What's in your wallet?

Me and my mates were bored tonight and decided to swap wallets and see if we could figure out whose wallet we'd got by what was in it. Apparently the contents of someones purse can be quite good at describing their personality!

In mine I have:

3 Old Bus tickets

2 Space Center Annual passes


A faceshield

A pair of FA gloves

An Allen key (Carried around so I can tighten the screws on my scooter)

2 AA batteries

An asthma attack card

my 3month planner (Cuz my memory is rubbish!)

2 Old alton towers tickets

a tesco mobile top up card

And a ""I'm a lost child"" card.

So does anyone else fancy braving what's in their wallets?

My mum would say a handbag isn't a handbag unless it can carry a carton of milk and still close.

Dad called her handbag, Wells Fargo cos of all the stuff she carried around with her.

PS To all you mums out there -

When gathering up the kids' toys after visiting auntie, think twice before putting that toy magnet in your handbag. Daughter's was strong enough to de-magnetise my bank cards and they didn't work anymore. LOL
