I am starting a new job on Monday.

A new job is not about regaining some independence, or earning more, or setting a good example for my children, or contributing to society in any meaningful way...........it is all about the bag you take original.gif

I intend to spend today (that is, after I clean the house, dress my children, take down the christmas tree and decorations and continue writing an entirely new curriculum across five year levels....) looking at bags on the internet. After I get my first pay check, I will be purchasing a bag congratulating myself.

I can't decide whether I want a new laptop bag or a new handbag. Maybe I want both wink.gif

Would you share your handbag pron with me?

So far, I have these on my shortlist:

I just bought this in the sale

I love it!  I'm not a handbag person and don't normally buy them (my mum usually supplies them as gifts).  It's big but not bulky, has various pockets and is a lovely soft leather original.gif
I like the John Lewis bag you've picked.

I got this, or one very similar to it, two years ago but didn't pay that price for it.  It has been a very good bag and still looks like new even though I treat it roughly and carry it most days.

I took this bag into my trembling hands in the Celine shop in Tokyo. It was a joy to behold. I would have bought it but for the $2000 price tag. ohmy.gif

I have this one at the moment:

Bag

I have no idea why it is described as small, it's the biggest handbag I have ever had!

I usually carry a laptop bag separately for work.
