Menolterayshun; Operation Stuffy (aka 'whilst YAM's away the toys will play)

Are you all standing tall? No reason why not, eh? I stand tall... well my flesh cousins do. Me not so much, to be fair. In fact, I am rather dumpy. A little on the cuddly side. Which is only right and proper for a stuffy I suppose.

I am Gilly the Daffy Giraffy.

YAMum brought me to the hutch when she found me in a shop nearby after buying the flat. She was in need of a hot water bottle. I came with one on my insides.

It now lives separately and I am free from constant ripping of my hide to get inside.

A relief I may tell you.

I like living here at the hutch with YAMum. She's not so tall either, and a little bit on the cuddly side.

That's between you and me, okay?

This post is dedicated to Astro, jus cuz...


  1. Hmmm. You know I had never really thought about how uncomfortable it must be to be a hot water bottle container!
    Toodle pip!

  2. MOLMOLMOL I can truly say I've never seen a hot water bottle in something as adorable as you are Gilly. Thank goodness Yam rescued you from the life of being a working giraffe. We just love how Yam Aunty surrounds herself with soft cuddly stuffies
    Hugs madi your bfff

  3. I have two of your friends but not used much with hot water bottles not needed much here.

  4. A DAFFY Giraffy??? Now YOU sound like OUR KINDA GUY fur SURE.

  5. BOL! We already knew she was cuddly and tall. What? She's taller than us!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  6. oh you are a special friend what warms not only our heart, right? we have a hot water bottle lion... or let's say we had one... it wasn't a good idea to use that fluffy friend with a pup around :o)

  7. Clever idea not to use you just for your insides. We all know it's the inside that counts, but when it comes to having a hot water bottle in your tummy... not so sure!

  8. You do look so cuddly! Do take care while Yam is away. janice xx
