HSMS

Today's prompt is 'teddy bear'. We actually don't have that many bears in the house as I am not that keen on them to be honest. I don't mind the boys having one or two soft animals, but I just see bears as being dust collectors. In this house they always ended up being put on the top of the wardrobe so that they were not cluttering the bedrooms up, then when you went to move them you almost died off dust inhalation!!!! Not good....LOL!!!
So the bear I have photographed today is a little pot bear. He still gathers dust, but as he is only about an inch tall, it doesn't take long to clean him. He was bought for me by an ex boyfriend when I passed my PGCE course. He is quite cute, an although the ex wasn't... the bear can stay.
I hate Royal Mail at the moment.... yesterday I got not one but two parcels delivered to me. What's the problem I hear you say... well, the problem is that I was the sender of the parcels!!! I wrote very clearly on the back of the parcels sender address, and very clearly on the front the to address, and they post them to me!?!?!? Then I get a parcel that was for me, and it was soaked through... and yesterday was a lovely dry day.... so what exactly they get up to in the sorting offices is beyond me. So now I have to re pack one of the two parcels, as the packaging was mashed up, and trundle off to the PO again to re-send. GGGRRRRRRRRR!!!! *shaking my fist at RM*

On a positive note though, I did get two parcels of stash arrive today. One is full of goodies ordered from Papermaze, and the other was the December Scrapagogo kit. The gogo kit is lovely, but as I already have the papers I have decided to sell it on the UKS marketplace. So if you want it let me know and I can get it packed off to you ready for all those Christmas projects:)

Cute teddy!

Don't get me started on RM. The amount of swaps and RAK packets that have gone missing between my friends and I, is unbelievable. Grrrrrrrrr

Very cute little guy...and a fab shot. We love teddy bears in this house and DD keeps them all on the top bunk of her bed.

Cute little teddy!
I sent two packages off and when they arrived they had postage due. I knew that I put enough on them. They charged the reciever the postage! Crazy!
