Ugly Gordon

Hiya,
haven't had time for any crafting this week yet, so I thought I'd share a story with you today instead.
As I said in yesterday's post, we were off to the Royal Aberdeen Children's Hospital with Willow for her consultant appointment. For a treat, and because I was in a fairly generous mood I let Willow choose a small toy at the WRVS shop. So that nobody felt left out I also chose something for Faith and Scott too. Scott got an alien keyring and I chose a wee soft toy for Faith. They had quite a large stand of small RUSS toys, the usual selection of kittens, puppies, lions bears etc and then I spotted the ugliest thing I've seen in a long time, and I knew Faith would love him like nobody else... so here's Ugly Gordon...


 I've checked and apparently he's supposed to be an Orangutan - think I need to watch more nature programmes, cos they didn't look like this the last time I checked.
But I just knew Faithy would love him, she's gonna be the one who takes home all the waifs and strays, I just know it.

He is so cute, just like little Faith. Orangutans are one of my favourite-ist animals. xx

Be prepared for a little animal hoarder in the making! :D
Hope the appointment went well.

Hope things went OK at hospital. Now that is one very thrilled little girl & her eyes say it all - funny it seems that little chap has come alive in her hands; as you say made for each other.
An absolutely delightful post - thanks for a little share of your family.
Much love

It's the eyes that does it. I think Faith has perfected the look too.

Actually I think he's cute! I'm with Faith on this one, although I have to say he doesn't look like any orangutan I've ever seen a picture of! Hope all went well with Willow.
