What is in my pockets?

Over recent months, I’ve noticed a voyeuristic trend in the blogging and vlogging world. It seems to involve mums revealing what is in either their handbag or changing bag.

A hair band. One of the many items I hauled from my pockets following a demanding day of fatherhood.

This is quite a difficult trend for a guy such as myself to take part in. Although I am partial to using a good man bag from time to time, I don’t use one 24/7. My children are also well past the stage of wearing nappies so I no longer travel anywhere with a changing bag.

The one thing I do have? I’ll tell you: pockets.

The one thing that never ceases to amaze me is the amount of junk that accumulates in my pockets. Stones or leaves that my daughters want to keep for some reason, broken bits of toy, Scottish bank notes, till receipts, passports, outdated party invites and batteries: all have turned up in my pockets over recent weeks.

It is a fact of life that a father’s pockets are never empty. Sometimes, just sometimes, my pockets are used for carrying my wallet and mobile phone.

For a little fun, I thought I’d reveal to the world what was in my pockets after a hard day of fatherhood. I made a short video as I emptied my pockets. If you want to see what I had squirreled away in there, click play on the video below.

The contents were a mixture of the embarrassing, the awkward and the mundane. Interestingly, however, I think the contents revealed just how central the family is to my life, much of it revolving around my two young daughters, Helen and Izzy, and activities I had recently undertaken with them.

I encourage you to watch the video. Please do leave a comment below with your thoughts on the contents of my pockets.

If you’re inspired to do so, why not make a video revealing what is in your pockets? I’m pretty sure I’d watch it purely to be nosey.

  1. Haha, brill. Love the trendy jeans! I’ve found buttons, stones, Lego, dummies and more in my pockets! Thanks for linking up to That Friday Linky

    1. Yeah, and I was in desperate need of a hair cut! Glad you liked the video and post. Dummies and Lego all sound typical to me as well.

  2. Agh man, stones, leaves, hairbands are a constant in my pockets – not just in my jeans, but in my jacket pockets too! By all accounts, they belong in my daughters stone collection & leaf collection!! Good read. #ThatFridayLinky

  4. Haha. Love this! It’s been a while since I washed my jeans so I’m tempted to follow suit with coat and jeans. It’s like an mini man/dad drawer in them all.

    1. Oh yes, I can relate to that. In fact @ve just put a load in the washing machine and seem to have discovered half of a beach within the pockets. Think this may have had something to do with me diving down sand dunes the last time we were on the coast!
