I was given the boxset for the tv series Lost for Christmas. I started watching it, and noticed that whilst the discs normally show pictures of the characters on them, the second disc for the second season had a picture of a teddy bear on it. I guess this was a missing character from the series whose story ended up on the cutting room floor, so we never got to see how they survived on the island against the polar bears.


We had a wonderful surprise arrive in the post this morning. Maleyna had built a bear from a kit from build a bear and sent it to us. She is a cheerleader bear, so we decided to call her Cheery. She is a very happy bear and keeps doing chants spelling out the teddy bear names. She is a very welcomed addition to our home and we would like thank Maleyna for creating her.

Drew Barrymore

I was reading an article on elle.com, they have an interview with Drew Barrymore. She is in one of my favourite films, The Wedding Singer. I have to say that I like her even more after reading about her teddy bears, ‘An aubergine-color teddy bear, a gift from a hotel in Paris, is peeking out from her soft suede Foley + Corinna satchel. “I love him sooo much,” says the star, meaning the toy, as she reverts to a six-year-old. “Feel him!” she urges, fondling it, then rolls her eyes ceilingward. “Clearly, I’m a little girl. I used to have a blankie and when my mom had to wash it, I would sit outside the dryer and watch it go round and round, and cry.”‘.

I would also like to wish her a happy birthday.


Inside a balloon

Teresa gave a wonderful gift to Craig for Valentines Day, a Gund bear inside a big balloon with smaller heart balloons. The bear was desperate to get out of the balloon, we eventually popped the balloon and he sat there quietly on the floor deafened by the bang. His name is Barnaby. He is very fascinated by the world outside the balloon so tends to spend his time looking around him.

Make Your Own Cuddly Bear

I went into WHSmiths earlier and I couldn’t believe it when I saw a box on the shelf for ‘Make Your Own Cuddly Bear’. The teddy bear on the box doesn’t even look like me. 🙁 The bear is still very cute, so if you see one of these then you have to get one, make your own cuddly bear and it will be just so huggable like me. 🙂
