I'm home with my dear Granny.

Hi Every body I'm HOME
You don't know how good it feels to be home.
I could not stop hugging my Granny, and I whispered in her ear I loved her.
It was much cooler than in America. so I had to wear my scarf, and boots again.
I could not wait to go inside and jump on my bed and see all my own things.
Australia really is a great place to live.
Now don't get me wrong, America would be good too; if every one had their Granny living with them there.
After cookies and honey milk, Granny brought this parcel out that was addressed to me. I opened it very quickly, and after unwrapping the beautiful lavender tissue paper out popped this most beautiful little bear.
She was so glad to get out of that parcel and the tissue paper. She could not stop smiling at me. She told me she came all the way from Russia and the lady who made her was Svetlana Mikhailova. She is a very clever lady, because this little bear who is called "Te t'aime"  which means I love you, did fantastic work.
Svetlana made her out of Lavender Plush with silk ribbon embroidery on her head.
She is very heavy, and both Granny and myself can't stop hugging her. 
In the parcel I found 2 children's books with lovely pictures in. One story we can tell is the story of Goldilocks, because we saw 3 bowls of porridge. The other book is getting translated by a friend. I looked at those pictures and funny Russian writing for ages. 
Wait.... I found more... There were lovely post cards,
and guess what, something that is not there any more....????
A chocolate with a little bear on the label.
The problem is I can't show you because I don't have the chocolate.
It disappeared some where. I'm not sure where????!!!!
You didn't see me lick my lips did you? 
"Te t'aimime" needed lots of cuddles to make her feel at home here in Australia.
Granny and I are both blown away that Svetlana could be so generous, and give us this most wonderful unexpected present. Thank you very much Svetlana. 
her web site is

I could not stop telling Granny all about what happened at camp, then I was plum tuckered out. So It was early to bed.

I was not sure what T'aime  would have eaten in Russia.
We made lots of warm toast with honey and peanut paste on. With a big glass of warm chocolate milk, and she loved it.

We made a comfy bed for her, and I told her I would show her lots about Austrlia in the morning.

I can't wait to hit the pillow in my own bed.
See you all next week.

It's Daffodil day in Australia to day, so I have picked these for all my followers.

My thought of the day.

"The smallest good deed is better than the grandest intention."


  1. Phew, we're so glad that wee girl didn't suffocate while waiting for you to get home from camp! We hope Svetlana packed in lots of provisions for her enforced hibernation... Still, she looks nicely settled in now, so you two have fun together!

  2. Hi Wilbur, Hi Te t'aime;

    Maybe Granyy ate that chocolate, and that is only fair since you have been away for so long. Coming home is always the best, isn't it?

    Happy Daffodil Day to all of you.

    Heaps of Hugs
    Prudence ♥ and a ♥ for Te t'aine

  3. Good to hear that you are home with Granny!
    You are a lucky bear to have a new little friend. xx

  4. Kay Hello dear, how are you?
    I read with affection the whole story.
    Will go to visit the website of Svetlana, but the teddy who sent you, it is called in French "Je t'aime" is not "te t'aime" and how to write to say I LOVE YOU. We hug and I also wish you a good week. ,) Hello. NI

  5. The picture of you hugging your Granny is sooooo lovely - good that you've had a safe trip and are no home agai where your Granny was waiting for you and a new darling friend. That little lavender beary is very pretty - we bet you're going to have loads of fun together. Maybe she is going to teach you Russian... the first words you would have to learn would be of course honey, chocolate and milk... ;O)

  6. Welcome home Wilbur! It was nice to see and read about your adventures in camping, but my favorite pic is the one of you and Granny hugging. So sweet. You are a very lucky beary. Your new friend T'aime is very pretty. I am sure she will love to hear your stories and see your beautiful country.
    Have a wonderful week,

  7. Ohhh Wilbur wat heerlijk om weer thuis te zijn bij je lieve Oma. Je kan heel goed zien dat jullie elkaar heel erg hebben gemist.

    Geweldig ook het PRACHTIGE cadeau dat jullie van Svetlana hebben gekregen. Zelf kijk ik ook vaak op haar site en ze maakt werkelijk fantastisch mooie beren.

    Geniet ervan Wilbur en kay, en wens jullie een mooie nieuwe week toe...............

    Veel liefs,
