The other day Jess showed off her latest creation, Doug, on her blog and I must admit, I was completely smitten. I want him. More than I have wanted anything I have ever seen on any blogs I follow. Now that's saying something. It almost makes me wish I wasn't going to France in 2 weeks so I could afford him (well, maybe not quite!)
The name attracted me at first. You see, my childhood "best friend" was named Dougie, or the more dignified name he has been getting these days is Douglas. Dougie went with me everywhere. I'm sure he even came to Hong Kong and China with us when I was 11 (correct me if I'm wrong Mum). He would come on every road trip, every hospital visit, every camp. He's not looking the best these days. He has started to fall apart. I even tried bandaging him up! But look at his little face. Is that not the face of someone who has received a lot of love in their time? I think it is.
