I won't go into lots of details but because of some completely unexpected turn of events, I've had to return my pond shoulder bag and wristlet to help with some 'emergency' situations. I don't mind really because it's for my family but at the same time I am very, very saddened to have to send my lovely bag back. It seems silly to be bothered and I know I'll have no regrets plus thank goodness I can return it. I hadn't even carried it yet, I was waiting for the first signs of spring! LOL! Anyway, I just knew I'd get a little understanding here and wanted a 'shoulder' to cry on! Of course, my dh thinks I'm the best thing since peanut butter so I can't complain! That's a nice feeling! There will be lots of other bags in the future too. Well, anyway, I guess I just needed to say this to someone who would really understand. Thanks for 'listening'! PS. I have my health, my family (and their health) and my home so I am still one happy woman! Just a little sad for my bag!
