bag- River Island
So, yesterday was a pretty shit day. I was rejected from the job I really wanted, after getting down to the final 3. Since I didn't actually tell you what it was for, due to trying not to jinx it (fat load of good that did me) it was actually a full time paid shop assistant job in a local charity shop, for who I had volunteered in another shop last summer. I haven't had the feedback yet, so don't know why I didn't get it, but I am just so gutted. I wouldn't mind if it was a job that I perhaps didn't have enough qualifications or experience for, but I seemed perfect for this. They wanted someone with ideas who wanted to help move the shop forward, and I thought I was just the sort of person they were wanting. I'm not sure why I didn't get it, but I am hoping it is not something stupid with me, but just that one of the other candidates was amazing.
The one good thing that came out of yesterday was that my River Island parcel finally arrived. I wanted this bag after seeing it in Grazia about a month ago, but was trying to find it in a shop so I could see how big it was, because the website description is just shockingly bare. But I tried about 3 different stores and none of them stocked it, so in the end I just ordered online. Its taken an age to arrive (just under a week- I have no patience with parcels!) but since it arrived yesterday along with the bad news, I'm not as excited about it as I should be. I do like it, but it is a little on the small side- the difficulty is that it is not definitely too small, but would challenge my bag-hoarding habit somewhat! I think it would do me good to have such a small bag, so I think I will keep it, but I'd like to know your thoughts. It did cost £30 which is a lot for a small non leather bag.
Let me know what you think. I'll try and stop being a whingy miserable cow soon, I promise.
