Fudge, Toffee and Caramel

I suppose you have been wondering how the citizens of Riverside are doing, and how the Hogwarts, the Periwinkles and everyone else is getting along. And WHY I haven't posted any news since June!! Well, the simple truth is that I have not been able to upload any posts, because life in Riverside has been busy, busy, busy. Another reason is that we have welcomed a new citizen and I have been asked to build him a house from scratch!

Without any further introduction I present to you FUDGE, the very first Biwubear to ever come to Riverside!

If you don't know what a Biwubear is, I urge you to visit Birgit's and Fluby's blog here to learn more about this special type of furry friend, as well as Birgit's special interest in dragons, witches, exotic miniature plants (with eyes!) and more! :)

As I've said, this is my new little friend called Fudge and I am really happy he agreed to move to Riverside, because we are getting along splendidly.

Of course he was welcomed by the Periwinkles and the Hogwarts at the train station, unfortunately I was not able to arrive in time myself, so I couldn't take any pictures of their first encounter for you. But I met up with Fudge later on. 

On his first day in Riverside he met a fat chicken while climbing into a pot of basil.

Then he met two more chickens on a bench at the bus stop.

He also had a pleasant little chat with Mr and Mrs Peanut.

Finally, we unpacked and shared some of the delicious Toffifees he had brought along with him. They were a gift from Birgit. Thanks so much, Birgit, they were delicious!! :)

Later that afternoon Fudge didn't understand how the packet had emptied so quickly... I wasn't sure then, but I had the impression he looked at me with the tiniest bit of  reproach in his eyes. I had to remind him that he had been very hungry and had actually eaten most of the toffees himself. ;) I realised then, that Biwubears are really good at snarfing up sweets, but not so good at remembering. :D

As Birgit has said many times, Biwubears are known to have a huge sweet tooth...
Which is why Fudge decided to have another piece of toffee for dessert, a "Sahne Muh Muh", to be precise.

*cough*... And a cup of caramel cocoa to wash it all down. :)

I'm really happy he has settled in so easily and that moving to a strange town has neither hurt his cheerfulness nor his appetite. :)) Look at him smiling while he's sipping his drink. :)

Special thanks and regards to Rosy, Fluby and Birgit!

  1. Aww, he is so cute! I hope he has now setteled in well and has already made good friends!

    1. Hello Emily!! He has become really good friends with Jemima! :)

  2. Wie schön, wieder mal von Dir zu lesen - und dann auch noch gleich ein Lebenszeichen von Fudge zu bekommen! Kein Zweifel, der Lütte hat sich gleich richtig gut eingelebt und fühlt sich rundum wohl. Ansonsten hatte ich Dich vorher gewarnt - mit einem BiWuBärchen im Haus sollte man seine Süßigkeitenvorräte immer sehr gut sichern... und noch eines: Die Schlingel vergessen nicht nur schnell, sie beherrschen auch den "Welcher Toffee??? Ich habe wirklich keine Ahnung, wovon Du eigentlich redest"-Blick in Perfektion... *grins* Einen Trost kann ich Dir aber aus meiner langjährigen Erfahrung heraus geben - hin und wieder eine beiläufige Erwähnung des Goldenen Buches vom Weihnachtsmann wirkt Wunder... und je weiter fortgeschritten das Jahr, desto mehr... *flöööt*

    Liebe Grüße - natürlich auch besonders an Fudge (Benimm Dich anständig, junger Mann!!! Das fällt sonst alles auf mich zurück! *stöhn*)

    1. Hallo Birgit, vielen Dank für den tollen Tip!! ;)

  3. Congratulations! Fudge is adorable and so are all Birgit's bearies. Be careful of his sweet tooth, it can be addictive!
    Oh, I love the peanut couple and the cute fat hens.
    Hugs, Drora

  4. I´m glad to know the reason for your absence was that life in Riverside kept you pretty busy. I imagine building a house takes a lot of time.Would you show it to us in one of your coming posts?
    Fudge is simply adorable! I didn´t realized how small he is until the last picture when he´s enjoying a nice cup of cocoa sitting on a SF armchair. What a sweet smile he has!

    1. Hello! Yes, Fudge is very little and thus fits into a Sylvanian town very well. :)

  5. Fudge is beautiful all Birgit's bears are very special. I am sure you will have lots of fun building a house for your wonderful new citizen lol. Looking forward to see more.
    Hugs Maria
