Gift in the Post

Herself hasn't been well in the last few months and has received several parcels through the post. Himself and I look on jealously as she opens all sorts of exciting gifts from friends.

You will never guess what. Today it was my turn. Auntie Cathy (who taught me how to embroider and made Herself a superhero cape to match mine) sent me a gift. Me!

Oooh, what's in here?

A whole lot of small-bear-sized umbrellas -
and a card from Auntie Cathy!

A gift for me...

...and I love it.
(This gets the double thumbs up from me.)

Under Lockdown

Herself is a little sad that she has now joined the 1.5+ million people who need to self-isolate and stay shielded during this horrible coronavirus. She would love to go for a long walk in the countryside - and I miss going with her.

But we can still enjoy mooching round the garden together and looking at the daisies.

Best Bookshop Ever

Last weekend we had the best time. Herself is going through some difficult things as well as this horrible coronavirus that is affecting everyone. So Himself took us away for a few days.

Herself and I spent the whole day at Barter Books in Alnwick and had the most marvellous time.

Here we are! 

A marvellous secondhand bookshop inside a quaint old railway station.

This place gets a double thumbs up from me.

We're here! And it's so big!

This is me sorted.

Lots of cosy places to sit quietly and read.

Enjoying a cup of tea beside a real coal fire.
I love this place.

Very good advice.

Can you see the model trains above my head?
Choo choo!

Herself bought one or two books for herself and some little girls
to keep them going.

It snowed today! I was so excited, I couldn't wait to get out and play in it with my big furry friend Jonathan.

Jonathan borrowed Himself's woolly hat to keep his ears warm.

I can't resist a good pose.

Getting ready for some snowball fun.
The snowball is nearly as big as me....


 I hope we get more snow tomorrow.... Wouldn't that be fun?

Moving House

About eighteen months ago, we moved house. It was lots of hard work but we had fun moving and, of course, lots of mugs of tea.

We bought lots of cardboard boxes from Big Yellow Self-Storage.

And we borrowed a load more cardboard boxes and newspaper.

Herself packed all our furry friends very carefully while I supervised.
Lots and lots of packing.
I was a busy bear.

Herself's desk all ready to be taken apart for moving day.
Bare walls. Bare desk. Bear.

It's moving day! The van's arrived!

We've got the keys!

Herself made lists.
Himself made tea.
I kept us all going with chocolate goodies.
Busy, busy, busy.

Do you like the new shoe rack I put together?

Assembling more new furniture.
What did we do before Allen keys?

Ta da!

Yay! Herself's desk is set up and we're ready for work.

Exploring our new area.

Choosing new sofas.
Maybe we'll ditch the psychedelic cushions....

Wey hey! The new sofas have arrived.

Very comfy.

This is home.

Garden Centre Christmas

I love the bright lights and sparkliness of Christmas. So many opportunities for me to show off my furry cuteness (yeah, right). We went to a garden centre at the beginning of Advent which was marvellous fun.

Scamper-sized trees.


I'm off on a safari
(just kidding).

Oooh, sparkly Santa.
Double thumbs up from me.

Look at this model village.
It's got a miniature ski lift and everything.


A musical engine.
What will they think of next?

Can you see me?

You can't beat a glittery unicorn.

Joy to the world....

I think this bear was a bit grumpy about me sitting
on his head.
I'm glad he didn't try sitting on mine.


Just chillin' and dreamin' of a white Christmas....
