My good friend and fellow blogger queenie wrote yesterday about her weakness for buying shoes and, quite rightly, said I suffer from the same disorder. I am afraid to count how many pairs of shoes I have, but I also suffer from another disorder I cannot resist buying handbags! I have just had a quick count and am ashamed to say there must be at least 50.
I took three of my favouite handbags out of the cupboard and took the photograph (left). The black one is a Gucci, soft leather and my most expensive. Can't say how much just in case MWM reads the blog. The tan one was an absolute bargain from a charity shop. It looks like crocodile skin (not sure if it is) and was obviously very expensive when new. The turquoise one was very reasonably priced at around £25, it is the softest suede and holds an entire wardrobe if I need it to and I love the colour.
I know I do not need all these handbags - I can only use one at a time - so why do I buy them? The same reason I buy shoes I suppose because I like them! It's strange that no matter how many pairs of shoes or handbags you have, when you buy a new outfit you always need new shoes and a new handbag to complete the ensemble - or is it just me?

I had a much better night's sleep last night with my full quota of drugs. I slept until about 5.15 a.m. took another dose then slept until 9.30 a.m. MWM says I look much better today - must be the sleep!
