His Stuff

I finally finished with the spare bedroom ready for the guest, I shoved the boxes in every nook and cranny in the house til there's no more space and yet i have to deal with more boxes because hubby's parents decided to install a solar panel in their house and they decided to clear their attic and some of the boxes they found belong to hubby when he was still living with them and so they asked hubby to pick them up. So now i need to hide them somewhere but i took up some ladies' suggestions (thank you) to cover them with a throw or blanket :)

This Koala stuffed toy belongs to my husband when he was a toddler, clearly loved from the almost balding body it has, he told me that when he was a child, his dad was rarely at home coz he's working in a merchant ship and he sent this koala from Canada.

And also this vintage toy car is still in its box was given by his father too, I haven't got time to open all of the boxes but it should be fun when I have the time to sort the contents out.

But i took a peek at one other box but i think most of them are books and more books, so i'll post again about this when i found something else interesting :)

and OH! I would like to wish my blogging friend Bee Happy a Happy Birthday and Happy Blogaversary! she's having a giveaway on her blog to celebrate, do check it out!


  1. That koala looks it has been very loved. I think most of us had at least one favourite childhood toy that now looks a bit worn, from all the playing and cuddles :) The Koala sure is cute though. All the way from Canada as well..have you noticed he has an accent or the odd craving for maple syrup :P

  2. Aw, sweet little bald koala. You wait til you open the rest and discover 12 years worth of train magazines or similar...;-)

  3. It's always great to have a peak in boxes,you never know what you will find! glad you have managed to sort the room out :) bet you will be needing a sit down and a mince pie ;) lol

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  4. Oh how fun Susan! It sounds like it'll be quite the treasure hunt going through all that stuff. My in-laws have a lot of my husbands stuff stored also and my MIL is always asking if I want to take any of it...I tell her NOOOO!!!! She has way more storage space than I do!

  5. What fun to see your husband's childhood memories. I'm glad you've got things under control. Yes, through a blanket over it all, put a lamp on top and call it a day - hee, hee...

    Now you can put up your feet and have a cup!

  6. I meant to say how cute the koala was, and that it looks like your hubby had a lot of love to give. Sweet...

    By the way, I meant to say 'throw' a blanket. My mind is going a mile a minute - maybe I need that cup of tea - or better yet, a walk...col..

  7. I hope you have a wonderful time when your friend comes to stay! :-)

  8. that koala bear sure looks like he has been loved.........kinda sweet.

  9. Ah!! Treasures from ones past...THAT is so great! I love the little koala. I bet it brought back great memories for your hubby. I don't know if I would take the toys out of the boxes. They are now quite a collectors item.
    Glad your room situation is now under control. Sounds like things are moving right along.
    Happy birthday to your blog friend, Miss Bee.
    You are a delight, Susan. I enjoyed visiting you today. Have a great day!

  10. Glad you got the room sorted out - what fun going through hubby's childhood bits :o) Scarlett x
