We haven’t heard from our Queen for a very long time. Queen Ananasty was the person who helped me start our very first blog back in the summer of 2006. She was young at the time and the two of us used to entertain each other on Sunday afternoons when we would have otherwise been bored stiff. We would go and play golf, bowls try and find her socks after I had stolen them – you name it, we usually got into trouble doing it. The two of us used to go off and get into trouble and then post stories on our very first blog. Fun times. However, today is Valentine’s Day and so I thought I would share one of our old stories from back in those early days. These were even pre-teddy bear days…
Hello People, Queen Ananasty here. Today I am going to tell you the story of when we went to the cinema and coursed mayhem. So, me, Princess Chimpton and Servant Dave went to watch the Disney film Heffalump – yes Servant Dave is a big child who loves Disney Films. So the film begins and as usual, me and Dave start messing around making each other laugh, doing daft things to each other. Daft things such as I took a sweet and ate it only I didn’t like it and as I know Dave is a dust bin I offered him my sweet and he ate it, but erm… I forgot to tell him I had chewed it first hahah!
We did mention on the old Jammy Toast how we started blogging but for those who were wondering or those of you who are new to Jammy Toast you may be lost. So today, I thought we might explain the importance of socks on your head. In the summer of 2006, Ananasty – an old friend of the bears – used to go out gallivanting on Sunday afternoons. I would pick her up and we would go and play golf or go bowling or some adventure or other. Occasionally we might go to the cinema and watch a film, which if it was boring usually ended in us having a “sock fight” or some other interesting pastime.
Today, everyone here at Jammy Toast would like to wish Ananasty a very happy twenty-first birthday. We have known Ananasty since she was seven years old but during that time we feel certain she has learned many wonderful things. However, the biggest thing she needs to learn is whenever you give Davidd your laptop to fix, make sure you don’t leave any embarrassing videos on it!!
We have mentioned before about how and why Jammy Toast started but I don’t think we have ever told the story about how we started blogging in the first place. So, I thought today we might put that right. In the summer of 2006, Ananasty and I used to go out gallivanting on a Sunday afternoons. I would pick her up and we would go and play golf or go bowling or some adventure or other. Occasionally we might go to the cinema and watch a film, which if it was boring usually ended up in us having a “sock fight” or some other interesting pastime.
Normally on Sundays we have our Musical Fun Day. However, this week we felt it was timely to wish someone special a Very Happy Birthday. We don’t normally do birthday wishes because we have quite a few friends and we would get inundated with requests. However, this time it really is for a special occasion. Ananasty is twenty today but unfortunately she is spending the day trapped in a hospital in Manchester miles away from all her friends and family which – as you can imagine – is an absolute bummer.
In the words of the famous song; “Hello again, hello” – we’re back again with a totally new responsive, touch enabled design. For some time now we have been looking for a theme which has all the features of a traditional premium WordPress theme but which was also responsive. We wanted a theme to suit everyone no matter which device they were viewing Jammy Toast on. We now think we have found just that and, to fit in with the aims of Jammy Toast, it even has an “E” name. Our new theme is called Emode and should mean you will be able to view Jammy Toast on just about every device out there. Desktop computers, laptops, tablets, pads, phones – you name it and Jammy Toast will now adapt itself to be viewable on your platform.
Today is a bit of a special day for us bears because our friend Anastasia (aka Ananasty) is eighteen. Although she has not always been the best behaved on the bear blog, it is always worth remembering that it was Davidd and her who started us off blogging in the first place. Who would have thought how far this blogging thing would go when the pair of them started, that eventful Sunday afternoon back in 2006.
This week has been a little harrowing to say the least, the Queen went into Broadgreen Heart and Chest hospital on Monday and underwent surgery to replace her pacemaker that had stood the test of time, she got 7 years out of the little beat box and is now the proud owner of a lovely new 80-100 beats per minute pacer. The day before the op was a little getting to know you session with her medical team who we met at 9.30pm after a VERY long day of sitting around doing not much. Bleary eyed and really tired we met her surgeon first a lovely little man with a very quiet voice who had been in surgery from 8am. I introduce Mr Aoo, now I’m not kidding that’s his name and a famous little man he is (btw you pronounce his name oooooooo like when your scaring kids pretending to be a ghost) after a lengthy discussion about the lovely riots that were occurring outside and how we were safer inside the hospital we got down to the nitty gritty that the operation would be fairly straight forward, but because of the Queens medical history they try to work as fast as they can as her lungs cannot cope being ventilated and could collapse, he assured the Queen she was in safe hands and that her anesthetic was being administered by a colleague who had worked on congenital heart cases in German so knew how to handle a royal visitor. Exit Mr Aoo enter her new German sleep-master, he definitely knows his target audience because as soon as he set eyes on the Queen he offered her drugs, I guess she just looks the type!! The Queen accepted the pre-med of a couple of sleeping tablets and seemed fine about the whole pa-lava.
