Bear necessities



More ideas of how to cheer-up myself during this bleak January weather...spending! I bought myself a little pressie off Fleabay, and yes it was a little over my two shillings budget. Still, it made me smile and thats enough. This wee bear is clockwork, and once fully wound, does a very athletic march, stopping occasionally to sniff the air, and then carries on until eventually he gets a bit tired and has a nap, sound familiar?

Luck would have it, I have since found out that this bear was made by Schuco, Germany, thus making it rather collectible i fancy, possibly worth a lot more than I paid for it. But anyway, thats not the point 'cause he's gonna stick with me and show me how to survive the British winter.

    What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
