Hanging Teddy Out to Dry

I've been having a massive cleaning, tidying and reorganising purge in the house.  I really want to get the place in order before I return to work in September and before my son goes off to University (sob!)

He gave me his old toy bear to wash.  I hung it out on the washing line pegged by its ears but was perturbed to see it there, hanging unsupported.  I quickly took my dressing gown belt and fashioned a little swing seat for old bear.  He looks much happier now!

Ha, ha, ha that is funny, mind you it always seems cruel to hang teddy up by his ears so the swing is a great idea! Is teddy off to uni too?

Hi Julie. No. I don't suppose old bear is off to Uni but I will still have to keep him :)

Reminded me of when I was a child and my mother pegged my teddy up by his ears till I cried for her to take him down she weas hurting him but she didn't think to make him a little swing seat like yours!

Hi Briony. I doubt very much that I am okay! I have always handled toys with care and treated them like real people!!! :)

This is just about the cutest thing I've seen today!! I remember when our daughter went off to college - much sobbing then, but it all worked out! You will have many friends here to support you! x

Cuddly toys can look so forlorn when they are hanging out to dry, I think you do the right thing by making him a little more comfortable.
I hope all goes well for you both come September.
