I have been carrying around a playmobil policeman's cap in my purse for around 2 months. In case you're wondering, they don't accept it as legal tender in Starbucks. grin

IKWYM, I tried to open my car door with a plastic Dora toy last week.

On emptying my bag, I found
2 Dora toys
2 hairclips
3 hairbands
A pair of childs pants
A pair of socks
a pot of bubbles
And some miniture coloured pencils from a restraunt.

I was so blush at my disorganisation and accumalation of tatt

My childminder found a bottle of gin in the boys' changing bag once.

I was blush

I couldn't explain it away either.

Being pregnant I cleaned out my car to find my wee sample from 3 weeks ago.

Not as embarrasing as when I was 15 and trying to impress the sixth form girls at school by taking out a cigarette and trying to light it only to find I had a slimline tampon in my mouth.

pigeon well yes, because it WAS Starbucks, and this WAS West London. They would probably be out of business without the NCT and all the coffee morning mums. I think they have been trained to find us all "amusing" and all the kids "adorable".

Ours has it's own kids area with toys 'n shit.

Puzzle - that is rank. grin

Sheik - DD knows the gin is Mummy's special medicine and I don't like to share! wink

Respect to the handbag booty of Norks.

You get double points if you ever used said Dora hairclips to hold back your own hair in a style emergency.

Well, they weren't Dora, but they did have cupcakes on them blush

twelvelegs oh, just boil it up, kill the bacteria off, you can still use it.

(or was that for the spag bol left out overnight?).

SpookyMadMummy Mon 13-Oct-08 16:36:43

I have all the touristy leaflets in my bag from our holiday in July blush

PuzzleRocks Mon 13-Oct-08 16:38:26

Use it for what?

fumf Mon 13-Oct-08 16:38:38

I have just looked in my handbag...
I have a million receipts - but none of them for the toy which I bought for a friend's ds which broke when it was unwrapped hmm

A wrapped chupa chup lolly
And for symetry, an unwrapped chupa chup lolly. Which is now adhered to my MP3 angry

I have a half-eaten biscuit wrapped in a napkin which ds just informs me he put there weeks ago in case he wanted to eat it later.

And around 20 shriveled conkers.

Oh, it was just a lame attempt at humour. blush

You'll have to excuse me. Was up until 3am last night floundering around all these stupid troll threads...hence the realisation I we all need to move on. grin

PuzzleRocks Mon 13-Oct-08 16:56:34

And mine was a poor attempt at setting up an opening for some appalling suggestions. smile
I'm enjoying this thread.

Sycamoretree Mon 13-Oct-08 17:03:19

Oh, Oh, ok, I get it!

Um, for Sheik to use when her gin runs out? (bleurgh, sorry, someone else do better please).

Twelvelegs Mon 13-Oct-08 17:09:02

I have (I was only 12) put jeans on after whipping them off the night before with pants and tights (used to do shows) only to be walking down the road trying to pull these knickers that ^someone had obviously disgarded^ off of my ankle. It was only when I tried to pull them off with my hands that I realised they were mine as the tights were stuck up my legs. It was a usy Saturday morning on the High Street, nice.

Sycamoretree Mon 13-Oct-08 17:12:23

Oh, you are all class twelvelegs!

Twelvelegs Mon 13-Oct-08 20:22:37
