It’s very important, nay vital, that I carry a first aid kit at all times.
It’s one of the reasons that I wear a big very heavy jacket at all times as that jacket has copious pockets, plentiful enough and deep enough to carry nearly a week’s shopping.
Every time I go out there are things I have to remember to bring such as keys, phone and all my first aid stuff.
Daughter solved my problem with a lovely gift at Christmas. She gave me a little man-bag to sling over my shoulder. It is ideal for carrying all those life-saving items that normally would be distributed around my pockets. No more frantically searching through all those pockets when I need an item urgently.
So now a trip to the village [or, indeed anywhere] is much easier. My life support items all fit very neatly in my new bag leaving my hands free to carry shopping and a dog-lead.
So what are the essentials?
Two pipes [one never knows when one might be lost, stolen or run over by a lorry].
My tobacco pouch along with a spare pack [how is it that whenever I’m out my pouch always seems to be nearly empty?].
Two lighters because one of them never seems to work.
My little knife/scraper/prodder/tamper tool.
I think there is enough there to see me through any unforeseen circumstances?
