It’s amazing what triggers memories…


Charlie's teddy bear Barney Hi, I hope you're enjoying this sunshine, it's lovely. Remember your sun protection though!

I was sorting out a few things a couple of weeks ago and found my old teddy bear. His name is Barney! On finding him, I suddenly remembered pulling him on a sledge through my back garden… not in the snow though, it was a bright sunny day!

That was around 30 years ago and here he is a little worn but able to tell the tale.

It also links rather nicely to a wonderful show I have this Sunday evening with Charlie Bears from 9pm. The range is adorable and very affordable too. The guests are husband and wife William and Charlotte (Charlie) who are just lovely.

Take care and hope to see you Sunday at 9pm

    Hi Charlie, just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your presentation of “Charlie” Bears last night! I was totally hooked. You made it so enjoyable by your playful friendly teasing etc. What a lovely couple Charlie and William are. I am an avid collector of bears myself and have over 200 in my ever increasing collection. One can never have too many. Keep them coming!!!!!
