Lazarus! #87 - Food Days:)

The celebration blog for the Queen has been up a few days, and as she herself pronounced, "Work goes on as usual", I am getting on with my work and producing a new blog!

(For anyone who hasn't seen the previous blog on the Queen's monumental day - see here)

I was watching the TV the other day and apparently the 9th of September was National Teddy Bears day!


That got me...
