Marmalade sandwiches


Fictional bears from children's books are the very best bears, in my opinion. Nowhere else would you find a silly old bear with a love for honey and the name Winnie the Pooh or a bear from Darkest Peru that likes wearing duffle coats and rain hats other than in the magical pages of children's literature. Those two bears were two of my most treasured friends when I was growing up. We would go on adventures together, just the three of us, sometimes in The Hundred Acre Wood and sometimes in the big city of London, but most of the time it would be somewhere completely different, somewhere we dreamed up together. Sometimes when I'm feeling a little down I like to return to them, two old friends that got left behind but will always have a special place both in my heart and on my bookshelf. That is what I did today, retreated into childhood comforts and went on an adventure. I better be getting back though so I'll make this short and sweet, there's a cup of tea and a marmalade sandwich with my name on it somewhere :)

Marmalade sandwiches are the best kind on wintery days. I need a duffel coat like Paddington. xx

I love you. Some of the best days EVER are those immersed in childhood memories. Pooh and Paddington are probably my two favourite bears ever. I was obsessed with Winnie the Pooh cutlery and dishes, my mums kept all the ones I had as a kid even though the pictures are wearing off now! My mums also got this absolutely gorgeous paddington bear that she's had since she was a kid, with this amazing duffel coat, I can't wait to give it to my kids one day and let them watch the programmes :) xxx

Awww, thank you, Emily! I'm glad you like the post, and share my love for Pooh and Paddington! :) I think my children are going to be brought up on these books too, they're too magical not too :) I bet your Pooh cutlery and dishes are super cute, and I'm ever so jealous of your mum's proper Paddington! :) xxx
