When my darling Mother went out at the crack of dawn this morning on her day off I didn't really think anything of it. She's off on holiday on Thursday, and I assumed she was running round doing the last minute bits and bobs (after all, she only booked it last Thursday!)
When she arrived home, she said to me "I got you something" and handed me a cute little Cath Kidston travel pass holder, with my new job I will no longer be able to drive in to work (boo!) and will be getting the London Underground eveyday, and will need a travel card and all that jazz. So I thought it was really cute of her.
And then she said, "I got you something else as well", and she handed me a huge Bentalls (a department store near us) bag, I peeked inside and actually squeeled!
For getting the new job she bought me this absolutely gorgeous Michael Kors tote bag in snake print.
It is the most perfect size for day to day and for commuting, and it can go over my shoulder which is another great bonus, because the majority of my bags are just held on my arm. I am so greatful and overwhelmed that she went out and surprised me like that, and I'm absolutely in love with the handbag.
