…Ornaments. OK I admit, I’m struggling a little this week!
The ornaments in question are hedgehogs, cute little prickly things they may be but it was a relatively cheap option for the boys to buy as presents when they were younger. I just had a thought that a lot of you will never have seen or maybe heard of hedgehogs so I’ve found a link here to Wikipedia which tells you a little more about them.
You may wonder why I chose hedgehogs and not something more, well, cuddly. Simple answer – I don’t know! A friend was collecting pigs so that was out of the question and, at the time, we had a regular visitor to the garden called Harry the Hedgehog.
As the years have passed I have ‘decluttered’ most of the house but the sentimental side of me has resisted clearing out the hedgehogs. They still have pride of place in my cabinet, if I was any sort of class swot I would have taken them out and polished them to make an effort for today’s post in Mrs Matlock’s Alphabe-Thursday class – I dare say that some of the other pupils have made more of an effort, take a look here to be sure!
