You old bag, bag

Lets face it if you can sew, in fact, even if you can't sew, anyone can make a bag bag, so I am ashamed to say I have been living with this for about a year and a half now.

I am constantly picking up rolled up grocery bags from around the pantry door, and then trying to strategically stuff them back into the bag without more falling out. God knows how much time I have wasted, when it takes me 10 minutes to make one of these.




And now for the nasty up close shot of it in all its gory!


And the new one in all its glory!

If anyone can shed light on my avoidance issues, I would love to hear them. Answers on the back of a postcard...

Loving the colours and stripes on your new bag bag - not only extremely useful, but great looking. As for you avoidance issues, think I'll steer clear of that topic (suffering from much the same malady lately).

Opps - just read my previous comment. Could sound like I was call you a bag, but I meant your bag for bags. Sorry - no offense intended. I'm claiming diminished mental capacity....

Oh dont worry Iv'e been called worse than a bag ;0). I didn't actually read it like that anyway. I dont think its avoidance to be honest, the word Im looking for here is LAZY I think.

Ahhh, I think that's because we've been conditioned to think we're lazy if we're not tearing about, exhausting ourselves. It's not possible to be lazy in the school holidays to begin with. From what I can see your kids had a lot of fun doing things with their self-confessed "lazy" mum....
