A Working Mum
Everyone has their weakness and in my case it’s handbags ... I LOVE bags ! Small bags, large bags, brown bags, black bags ... I LOVE bags!
I have been extremely well-behaved of late, well since our son was born, I haven’t bought one single bag, however my OH very kindly bought me a very swish Radley bag for Christmas the year before last. Well he had actually bought me a very fancy briefcase styled bag, which was gorgeous, but I knew that I probably wouldn’t use it that often. It would be more admired than used.
I very gently asked him if I could possibly exchange the briefcase for a bag that I would get more use out of, I did feel awful asking him this as I knew that he’d spend a bit of time looking at them and trying to decide on which one to purchase. I did however start the New Year with my swish new bag and it’s used every day when I’m at work, and I’ve had so many people comment on it.
My parent’s and in-laws help out with childcare for our son and as a thank you we did purchase a couple of Radley bags for birthday presents last year as way of thanks. Needless to say they were well received!
It’s my mum’s 75 birthday next month and I’ve been wondering what on earth to get her ... What do you get someone who say that she doesn’t need anything? I must admit I’ve been thinking along the lines of another bag for her. She loves the one that we bought for her and as she’s having a bit of a rubbish time of things just now it would really put a smile back on her face. I’ve been looking at slightly different styled bags from the ones that she’s currently got, I’ve been looking at , the only problem that I’ve got now is there’s too many to choose from. My current favourite is this one
It looks fab, especially in the Bitter Chocolate colour. Do you think my OH would notice if I sneaked this one in with the order for my mum’s bag?
What are your vices, and do you give in to them?
