But no, it seems I am destined for some other purpose. My new keeper is Ms Krog, a secondary school teacher of a somewhat whimsical disposition, who because children at her school would show no interest in the "class bear" idea - came up with this instead.
The setting for my first adventure was a simple yet sophisticated affair that consisted of an afternoon perusing the shops on Gloucester Road, Bristol, one of the charity shops of which I was plucked from mere hours ago. Ms Krog has a fondness for charity shop shopping, as have I, so I'll show you some Points of Interest I came across:
Here I am showing my literary taste *and* love of revising some handy household tips...
|...knowing how to deal with teenagers is always useful - Ms Krog was particulary amused by the section of giving them their own plot in the garden to grow things in. I would be too busy worrying about being buried alive.|
|I heard there had been a recent dearth of tomato growing - perhaps they need to be by prescription.|
|I then headed to the local Scoopaway for my healthy organic snacks - for bears with lustrous fur.|
|Ms Krog introduces me to my new sparkly blog - none of my friends ever had their own blog! I feel speziale now - it even has a ticker!|
|To celebrate me and my new friends finished the evening on the balcony with a little civilised glass of something.|
|It was really, really nice wine. The glass came with its own accessories. I borrowed them.|
|I did not plan this. Help?|
And so that's it, my first day of my new life. I wanted to show you my background and all the fulfilling and civilised things I did during a brief afternoon in Bristol. Ms Krog thought I showed a lot of promise and I think that's enough for one day.
I look forward to my next adventure.*
* hopefully one that does not involve falling off a balcony.
