    thanks for sharing this.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Soooo cute! Thanks for sharing.

    When my granddaughter was 2 she fell in love with a large stuffed penguin we saw at a store. It came up to her shoulder. Of course we had to get it for her next birthday. (But in the weeks between buying it and giving it to her, hubby and I had a ball placing it in various places around our house to surprise each other!) She named it George. Five years later he's still a popular toy.

    I love it!

    And "Teacup" what a cute story - you should write that down and give it to your GD when she's older.

    I can't think of too many commercials that are any good on our stations here in the US. Some are just so ridiculous.

    A little background to John Lewis. The stores are owned by the employees. It's actually called John Lewis Partnership and all employees are partners. They are a very good company to work for and also stock great merchandise. They have good customer service and a great Christmas Ad every year.

    It is very cute. Too bad so many items were sold out. I saw a couple I would have liked. Happy New Year!

    Awwww...that's cute. I like the AFLAC ads with the duck...and they had one some years ago with a goat that kept saying, "Nah, nah,nah, nah."
