Charlie Bears and looking forward to Wimbledon


Grandpa bearHello!

As I write this, it's a glorious summers day… however, as you read this it could be pouring with rain!

It's a favourite past time to discuss weather isn't it? This year has been exceptional though. I sound a bit like my Dad when I say… "when I was a lad I remember 4 definitive seasons!"


Wimbledon tennis is upon us and I'm really fortunate to have the chance to visit again this year – and if there's rain I should be OK as I'm on centre court with the motorised roof if needed.

I simply love the sport. I know I'm in a minority when I say I have no interest in football – tennis though, I could watch and play all day, given half the chance.

My son is growing up very quickly. When he was young I'd go a little easy on him during a game of tennis and give him lots of chances…. Boy, how those tables have turned! He has me running all over the court now! Give me a chance… please!

I'm so excited about the Charlie Bears Today's Special Value coming up this Monday 24th June at midnight… I love the picture Charlie and Will have sent (above).

A choice of two, utterly heart-warming, characters, Grandpa or Grandma! As you can see, Grandma is a little camera shy right now and is only willing to reveal a paw! Grandpa on the other hand is clearly enjoying the chance to pose.

It's going to be a great show… I hope you can tune in.

Morganite prizeI'm back with Destination Gems on Tuesday 25th at 8pm. It wasn't on last Tuesday as we had our fashion event. This week we focus on Ruby, the birthstone for July. We have a few extra surprises up our sleeve as well and I've already hand picked the 'Gem Reveal' which is simply charming. Hope you can join me.

Remember the competition to win this morganite stone (pictured). Simply tweet or post me a picture of you wearing your favourite piece of jewellery. Full terms and conditions can be found here.

Ok, better dash and check on that weather!

Take care,

Charlie x

    Morning Charlie.
    How’s the ” lily growing going ????”. When they grow [ a bit of advise] keep the puppies away from the stamins if they get the pollen on their fur and they digest it it can make them sick.
    Once again a really ” A BIG THANK YOU” for the ” Rose De France” stone. Every one gasped when they saw it at the week-end.I feel very privileged in winning it. I’ll get some one to take a photo of me and my stone.
    Bella and i will be watching Charlie Bears on Tuesday [ I must try and get a picture of her watching]. I’m looking forward to destination gems and the Ruby collection [ I’m a Ruby fan].
    I have been trying to tweet you but have found out the security on my net book is blocking the private ones [ don’t know why], so I’m going to sort it out over the week-end.
    Take care. Bella say’s a BIG whoof.
