(the shot isn't at an angle, he was leaning like this)
|Much happier, amd he doesn't|
look like he's going downhill now!
He can be found on my Etsy site www.etsy.com/shop/PollyKay11
There have been quite a few views and some enquiries so I am not expecting him to be around long.
Here are the two new bears I have to clean up that I mentioned in my last post. I have named the pretty pink one Rose and the other one Mammy (that bundle is actually a baby bear!)
Rose is a bit faded and grubby, but Mammy is really dirty. It will take quite a lot of rubbing and brushing to get her clean. She has a music box that plays a lullaby, but I haven't looked close enough yet to see if she should actually rock the baby. She has a Chiltern label, but I haven't been able to find a reference to her yet.
I love both of these bears' faces, so gentle.
I am off work yet again, only been back 2 weeks and the sciatica and arthritis pain is back again. To be honest I really don't know how much longer I can do the job as I am on my feet all day.
Why did they have to move the goalposts for womens' retirement? I am 60 in 5 weeks so I would have been able to have retired. Now I need to be 61 and half to get my state pension. I have never claimed unemployment benefits etc and have always worked, apart from when my children were little. Now it feels as if I will be forced into the benefits system as I can't go out to work.
I am selling a few bears and dogs, but not enough to replace my (small) wages from the store.
Off to give Rose her 'grooming' now, look out for her on Etsy shortly.
