Bags of comments: Thanks for all your bag-related confessions yesterday. I knew the rest of you must be carrying something unnecessary around with you, and now I know exactly what it is that I'm managing to live happily without.
Bottle of water - totally unnecessary, see last Sunday. Can of fizzy drink - I never, ever, waste my money on shop-bought cans. Sandwiches - I confess that I do often waste £2 buying my lunch rather than making it. Newspaper - can be carried without need for bag. Book - not needed if you have a newspaper, for short journeys at least. Sports kit - dangerous sign of an unpleasantly healthy lifestyle. Notepad - I use my mobile phone instead. Camera - my tiny snapper easily fits in a pocket when required. Comb - unnecessary. Gloves and hat - for wimps. Sunglasses - for posers. Umbrella - oh come on, it's only water. MP3 player - Better worn than stashed. Deodorant - I keep a spare stick in my office drawer. Work-related paperwork - my job thankfully avoids this. Laptop - granted, bag required.
And may I thank you all for all your comments recently. There have been over 200 in the last fortnight alone, on top of the 40-plus I got for my 40-minus birthday. Ta, much appreciated. Funny things, comments, because when you start up a blog they're a long time coming, and I reckon there are tons of blogs out there that are still criminally under-commented upon. Thanks for leaving your thoughts here - now do go and leave some comments somewhere else too. Here are ten places you might start: ••••••••••
