This story is from last year but still worth telling I think!

Last year I saved up for years for a caviar flap bag. Anyway it was June and we were leaving for hols in a few days. If I had ordered the bag over the phone, it wouldn't arrive in time [emoji53]

So my husband who was off work anyway, got up at 5:30am one day to get a 6am train from the north of Scotland to Manchester, England!! He got to the boutique at just after 12 noon. Bought my handbag and finally got home again at 11:30pm!!!

But my other purse was too big for the flap, so I had to phone the Manchester store and buy the zippy purse too [emoji15][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]

What a darling [emoji4][emoji1] so now I have two Chanel bags and am happy. Hubby bought my GST in 2009 while we were in Paris. Gotta love him [emoji173]️[emoji173]️
