Out and about with Valentine


So now you can see why I've been gathering small things lately!

Anyone raised in the 60s and 70s like me will be familiar with the stop-motion animation of The Magic Roundabout and Bagpuss. What a nostalgia trip it has been to rewatch a couple of episodes of these old series and remember the six weeks I spent at home with hepatitis when I was seven, lying on the bed that mum had made up for me in the lounge, and immersing myself in the adventures of Bagpuss the saggy cloth cat and Dougal and friends in the Magic Roundabout.
