Prized Possession

Daily Prompt: Prized Possession  http://dailypost.wordpress.com/

Todays daily prompt is to write about a prized possession, an item you were incredibly attached to as a child and what became of it.  The first thing that came to my mind was my teddy bear.  I got him when I was three years old, you can see him in the photograph below along with me and my Dad on Hove seafront.  He used to come on all our holidays and I wouldn’t let him out of my sight.  What became of him?  Well, like me he has aged a little!  He’s still here, he sits across from me in his little rocking chair and is enjoying his life.  He began life as a bright blue, although you can’t tell from the black and white photograph.  Now he’s kind of a grey/blue shade.  You want to see him?  Okay, I’ll add a photo of him taken recently.

My teddy is called Gregory, I still have him.

Here is Gregory, he likes wearing football shirts, he gets his clothes from The Build A Bear shop.

    You’re all looking very smart in the first photo – even Gregory, with his bow tie!

    • Emma I think this must have been a Sunday, in the days when Sunday was different from other days of the week. We went to church and wore our Sunday best – even my teddy bear!
