Tracey, there will be a few of us "Down Unders" there, perhaps we should try to meet up afterwards for a coffee or something? When do you get into London? And where are you staying? I've booked three nights at a hotel in Earls Court. I'm hoping to be over the jetlag by that Sunday. See you soon!
hi Peter and all the other TTs that have added coments.
Reading through this thread has made me quite nervous!!!!!! :wacko:
Don't be scared, Tracey - you will be fine!
If you are able to set up early, you might have time to have a quick wander around the show before the doors open - and there will be complimentary tea and coffee to soothe your nerves before the doors open.
Peter - I am sure you will have a wonderful time, and I can see that your 'treasurer' is going to be very strict with you so I am sure you will go home with the perfect bear. If you do miss out on your heart's desire, however, it is always worth asking if an artist will take commissions - many do. There are always solutions to acquiring just the right bear!
Thanks christine. Please come and talk to me.
Linda, I arrive on thursday 10th sept, Laraine and I are staying with my cousin in Notting Hill then on saturday I am off to stay with my friend Susan.
send me an email to
it would be good to catch before the show
Don't forget that all the bears will be excited too and will be trying to choose a new family.
If you do the rounds first, but don't spend, and then go round again to look again at the bears that were calling to you, you may find that a bear will have already sold. Don't worry, it just wasn't meant to be, and the bear has chosen someone else.
Enjoy Hugglets, I always do, but haven't been for a while now,
