Rather than go on and on about what has been happening (that's the past baby...move on!) I will start anew, as if I haven't even been away...and show you my fabulous new bag (modelled by Daisy, the Formomatic Dummy).
Made by The Cambridge Satchel Company in the UK, I received it within 10 days of purchase, which is pretty damn good, considering it had to be customised as well. It takes longer for a letter to reach my husband over in WA.
Which is just what I intend to do. It is going with me on a splendid adventure to Italy and Croatia in two weeks time.
I will be recording our odyssey in minute detail...but that is the good thing about blogs, they remain as a record of your life.
