My favourite childhood toy
Em from A Mummy Too has asked us post photos of our favourite childhood toys, so here is mine. She is a teddy called Anne, about 15 cm tall, purchased with my own pocket money in 1978 when we were visiting relatives in Dunblane.
At one point in my early teens, this toy was almost given to a charity shop after my mum persuaded me I was too old for teddies. Fortunately, my sister Lucy put the teddy to one side until I came to my senses.
I used to take Anne everywhere with me, until I was at university and accidentally left her in France and then decided she was better off staying at home. I once made her a little gathered skirt, but that is long since lost. I might make her another one.
