Want a chance to win a Rosey Day ted? Sure you do!

This is Hardy.  Say “hello there” Hardy :o)
Teddy Bear and Friends are giving one lucky reader the chance to win Hardy!  All you need to do is fill in the following form - which you can find on page 41 of the Winter 2010 edition - and send it in to the address given on the form...
So, what are you waiting for :o)

Teddy Bear and Friends Winter 2010 issue: I’m in it!! YAH

Some things just never get old.. no matter how much they are repeated they remain full of WIN!  Hugs from friends, the smell of coffee brewing, the first camellia of the season... and seeing my little ted’s in print :o) :o) you can imagine how thrilled I was when I saw the familiar A4 envelope slide under the gate and the realization of what it contained dawned on me lol!!  I think I had that baby ripped open, and my nose buried in the magazine in about 5.76 seconds flat <3

A few more seconds more and I was reading the article in question, aptly named “Good things come in small packages” and  written by the lovely Felicia Hymer (AKA The Bear Scout).  My little ted’s can be found a few pages into the story on pages 40 and 41

Coincidentally the ted of mine pictured - Ellory - has his head buried in a good read too :oP

I am also waiting on a hard copy of the current Teddy Bear Review, that has an article with me in it too *so excited* but never fear that all this attention will give me a big head... as you can see, our Louise made it quite clear that her beauty routine was of far more import, and interest for that matter, than my excited babble about magazines.  Nothing like a Siamese to bring a girl back down to earth hey ROFL!

The protective properties of the packing peanut...

Some days, laughter can be the best medicine ... and with the curve ball** that was recently thrown us here at Chateau Teddy, it was just what the doctor ordered :o)  Friday morning I wander out to the kitchen all yawny and sleepy eyed to be greeted by a parcel waiting on the kitchen table.  A big one!   My bleary brain instantly went into overdrive trying to remember what on earth I had ordered that could possibly arrive in such a big parcel... only to screech to a surprised halt when I saw the sender and realized that the huge box contained my new (but small) shading pens!   WOOT :o)

....and double bonus, there would be enough extra packing in this baby to send off at least 4 teds in soft cushiony comfort....why yes, I do do enough internet shopping that I hardly ever need to buy packing peanuts *hehe*, nothing wrong with that ;o)  move along, nothing to see here *giggles*

...and there wasn’t much to see in the box either LOL!  Hows this for a packing FAIL?!?
One poor, solitary little packing peanut rattling around in a box way too big for the pens it contains... poor thing took a right beating too :o(  It’s not quite flat, but it’s definitely seen better days...

I don’t know - is it a random escapee that was never meant to be there.. does the seller have a spectacularly miserly packing peanut policy...?  It's a mystery that will likely remain unanswered, but despite our friend the peanuts sorry lack of friends and diminutive size, it did a good job :o)  My pens are in perfect condition... can’t wait to have a play with these babies! 

Not to mention it gave me a good laugh too, which is always a bonus! 

**the12” extended version**
Cycling to work monday last, to avoid crashing into a right turning car that didn’t see him, Ric slammed on his brakes, flew over his handlebars, and hit the road hard enough to cause multiple breaks in his collar bone and hair line fractures in the radial head of his left elbow OUCH...  He is recovering well from his surgery though, and we all realize just how incredibly lucky we are.. the cracks and gouges in his bike helmet *shudder* .. not good *shakes head* not good at all!  SO Dicky has now racked up one more broken collar bone than Lance Armstrong, but 7 less than Cadel Evans - just quietly I prefer Lances’s stats ;o)
