Still rummaging through the boxes of memorabilia in the loft with a view to loft upgrading, we are really enjoying ourselves! Roger came at the weekend and sifted through his old toys and I had a good time looking through my own.
I can hardly believe it is 20 years since I first went to the Doll and Bear convention at DisneyWorld Orlando. I was invited on three occasions to participate and it was such a wonderful opportunity. The very first time was the best - just at the time when all the Christmas decorations appeared and of course it was all so new to me.
I made a wonderful big bear for the auction and delighted at the results. Just before I was due to send it out there it was in my car boot when the car was stolen! I was so upset; more about the bear than I was about the car. When the police arrived he patted me on the shoulder and said 'don't worry madam, we will get your bear back!' Amazingly enough he did!
I have put the badges etc carefully back in the tin and placed it lovingly on my shelf in my new haven. However, I have put the watch on ebay - it seems such a pity that no-one has ever worn it. The item no. is http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/290682871393?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 if anyone is interested to have a look!
