handbag is an explosive device! Every time I put it down, its contents seems to self-eject and spread themselves in an approx 1 m radius from the bag. It even puzzles my 5-year-old, who the other day asked me with awe how I get my bag to explode…
I have tried everything: small bags and huge bags — but between wallet, phone, chapstick, lipstick, note pads, headphones, the book that should be read, the hat in case it rains, tissues (which have normally fallen out of their sleeve), cheap plastic toys, USB sticks, hair bands, stamped and ready to send letters, old bits of chewing gum wrapped in a receipt, random bills and even more random foreign change…. I have the feeling that my handbag is winning the battle of control over its content – not me. What about you, do you manage to take control of your bag?
The handbag in the photo is (obviously) not mine but my current dream bag, the Mulberry Alexa.
