leap

Two days off and whaddaya know?

This morning it was still raining. Not horizontal rain with teeth like yesterday's, just gentle, continual large drops. It was lovely.

Anyway, it wasn't enough to prevent me from going in to work. As I got ready (jacket, trenchcoat, raincoat) I looked at my bag. You know, the Bag O Doom that has everything in it up to and including carabiners, pliers and electrician's tape? And I thought "I'm sick of lugging you around. You're heavy and I hardly ever use what's in you. You're hard to keep dry when it's raining and *moan bitch etc*" Also, someone mentioned the other day that it might be like a security blanket. To which my eyes went big and wide and horrified. Yup.

So anyway, I pulled out stuff I thought I would need and put them in a smaller bag. These included: my camera, phone, keys, cards and money, lip balm and a book. Also, cables for my camera and gizmo. It was SO LIGHT! So far, I've missed having my glasses wipey cloth. That's it.

I'm now in the market for a smaller bag. I'm not really a handbag kind of girl, and I know lots of my friends aren't either. So, ladies (or gents) - what do you use and where can I get one? I'll still have to use the big one on days when I train, but the rest of the time I could travel so much lighter..

Today, I am smiling quietly to myself with glee. I am also looking forward to Melbourne's weather from yesterday getting here in time for the weekend. There will be playing in the snow, oh yes. And also jacuzzis if I can possibly arrange it.

Colour me happy. And slightly damp. And probably bruised.
