I had 2 (other?) packages with/besides/in addition to/ together with my bag and a flower which my student had given to me.
besides my bag, I had 2 other packages with myself and a flower which my student had given to me.
I think "with my bag" in sentence 1is ambiguous, so I look for a better preposition or rephrasing. Which ones do work?
In sentence 2 I'm not sure about "with my self".
