I have a wedding to go to in the immediate future that's going to require travelling. I've wanted to get shot of my old rolly-bag for a couple of years, but since I never go anywhere for longer than a weekend, I hadn't made an effort to find a new one, so this was the nudge I needed.

I pootle into TK Maxx over my lunch break and they have this ridiculously over-sized aquamarine hardcase rolly-bag on sale, just glittering in all it's retro fifties diner glory. I want so badly to buy it and stick a ForeverWare sticker on it and go around making people afraid that I'll put them in rubber kitchenware for thirty years. I can see it in my mind's eye, the creepy glory of the adventures me and this rolly-bag will have together...

...I walked out with a teal rolly that matches my only smart hat and coat and is a normal person size. It's not even because I don't want to be a pretend fifties housewife. It's because the ForeverWare-y one weighed 7KG empty and came up to my waist and there was no way I needed that kind of space when I'm packing to go away and as if I'm dragging around 7KG of plastic, rubber and wheelies.

Being a grownup with the ability to think things through is STUPID.

I'm buying myself a ForeverWare sticker anyway.
