Action packed weekend ...
I had an absolute blast at Hugglets on Sunday , and managed to squeeze in lots of beary chat with some wonderful people . I hadn't been to Kensington for the September Teddies Festival for a few years , and I was reminded what a fantastic day out it makes ! There is a great atmosphere inside , with an assortment of different rooms on 3 levels ; in fact it's beary Heaven !
"But isn't that a TinyBear ?" I hear you say . Well , yes ; the pretty little bear in this photo is called Baby Jane - and she was a surprise present from Tina Jensen , who had travelled all the way from Denmark to exhibit at Hugglets . Tina is taking an extended holiday to visit a few of the places I've been blogging on about (!) including Bath , and as you can see Baby is clutching her very own copy of "Emma" by Jane Austen :0)
A million "thank you"s Tina - what a lovely , kind and thoughtful lady you are xx
Just a note here to add that Friday was a bit too action packed for some of my family . My poor mother ended up in hospital with a very nasty double fracture in her leg and a dislocated ankle ! I was already intending to go to Cambridgeshire , as my Hugglets journey starting point, so I was at least able to visit her in Addenbrookes hospital . She has now had her lower leg pinned and plated and will be enjoying her Golden Wedding celebration this weekend from a wheelchair. One misplaced footfall on the stairs has a lot to answer for !!
