Lost and Found

Did I ever mention that I'm sentimental? I loved my childhood....(my senior school was a whole lot of rubbish) ..but up until the age of was great.

I kept all of my favourite best as I could. Ginger my bear used to sit on my bed..or in my bed, I loved him as I thought we were a similar colour...he was soft and felt nice..and had a sweet face.

Then as a 16 year old, we were asked to bring in old childhood toys for an art project at college..and Ginger came along..I painted a big A3 picture of him..then I forgot about him.

I don't know what happened..I can't remember. I think he probably ended up in a box, a cupboard..I can't remember..distracted by other things..boys and parties, dear old Ginger got lost at college.

Then..about 4 or 5 days ago, as I was meandering about ebay..I was looking at old toys, I wasn't looking for anything especially..then I spotted a little face from long ago..

I thought he looked liked Ginger..maybe he would be a different colour..or size..but I took a chance and popped a £10 bid on.....and I won!

Today I came home from work, and as soon as I saw the size of the parcel I was hopeful..not too big..just about the right I unwrapped the parcel...

Dear sweet old Ginger had found his way home...22 years later.....

Phew what a week..

Hey Dear Bloggers hows you? Well I've had better weeks I can tell lets move on to some random woffle about me..

1. I love animals, especially cats..I would have an ark if I could. If I had a magic power it would be to make animal cruelty vanish forever.

2. I'm a handbag addict..and I would love a real Hermes Handbag.

3. I love Gossip Girl, and all things New York.

4. I would love to live in Carmel California..and be a hippy cat in a house on stilts by the ocean, and I would be friends with Kim Novak.

5. I think Kelly Rutherford from GG, is one of the most stylist lovely ladies walking the planet. Hello Kelly if you ever read this!

6. I love the supernatural, all things Halloween.

7. I have a shrine to the Wizard of Oz in my downstairs loo..(Cloakrooms can be sooo boring don't you think?)

8. I hate bullying, in any I'd use my magic powers to get rid of that too..its a shame when you encounter it when you are grown up too, and it can be worse sadly.

9. I love old vintage movies..all kinds but have a soft spot for disaster movies from the 1970s.

10. I love my husband..he helps me tremendously..and always encourages me with my 'colouring in'

Happy Friday dear Bloggers..hope you are safe and well where ever you are.x
