Raggedy, falling apart at the seams… and loved!


Our bearHello,

We are keeping everything crossed that the weather will improve for the school holidays. I can't believe where this year is going… August is just around the corner!

Do you like our bear? We adore him but he's become very fragile over the years! We're having a big tidy through the house at the moment, but dear bear will stay firmly placed on his chair in the hallway.

He was given to me when I was a little boy (over thirty years ago!) and would often keep me company while my Mum would read a Mr Men book to me or a Meg and Mog! He used to growl when you pressed his tummy but not any more 🙁

I love the Mr Men books, it's hard to pick a favourite, and then there's Meg and Mog. The story of them going to the moon and bumping into a couple of astronauts is brilliant!

There's another reason for introducing you to bear. Christmas in July is coming up on QVC and I have a couple of Charlie Bears shows this Tuesday 24th July at 8pm and 11pm. It'll be a fun-packed couple of days and as my children will say, its never too early to start thinking about or planning for Christmas… which is now making me think about mince pies!

Take care and see you soon.

Oh, by the way, if you love Invicta watches I have a show on Monday 23rd at 11pm.

Charlie x

This week's fact: At this very moment, we're travelling at around 67,000 miles an hour. That's the speed earth travels as it orbits the sun.

    Hi Charlie, I love your bear, it looks similar to mine from when a child! I too love Charlie Bears and have quite a few of those as well as other makes, teddies are so cute and Charlie Bears are very cute! My bear Katie from Charlie Bears is watching me now, she says hello to your bear and you too! You mentioned that you loved Andy Pandy when a child, me too! When they played the music at end I always cried! Mam used to say “they will be back on tomorrow” but I was still upset! Take care, cheers, Christine

    Hi Charlie-I still have my teddy in my bedroom-57years old (–she became Tessie when I was about 8 and decided to change his ‘status’ to a female (yes, even in those days!!!!!))She sits on a teddy-sized wooden rocker. She is in an appalling state of disrepair-blue wool used to sew her paws (thanks mum) the stuffing virtually all gone—-I keep saying to my granddaughter that I must get her to hospital. Do you know anywhere near N.Wales that repairs teds? Could you ask the Charlie bears couple if they could help please????? Thanks in anticipation. Have a good Summer with your children. Love K.XXX

    Hi Christine, I haven’t seen Andy Pandy for ages…! I also used to love the ‘flumps’. I can’t remember their individual names though. Hello to Katie Bear!
    Take care

    Hello Kay. Wow, 57 years old for a well loved, repaired with blue wool, bear! I don’t know of any teddy bear repair specialists I’m afraid. I’ll ask Charlie and Will when I see them in the week.
    As I write this, there’s glorious blue sky!
    Kind regards.

    Morning Charlie.
    Bella and i watched Charlie Bears last night [8.00pm]. The heat got to her last night and didn’t think she was watching—but oh she was. When you popped out little Blueberry from his little bag she jumped down and sat watching [ tail wagging]. I didn’t how-ever order him but did order Raspberry in the end [ I couldn’t resist]. I know she’ll be watching the 4.00pm show. I only have to say ” Charlie’s on ” and she’s there. She only watches Charlie Bears and the food shows all the way through.
    Take care.
    Love Debby and a Big WHOOF from Bella
