    as the title says really. i got a letter about a breastfeeding workshop i get to go to on 21st of jan. all good news etc but i have to take a doll or teddy with me to practise with! :shock:

    almost all my teddies are in binbags in the loft...i have 3 me to you bears on my wardrobe that are in no way suitable so ive had to dig out my doll from when i was a baby. the thing is 30 yrs old, grubby as hell and i swear its a lil creepy lol. i also love it to pieces. her name is kelly, i got her pretty much when i was born and have kept her ever since, she has some of my baby clothes in the box with her as well as an old fashioned baby sleeping bag and blue snowsuit lol. the clothes are horrible, dirty stained and musty lol but i might just wash them and see if any are useable as there are a couple of nice cardigans and sleepsuits. now i have to clean 30 yrs worth of grime off her so i can use her for class lol.

    anyone else got horribly grubby used and abused old things that you love to pieces and couldnt bear to part with? (my OH has a tattered bear thing thats currently on the wardrobe in babys room lol)

    lol ok so im not completely the odd one out, i'll take a pic and show you my Kelly doll. mum says that she used to often mistake the doll falling off the sofa as me and try to save her lol. also i insisted she be named kelly and then a year later my uncle had a daughter and named her kelly too which is a bit of a weird coincidence lol

    I have a baby born and a tinny tears (and a few others LOL) - though my niece has relieved me of them for the time being - she is not happy about giving them back so her cousin can play with them :-?
