Yesterday Cro at Magnon's Meanderings took inspiration for his daily post from the photographer Jason Travis, who takes pictures of the contents of stranger's bags. 'That's a blooming good idea!' I
thought. So now it's my turn to share what I lug around on my shoulder all day. It gave me a good excuse for a tidy after all:
So here we have:
Tablet - kindly donated by my employer for personal and private use. I gave my own one to my brother. I'm not a fan of having more stuff than I need.
Charger for my laptop - not the device itself as that was by my bed when the picture was taken.
Boomerang umbrella - safe and sound in my possession - for now!
My purse - with an inordinate amount of cards but not....
A whole load of loose change - I'm a bit forgetful with zips at times.
Till receipts - now binned following the photo shoot.
Teeny pieces of sweet wrappers - ditto
Pencil case and a tape measure - my nursing colleagues rib me. Apparently every occupational therapist has those
Loose pens - that zip problem again. They include my gorgeous fountain pen that makes my writing neater. It's fairly new and came with a couple of cartridge but there's also an ink converter in the bag for when I move onto the Quink.
Some heart shaped post-it notes. A impulsive gift from my head occupational therapist, Sarah Joy.
Silver paper hat and nail clippers - from a 'posh' Christmas cracker that I pulled at the weekend
Sunglasses - as I live in hope of some rays
Hand sanitiser - for those less than sanitary situations
My latest reading - I'm still absorbed in finding out about that sensory stuff.
Pear in a bag - part of my lunch
Blue spotty paper bag - containing a scrabble keyring with the letter L. Louis bought it for himself the other day.
Gauzy bag - containing a handmade felt Yoda. For Louis' Christmas stocking. Good job he doesn't read my blog
Rubberised monster purse - contains my pendulum in case I fancy a swing!
And a soft velvety bag containing my phone charger but not the lead. That's another of those things that's escaped from its proper home.
