Men usually want to know what ladies have in their handbags (also purse or pouch in American English) because it seems full of ‘stuff’  but it is always an endless scratching and searching  without coming up with the goodies! And if a cell phone rings, it is a catastrophe if it is hidden away in the bag….They suspect the kitchen sink is in there somewhere too!


In mine:-

Red purse (American wallet?) with credit cards, some cash, my ID and driver’s licensee.

A Pen (well most of the time).

Lipstick and lip-gloss

A spare contact lens

Small bottle of perfume

My asthma pump

Some sweets which you get when you pay at a restaurant

Small pack of tissues

Waterless handwash


And sometimes my camera.
