My teddybear is still around, but only just - he's very fragile and falling to pieces. His name is Edward, he's 65 and was bought from Hamleys when I was first expected - he's unusual, being grey mohair and had felt pads, button eyes and a proper pointy stitched nose. Ma told me he had a Steiff ear tag but when I was little I persuaded Pa to cut it out with metal snippers as I didn't like my bear having an ear tag like the cows on our farm.
Think we have a wasps' nest above our landing window - they don't seem to be causing a problem so we're leaving them to get on with their lives. All the wasps except the queen will die when winter comes and next spring the queen will build a new nest. Maybe she'll find somewhere else to do it.
