Bag Fail & Postcrossing

Either my bag could read blogs or the universe tried teaching me a lesson.
The day after I wrote the 'what's in my bag' post, my pvc bag of awesome broke. Thankfully it broke as I got into my car, so nothing had to spill all over the ground & no one could hear me cursing out a bag.

It is a long weekend here, and 3 days of 3 children at home will result in nothing creative. I tried my hand at watercolour pencils before small people ran off with them. Instead sending some love via postcrossing and hoping to squeeze in some letter writing once the kids sleep.

What's in my bag

Or more to the point why is all that in my bag?
I change my bag every day, and each time I try to cull the amount of things I carry with me. It just never happens. Entirely possible I am messing with my shoulder and possibly my spine from oversized bags full of paper. Pictures taken with iPhone, sorry for the dark photos.

I typically only buy leather bags because I tend to overfill my bags, leather ages beautifully & pvc tends to split and break. This bag I purchased for only $2 from an op shop and I think that it might have been a camera bag. Lots of compartments and padded inside. It is however PVC and I can see there are splits on the handle already. Boo.
Looking forward to seeing what the other LEP members are carrying around  ^_^
