The yet unseen but beautiful-souled Naija Mum in London tagged me in this meme. I am torn between hugging her and pinching her blue for making me up-end my bag's content.The good news is I found a two pound coin during the spring cleaning. The bad - I found mouldy crumbly bits of weeks old chocolate...i kid.
Bag lady - 'a homeless woman who carries all her possessions with her in shopping bags'
I am not homeless... but I do believe in preparing for unforseen exigencies - hence the reason for the big bag. It was a gift from my Sister over a year ago. I finally put it to good use this year.
Pile of textbooks - My days of lugging these heavy textbooks will soon be over. but for today, they shall have their 15 mins of fame. msheew.
Umbrella – For the unpredictable British weather..
Bus Schedule- I always have some transport schedule or map with me. don’t ask me why!!
Pens – I go out with 3 pens in the morning. At the end of the day, sometimes I come back with none. Sometimes I come back with 7. Yay!!
My School ID pouch – takes care of other cards too – debit card, Tesco club card, railcard, oyster card (for that trip to good ole London).
My rosary – I am a good Catholic I am. When I have a long walk ahead of me, I whip it out and have me some God-time.
Single key chain – The same key lets me into my house and my room. I have never misplaced it. Amazing!
Oil stained paper bag from Dunelm stores – Was the former custodian of the best blueberry muffin in Durham. I’m an addict.
Black diary – Note it is 2011. This is the first time that I started the year with a diary of same year. Thanks Prof.
Orange cover notebook – almost full and looking tatty but I remain loyal.
Nacet blade pack- I think its a habit from Vet days that I always carry blades. Good for quick surgeries – cloth surgery, nail surgery, hair surgery. I had to wait till a friend visited from Naija to replace my old pack. I didn’t know they don’t sell blades in the UK. Whyever??
Tesco glue stick – have you ever been at the post office with a letter or card to post and the envelope flap refuses to stick? Happened to me a number of times. So I got me this stick.
Lip gloss, Revlon eye pencil, mascara, eye liner – Believe me people, I do my make-up on the go - without a mirror – and it looks good if I might say so.
p.s. Missing from the pix is a bottle of water and my lap top (Yes I carry my good old 12" HP DV6000 laptop around with me most times).
............If my shoulder could talk, it would curse me out for the stress I put it through.
Who to tag?? YOU!
