Hello everyone, I just wondered if anyone else had a certain 'ahem' weakness whereby however hard you try not to, you just haven't been able to resist having.

Mine, is :o handbags:o . The shame of it is, I am sooooo not really a handbag person but I seemed to have developed a slight........unhealthy interest lets say over the last few years.:D

Luckily my last 3 aquisitions were given to me by a friend over christmas as she was having a clear out.

I have now got to be ruthless and have a really cleansing clear out and start selling some on ebay.......starting tomorrow....promise.:rolleyes:

  • I love(d) shoes and adored cigarettes. I haven't had new shoes for months and months, and I gave up the fags over 15 months ago.

    Like sophiesmum I love books, but my main weakness is getting my hair cut.

    In fact, shhh tell no one, I've been known to read my cookery books in bed at night, dear dierdrie, is this normal?.
