I was really excited to learn that there is a film coming out in the autumn featuring one of my favourite children's TV characters (I know I need to get out more don't I?)
When I was a child, I adored everything Paddington Bear: the books, the TV programmes, I even carried a miniature bear around with me wherever I went. Paddington was my best friend, I told him my hopes, my fears and my dreams. I suppose he was my version of an imaginary friend. (Now, that sounds even sadder doesn't it?)
The film is being produced by the makers of the Harry Potter films, so I imagine it will be a slick production and from the few clips I have seen, I am already hooked.
I'm afraid I'm going to have to rope one of my boys into going to the cinema with me - I'm not so sad that I will go and see a children's film without any children! Do you think they might need the number for Childline?
