Paddington Bear is famous the world over, having been translated into 30 different languages and sold more than 30 million books worldwide. This current batch of stories are taken from his fourth book; “Paddington Abroad” which was first published in 1961. It was written by Michael Bond and illustrated by Peggy Fortnum. The polite immigrant bear from darkest Peru, with his old hat, battered suitcase, duffle coat and love of marmalade sandwiches has become a classic character from English literature. Here at Jammy Toast, we are pleased to bring you some more of the tales which have made Paddington Famous the world over

There is nothing we love more here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite

Hello, my name is Erika and I have been here at Jammy Toast since 2012. I used to live with a little girl in Kings Lynn where I used to lie around her bedroom all day, enjoying the peace and quiet and listening to her mummy tell us stories. Then one day her mummy came in and took me to a car-boot sale. I had no idea what was happening but they didn’t want me anymore. A man named Roy bought me for £1 and took me home promising that things would work out for me. He was right because he sent me here to join Davidd and all the bears. I have been asking for ages if I can share the stories I remember from living with the little girl with you all and that is what I write about. So, here comes another one

Today we are going to ask everyone who visits Jammy Toast to just “Talk Shit” for the day. We ask that anyone who visits Jammy Toast leaves a comment on just about any subject they choose. Funny or sad, true or false, real or fake; we don’t give a shit as long as it is entertaining and doesn’t really hurt anyone. We ask you to do this because we are too busy to think of anything else to post – hopefully everyone will like the freedom to whine and bitch. The rules are pretty simple to explain – basically, anything goes!

Hi my name is… my name is… excuse me, my name is Slim Shady Lisa. You might have noticed me commenting on here from time to time using the name of “Just Me”. I have been a friend of Davey’s since about 2003. I used to have a blog on Blogger well before he started to blog and before he discovered these pesky bears. He used to leave comments on my blog and before you knew it we were chatting away on MSN – who remembers good old MSN? I invited him to write a few guest posts on my blog and we became great friends. I even travelled over to the UK in 2007 from Canada for a visit and we had a whale of a time together. Fast forward sixteen years and I now comment on his blog and he has invited me to write some guest posts for him. As the old saying goes; what goes around, comes around

So today, we continue our tour of some of our favourite movies of all time with the follow-up to last month’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo; The Girl In The Spider’s Web.

Razzi and I are not really great followers of fashion but we have both agreed there is something to be said for the new design beach shorts. You can never trust the weather here in England, so we can both see the benefit of plastic beach shorts – Cool for the sunny days but provide some shelter if you get caught in a shower. I promise we have not made this up, they are really something that exist – and they can be yours for just £22.42. They are definitely designed to cause a strong impression when we both hit the beach and are a change from the usual swimming trunks.
