While shopping with the kids last week I saw a handbag, on sale, in a style very much like one I had previously admired which belonged to a friend. Nice choice of colours, attractive price, everything you could wish for. I almost bought it, but decided at the last minute that I didn't really need one, my current bag was fine. Today, while out getting lunch, the strap broke on my handbag. Of course the one I saw was in Canberra, on sale. It's probably sold out by now.
