Have a good day all ~

Aw, I should have popped in here sooner.  How nice to meet you all!  Yep, for all my sins I think, at last, I can claim to be a bit of a 'proffi' Julia ...  I still make the odd slip now and again though! :/

Julia, how about this ... you are my very first Russian friendly person!  (I just haven't met any others Russian people!) So I am very excited to say hello to you.  Tell me, how is this done in your native language? :D

Deb, I am indeed responsible for the "only 15 with the fat belly" ... I love that description!  You've made me chuckle!!!  Thank you all the way over there in New York (which incidentally, my daughter visited four years ago and has not stopped begging to go back since!) :cool:

Marion, bonjour!  It is a pleasure to 'meet' you ici!  I'm afraid my Francais c'est trés dreadful ... it's a plus long time since I was learning it at mon (ma?) école, but I will tell you, it was one of my most favourite subjects because it sounds so romantic when spoken by the French!  By the way, I have a French maiden name - Hoppé so I think my ancestors were from your beautiful country.  (Which makes me hang my head in shame as surely I should be able to speak your beautiful language properly!) bear_happy

In fact, I was terribly happy to learn English because I always prefer songs in your language:) : English is much more musical than French, I think:).
Mm... For your French ancestors and the hability for the language, I can tell you that my grandfather is Hungarian and that I do not know one poor  word in this language !:D

Hi Paula, It is nice to meet you and it is nice to see the "face" behind that happy big spotted guy on your avatar! Welcome to the group!

I'm enjoying seeing that face, as well.  And don't beat yourself up about "missing" this particular subforum TOO much; it only just went "live" last night!  So you should instead be congratulating yourself on being one of the very first to post here.

Thanks for sharing pics; it's great to meet the face behind the bear.

Bear-faced - that's me Shelli! bear_happy :P

Great idea for a mini forum!

I've noticed that lots of members have popped their welcomes in here and yet I haven't bumped into them elsewhere so far.  So, I reckon this must be the virtual coffee house meeting place for Teddy Talkers!

I think I'll take a cinnamon danish with my cappucino! bear_happy

Hello Paula....just thought that I would say hello again because I could.
Sorry to read that you're not selling at Hugglets tomorrow (4th Sep)  I will be there as usual having one heck of a good time, are you going as a visitor at least?

Hey why has Fiona jumped in to chat with us?

Jane.

Hi Jane,

Not sure why Fiona hasn't signed up.  I have told her all about Teddy Talk.  I'll have to prod her again!

I didn't book Teddies '05 this year.  I was desperate to have a holiday and knew from past experience that trying to fit in making a table of bears as well just wouldn't work.  I'm not visiting tomorrow either because I have the Rochester show on October 9th and need to get some work done for it, rather than spend my cash at Hugglets! ;)

Fiona will be there though so say hi to her!  She's in Hall 2 and right in front of you as you enter the door.  Great stand!

Have a good time and don't forget to tell us all through BBN how it went! :):cool:

Paula . . . I was complimenting you!!  Yes, I guess cut-up is American.  It means mischievous or slightly naughty, but in an endearing way - at least that's what I meant by it.  You are very cute, anyway!!

Love your bears Paula. My favourite is Crumbs. We've talked to each other already, but I'd like to return the greeting. Very nice to meet you indeed :D

Many hugs
