WE'RE ALL JUST WAITING TO BE FOUND...
Today Ruth Hogan is sharing with us one of her beloved curiosities.. A Lonesome Panda.
Since starting my novel I have become the proud owner of a large collection of single gloves. It has convinced of the need to resurrect that simple but effect device used by most mothers of school children when I was at school – gloves attached to either end of a long piece of wool threaded down each sleeve of your coat. I never lost a single glove! This little panda has such a cheerful face and I found her on yet another dog walk next to some iron railings.
