*Thank you to Be My Bear for our bears! Recently we received a gorgeous box of delights from Be My Bear, a company specialising in high quality bear making kits. Their company has been around since 2001 and they are the UK’s original Build-Anywhere-Bear company based in North Wales.

Then we all got ready, popped to the…
