There is something about meeting a new granddaughter for the very first time.
Marley Wynn is nearly two years old, her first visit to Soggibottom Cottage where she made a bee line straight to my very own childhood panda bear.
With all the teddy bears that lay around especially for her in the cottage that day, it was either saying something about my bear making that she ignored all the other bears or maybe like me she fell in love with Tubs at first sight.
It's been a beautiful Summer with a flurry of visitors. The long awaited visit of our new granddaughter and new daughter in law arrived.
The shame is, long awaited visits never seem to last as long as you would wish. Four days flew by so quickly before Marley Wynn, her mum and dad were off again to explore Europe before flying back to Cambodia.
We had a day of grace before our grandson Jake arrived at the cottage.
Soon followed by our daughter Karina.
There were boat rides and beach days.
A full fun Summer of places to see and photo's to take.
Kites to fly.
A new bear to make. Here she is sitting in our cottage garden. It's been a busy Summer, but one that's been memorable.
Many thanks to Christine Sterling and her beloved beautiful horse Baron for sending the new and updated photo's of Christine's Soggibottom Bear.
I'm pleased the bear took her hat when she left Soggibottom cottage. I'm more than pleased she arrived safely in Arizona. You can find Christine and her dogs, Monty and Harlow just HERE
Our very own Miss Mutt, Freya Rose Blossom has been making herself busy over the Summer, unlike me she has been a constant blogger over the Summer months.
You can find Freya over at CAT FLAP CAVALIER.
We have again settled back into our own world of long beach visits, Freya Rose Blossom walks and spoiling Frankie de tabby.
I have been severely reprimanded for not blogging during the Summer on Soggibottom. Now hopefully things are back to normal.
SEE YOU ALL VERY SOON :-) XXX
