I think the rucksack look just isn't cutting it. Never got on with hand bags before at all as they always seem to fall off, but I thought maybe a cross body one would help. I quite like this allycapellino.co.uk/daniela.html?osCsid=d87175a37f4a0243f92ad6b6cf3d3226
but can't afford the price. Any good suggestions?

Ooh ladies, you are kind - I kind of like that Autograph one, though it might be a bit big. Plain is good..

Started to try links but was useless!

Suggest you look at Blondie Mania and Bosboom, both have the most beautiful bags, unfortunately it is really hard, these days, to find a practical leather rucksack. Arrogance used to do them but no more.

Ooh I am getting into this.. (the children don't really need wellies this winter do they? I could just use that money for a nice bag, couldn't I?) I like the Blondie Mania (liked the Chamonix), but still haven't found perfection. Keep 'em coming if you can be bothered! (Though perhaps tomorrow, as it is late!)
