Mad bag

Yes, yes, you think I'm talking about myself again. Or the old woman who walks around town in her wellies pushing a pram....

Instead I just wanted to show you my new satchel, which really is a mad bag. Who could resist imagery which combines a pink typewriter with a selection of colourful birds and a couple of nests? On a bag?


I bought it to replace my old one which also had an avian theme.


A woman I'd never met before admired it once. “I love the picture!” she said, on seeing the robin.  “But I don't like what it's made of ,” she then added in a strongly disapproving tone.  Actually, it's not real leather, it's faux leather... but I wasn't about to get into a debate about it with a woman who had clearly overdone the peroxide at one time but not recently enough to disguise her black roots.  Faux blonde?  Ooh, catty!

Faux leather eventually flakes, though; hence the need for a new bag, which is also faux, but very truly mad. As mad as a bag of birds.

  1. I'da told that **** it was made out of the skins of kittens or of old cows that didn't know when to mind their own business.

    Who are these people and where do they get off.

    Be like...I don't know, goin' down the river on Sunday morning..."That's a nice fish but you're going to hell for catching it on Sunday."

    That kinda stuff just crawls all over me.

    Swanky bag though.

    1. Haha! I wish I had the balls to do that!
      But yes, it's that self-righteous thing that gets me. Everyone's entitled to their opinions but, in my opinion, not to put other people down about theirs. Particularly if they're misinformed - how ironic!

  2. I'm currently on the lookout for a courier bag, or similar over the shoulder number. I'd be chuffed to snag one as cool as yours.

  3. Cute satchel... shame it's predecessor attracted the attention of the suicide blonde though. I hate zealots, no matter what the cause. My ex-BF was a lovely guy in many ways but also a self-righteous Vegan (I know some people would ask if there were any other sort) and could never contain his disgust at what other people were eating... often to their face WHILE they were eating it. It's just plain rude.

    BTW, I'm currently a Suicide Brunette... an inch and a half of Salt'n'black Pepper roots!

    1. Hmmm... self-righteous vegans... my feathers are ruffling at the mere thought! It's very counterproductive for a start and, as you say, some things are just plain rude. I choose not to meat but I really hate being labelled a 'vegetarian' these days because of all the negative assumptions!
      Once had some new neighbours who very right-on in all those respects and I made the fatal mistake of offering them tea and biscuits not long after they'd moved in. They could have just politely said "no thanks" but instead judgements were made over where the biscuits were bought from! They moved away from Suffolk soon after, having decided it was too 'meaty'!

  5. Nice satchel, C. Bags play a big part in some folks lives - in a house full of women I'm constantly falling over them. I prefer pockets but they just are not big enough - and they rarely come in fancy designs.

    1. Ah, I often wonder how men can manage without bags! Pockets are fine to a point aren't they, but then ideally they need to be button-down too or inside a jacket and then what do you do on a hot day when you're out in your shirt-sleeves? I mean, surely every man needs somewhere a bit more spacious to put their keys, mobile phone, wallet and lippy....

    2. Well, I'm very fond of the big leg pockets on my numerous pairs of 'cargo pants'. With careful planning, most things can be stored there. The reason I prefer winter to summer is that I can always wear a jacket with plenty of pockets.

    3. Cargo pants are great - you're like a human suitcase!
