I am beginning to find my bearings in this new land which I have learned is England.  

I believed English people were known for their refinement, but from what I have observed thus far the woman, Holly, seems anything but proper!

She wished me to pose for photos in the most immodest and garish garments I ever laid eyes on.  I tried to explain my reticence in exposing my shoulders and ankles to all and sundry, but she announced that it was me that was sadly lacking in 'cu...

It seems that when I was a child, despite the care with thich I usually treated my dolls, potential dangers were always around the corner.

I have already told you about the untimely death of my first childhood Sindy in a previous post, but it seems my Barbies were not immune from peril either.

For my 10th birthday I got a 'My First Barbie' from a shop called 'House ...

Adorable little Jane has a little bit of an inferiority complex, she read my post about her not being a 'proper' Pedigree Sindy.  Even though I didn't mean anything by it she wasn't happy!
