Five things in my handbag

An interesting meme I’ve seen on blogs over the last couple of days – Jade Rachel‘s included, so I’m joining in ad posting about the 5 Things in My Purse at All Times

Wet wipes/hand sanitiser One of the perils of travelling by public transport, you never know when you’re going to touch something unpleasant.

Pocket rocket vibrator Oh, don’t look at me like that. Sometimes a woman gets frustrated during the course of her day and needs to get herself off in the bathroom!

Spare pair of glasses I’m as blind as a bat without my glasses, and I don’t get on with wearing contact lenses all day. Spare glasses are essential as a ‘just in case’

Hair accessories Ive always got a couple of hair grips and a band or two with me. London can get very humid at times and avoiding bad hair day frizz is always handy

Tablet computer For working on the go

That’s not to say those are the only things in my purse, but those are definitely among my essentials.

A Day in the Life: February 2016

I think I have an ‘About Me’ page that I’m pretty pleased with. Thank you, all, for your tips and advice. It was very much appreciated.
Please do let me know what you think – all constructive criticism welcomed 🙂

Now, on with the post:
ADITL-Feb2016A Day in the Life is a monthly link up ran by Georgie. On one day each month you are invited to summarise your day, using the prompts provided if you want.

What did you wear today?
It was a work day, so a pair of red wide-leg trousers, matching blazer and a black wrap blouser. Now that I’m home, I’m in a khaki tuni and black skinny jeans.

What made you laugh?
Caden Bryce, just being himself. He wanders up to me, sits down and looks at me very seriously before asking me if I wanted to know what he was thinking about. I told him yes. Then he looked all sad and told me he’d forgotten what he was going to say.

TIL (Today I Learned)
HTML. Or, at least, I started learning it. Using a wordpress template is all wel and good but I figured it would be nice to be able to do more than just bolding and italics. I’ve started a free online course at https://www.codecademy.com/

The weather
Right now it is 7C and a little cloudy, but dry. It’s been like this most of today.

Four People I Encountered Today

Jade Rachel
Well of course my wife is going to be on the list. She woke me up this morning with a lovely mug of steaming hot sweet black coffee. Could life get any better? ♥

Caden Bryce
Our sweet little boy. He’s been sick this last week, a really bad cold and he’s been very clingy. He hasn’t left me alone since I got home from work. This is not a complaint!

Aaron
One of the IT guys at work. I was having issues with connecting to our internal network and he came and fixed it. Sweet kid, and always has sweets/chocolate/cookies to share with everyone! 🙂

Emma
Emma is a young homeless girl who I always see at the tube station. I would say she’s about mid-twenties and has a border collie. I buy her breakfast and some dog food every day – always make sure she has blankets/gloves/hat when it’s cold, an umbrella/coat when it’s rainign.
