I believe it's:

おバッグのなかにありますか。
o-baggu no naka ni arimasu ka.
I wish I weren't here...that my time could be spent elsewhere.

What does 'mono' mean? I'm a beginner, I haven't come across that yet...

You don't really say なんもの in Japanese. you definately don't say なにもの, as that's a curse along the lines of "what the hell" or "who the hell are you?"

I would suggest something like
あなたのかばんの中に何がありますか?

I just saw that mo, had written the same thing, except in reverse order. Count this post as confirming his sentence, then. ;)
