So far this year my decluttering efforts have been focused on the things I want to get rid of. All very necessary as there is so much that needs to go, but this month I'm having a bit of a change and will be looking at the special items I want to keep.
I didn't have a teddy bear when I was small. We had rag dolls, which I can sort of remember, but they sadly disappeared years and years ago. I've always felt a little envious of people who still owned and loved their childhood teddies and I can remember expressing this opinion once, just commenting on something on the TV.
Fast forward to November that year and my birthday, and the present from my niece was this teddy bear. She'd remembered that conversation and bought Ted for me because, everyone needs a bear to love and cuddle.
