Family Favourites : Goodordering Bags
Hello! I hope you are surviving the children being back at school. It is always such a shock to the system for everyone, especially after the excitement of the first few days has died down. And the reality of the logistics, crazy mornings, endless school admin and homework kicks in. Half-term still feels a long way away. Know that I'm thinking of you all. We can do this!
To make all this a lot more joyful we were so happy to receive a very thoughtful gift from the wonderful people at Goodordering Bags. Stef and I have been using these bags since earlier in the year and both love them. We took them to the USA with us on our road trip (lots more about the trip coming very soon!) and so many people said how much they loved them. And the kids love that we have matching bags.
So, you can imagine their excitement when they came home to their very own ones?!
Now we have one each and it makes me smile so much when I come downstairs in the morning to see them all lined up together.
Our ones are the Market Shoppers and can be worn over the shoulder, as a backpack and even attach to your bike as a pannier. And they have a wonderful number of pockets, which for me is a very important feature of any bag!
And the children have the Kids' Backpacks. We have both also used these on a couple of weekend days when we've just needed a smaller bag.
Not only do I adore the bags but I love the story behind the bags. The company is based in East London, so nice and local to us. And the brand name comes from founder Jacqui's childhood memories of going out for family meals in restaurants and when they had enjoyed the food they would shout "good ordering!" to their mum. I love the sense of family and gatherings that is at the heart of this brand, which is why it feels even more perfect that our family all have one to match!
