Hello everyone :wavey:

For those who don't already know me: hi! :hi: I'm Persephone the Therapy Penguin. I am the (semi-)official emotional support teddy bear of golden oldie TSR user, TLG TLG loves me very much and I am very precious to her :yep: She takes me places and introduces me to VIPs within her life

I arrived mysteriously on TLG's doorstep just over a year ago in a brown paper package (sadly not tied up with string :sad: ). We believe I am a baby emperor penguin from Antarctica but I don't remember much about my time before I arrived at TLG's :iiam:

Spoiler:
Show
I do have a label that says 'Made in China' :ninja:


My D.O.B. is 31st May 2019 (which, incidentally, was the 21-year anniversary of Geri leaving the Spice Girls :cry2: :sadnod: :fyi: ). So I am 1 years old! Even though I am a very young Therapy Penguin who is still adjusting to her new surroundings, I have already had some adventures with TLG, including attending the Edinburgh Military Tattoo Festival :yep: That was lots of fun, albeit very noisy :eek:

ITT (In This Thread), I will record my summer adventures with my pals Calliope the Narwhal, Esio Trot the Nodding Tortoise, and Hildegard the Hippo :awesome: :awesome: :awesome: :awesome: These are the things we are hoping to do over the summer:

1. Je parlerai le franglais avec laurawatt (I will speak Franglais with Laura). This is so that TLG can brush up her French in preparation for gaining a French brother-in-law :pierre:
1a. We may also brush up on TLG's Italian conversational skills if there is time

2. Acquire suitable penguin-sized beach outfits :cool:

3. Learn more about how to be a British Summertime Therapy Penguin. This includes:
3a. Attending a BBQ (which may or may not be spoilt by rain!)
3b. Complain about the weather even if it is nice :yep:
3c. Learn how to mix the perfect Pimms drink for TLG*** :ahee:
3d. Go to a beach (weather/covid-permitting)
3e. Learn more about the Royal Family :awesome:
3f. Watch/listen to some BBC Proms

*** TLG says I am too young to drink the Pimms myself

4. Go for walks with TLG ideally at least 3 times a week, so that TLG has a change of scene, some fresh air, and gets some exercise :yep:

5. TLG's best friend has had a baby so that means I am now Aunty Persephone! I will spend the summer learning about what being an aunty entails and giving it a go! :love:

6. Help TLG learn to cook some more Sri Lankan dishes :bhangra:

7. Play the piano with TLG :musicus:

8. Take lots of selfies with TLG to help her feel less self-conscious about sharing photos of herself on here I aim to take some with Important London Landmarks too :yep:


All suggestions for tasks to do over the summer are welcome! I hope you will enjoy following my adventures (Random Capitalisations for Emphasis included!)

TLG has only taken one photo so far of what she's made, because the results haven't always been that photo-tastic :ninja: We will post a photo of some chilli paneer soon though :drool:

OK so chilli paneer is more Indian than Sri Lankan, but shhhhh


:bhangra:

Ahhhh us cuddly toys don't do tags otherwise people would get billions of notifications all the time Glad to have you on this thread though - feel free to chip in whenever suits :hugs:

Very happy to be tagged.

For learning about the Royal Family, I'd recommend a very detailed documentary series the BBC ran a years back called The Royale Family. :yes:
