We're on a diet this year grin

From Wiki:

"Rabbit is friendly, irritable. He considers himself to be the smartest animal in the Hundred Acre Wood"

That's it. I'm Rabbit. hmm

I would be Eeyore which my DD has started to call me because I'm perfectly content in my gloomy place and always expect something bad to to happen because it usually does

durhamjen Fri 11-Mar-16 10:23:08

I'd be Owl.
I'm extremely wise, or so my grandson thinks.

posie Fri 11-Mar-16 11:19:00

I'd like to be Pooh.

He says such wise things but then makes everyone laugh with silly sayings.

The saying that most resembles me at the moment though is
"I did know once, only i've sort of forgotten." - Winnie-the-Pooh hmm grin

Ooh it would be Piglet, as he is always laughing and he is so cute and I love piglets

Nannaspain Fri 11-Mar-16 11:29:44

It's got to be Eeyore, he's so laid back, love him x

Auntieflo Fri 11-Mar-16 12:07:21

Piglet. I just love wee piggies. See how they can run! ears flapping and all.

GrannyPiggy Fri 11-Mar-16 12:27:19

I've owned and cared for so many piglets in my time ladies, I've bottle fed them, kept them warm near the stove, nursed them but never (yet) put them in stripy jumpers !!
No I'm definately eeyore smile

KatyK Fri 11-Mar-16 12:31:57

I'd be Tigger. I've bounced back so many times I could give him a run for his money in the bouncing stakes smile

jeapurs54 Fri 11-Mar-16 13:17:35

I would love to be Tigger - he is just so much fun the way he bounces around on his tail. The wonderful thing about Tigger is I'm the Only one.

Love Honey and Winnie the Pooh is such a favourite of mine and my grandaughters.

GeminiJen Fri 11-Mar-16 13:34:09

Another Tigger here ....."Boisterous and exuberant, Tigger is wonderful and one-of-a-kind. He eagerly shares his enthusiasm with others—whether they want him to or not" (wiki).
A few years ago, I had an operation on my spine which involved the insertion of springs. According to my nearest and dearest, it improved my bounce no end grin

Ysgf24 Fri 11-Mar-16 13:35:02

Well i would love to be Tigger, too but I guess I am stuck with Roo, the nurturer and sharer. But I won't win anyway and get to scoff the luvvly hunny, so maybe I am Eeyore after all ...

wormole Fri 11-Mar-16 13:42:16

Tigger...because he is fun!

mumofmadboys Fri 11-Mar-16 13:59:42

Tigger here too.He is fun and brings a smile to my face.

Tegan Fri 11-Mar-16 14:02:29

Another Eeyore I'm afraid sad...always have been, always will...

rosey66 Fri 11-Mar-16 14:04:07

Winnie the Pooh, I love honey, and being with all my friends

Maggiemaybe Fri 11-Mar-16 14:05:00

Pooh Bear - this is the best advice to grandchildren I've ever read (and I do aspire to being a wise old Nana)!

"If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together... there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you."

Maggiemaybe Fri 11-Mar-16 14:07:36

Oh no, Christopher Robin said it! I'll be him then. grin

Imperfect27 Fri 11-Mar-16 14:09:26

Tigger for me: 'Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun' all the way and the 'only one' of me ... my very first grandchild doesn't know what he has got in store, but I intend him to remember me by my enthusiasms and love of life!

lablass Fri 11-Mar-16 14:22:13

I am probably Eeyore but would like to be happy, bouncy Tigger

Galen Fri 11-Mar-16 14:22:46

The little cloud that floats over Pooh's head.
Because, I feel like racing on someone!
