Hello Guliver!

    The first of my guest travelling teddies has arrived. Whilst Bruno is off on his visits we get to host ten visits from other bears, the first of whom is Guliver. He is from Cambridge, which, as he points out in his diary, is a very beautiful city, famous amongst other things for its prestigious university. I grew up in the home counties and remember Cambridge chiefly for the Fitzwilliam Museum which as a child I loved visiting. Museums were usually pretty boring in those days, but for some reason I really loved the Fitzwilliam, which, if I remember rightly was all about Oliver Cromwell. But back to Gulliver…

When he arrived he was pretty tired, so he had some light refreshment and then lay down on the settee for a long nap.

     When he awoke from what looked like very peaceful slumbers, he was introduced to some of the members of my hug, who had been loitering in the background, very curious and more than a little excited. Introductions made, they grouped around Guliver as he showed them his diary and explained that he’d like us to write about his activities during his stay here. My eldest Ted, who is 54years old can read a little and he pored over the diary, very interested to learn about Cambridge!

 I think little Violet was quite taken with Guliver…

Guliver, bless him, seemed unperturbed!

I love the little rucksack that Guliver bought with him, especially the yarn. I must remember to ask his human, Frances, which yarn she used.

Gulliver bought his passport (as he will be visiting Germany next), and a photo album for us to display photos of his adventures, plus his diary.

He is such a sweet bear, and no problem to look after. My cats were intrigued and had to check him out. It’s not a brilliant photo, but here is Jiffers doing a double take!

Once he’d had a sniff and was satisfied that Guliver wasn’t another cat, he settled down next to him and went to sleep. Guliver is used to pets. At home he has five Retrievers and a cat called Sophie.
