My cousin had one of those

I always wanted a Sindy doll dressed like a ballerina but never got one. I finally got  bought one when  I was about 27.

It really wasn't the same....

Speaking of it wasn't really the same - I wanted the watch from the Bond movie For Your Eyes Only.. the ad before the film said it could be bought in the jewellers down the road from teh cinema. I begged my parents to go and buy it but when we got there it cost £200! So naturally they said no. (This was back in 198? ).. having grown up and got a job with some money and the advent of Ebay I thought I'd go check out that watch I couldn't get back then and own a nice Bond watch now. So I went and looked it up on the internet and hey presto:

Christ, and I thought my g/f was the only one! We have probably nearly a hundred stuffed cows all over our flat.

Sheddy- I can't bring myself to give or throw any of them away, even though someof them are really tacky I have them stuffed, made of porcelain, metal, plastic, cardboard, etc...

All sounds very familiar, she has all shapes and sizes too.

We also have cow themed things such as cow lamps, cow rugs, cow mugs, cow plates, cow cutlery, cow salt and pepper pots, a cow ice cream scoop, cow toasty machine, cow money boxes, cow watches, cow slippers, cow pyjama case cow, cow hot cow water cow bottles, cow cow cow cow....

cow

cow

*slaps self*

It's all I can do to keep me head above cows. So far, in a bit to keep some semblance of normality, I've had to draw the line at suggestions of a cow steering wheel cover, a cowprint bedspread and a cow telephone that moos instead of rings!

A 5 speed racing bike, some barsteward nicked it a year later on boxing day.

Sounds like my collection! I also have a fluffy cow pc cover with a bovine screensaver that makes faces and different styles of moos- is that bad or what!

Hello FR!

Girl's World when I was about 9. I base my current make up tastes on the bright blue and green eye shadow that came with it

Another present I really liked when I was very young: a subscription to Princess Tina
