In preparation for my upcoming two-week camp trip thing next week, my mum and I have been visiting various stores to stock up on things to pack. Of course, the list of necessary objects included a cute sun hat, a nifty tote bag (I might use this as a bookbag when school starts, even), and the coolest wallet/pencil case combination ever! I mean, it holds money, pens, and has a camera printed on it! How groovy is that!?
Hmm, groovy. We should bring that word back. Or maybe that's just pain meds and me getting into character for hippy camp, who knows? Anyway, groovy is a groovy word :)
This new wallet is for travel and/or school purposes only - I'm always afraid of using my regular wallet when I travel, though you'd think the logical thing to fear when losing a wallet is the money and plastic inside of it, not the wallet itself, right? I never ever ever buy new wallets because the wallet I use every day (and have used for a super long time) is 1) adorable and 2) of immense sentimental value to me, though I'm not really sure why. It has a kitty on it, though the kitty is fading due to age, and it was given to me by one of my cousins. I must have been seven or eight at the time, just becoming interested in the idea of carrying money around in a bag "like my mummy!" I remember talking about wanting a wallet, because she had bought a new one that day and I was feeling down because my mum wouldn't let me buy one too. She pulled out her old wallet, which had been clipped and chained to her black cargo pants (to prevent thievery? I have no idea) and offered it to me. I viewed it as a huge step in growing up, and even though I don't even remember exactly which of my female cousins this "she" I'm referring to is, I still love that little wallet.
