Never Too Old to Build a Bear

Firstly, a big thank you to Becca Pugilisi from The Bookshelf Muse for her excellent guest post on 'Show Not Tell' - a subject we can never be complacent about.

Anyone who is visiting my blog today must be prepared not to read anything remotely related to writing - you might, though, find out a little bit more about me.

Now that the excitement has died down I have been doing very important things ... in fact, I have been 'Building a Bear' in Brighton with my little granddaughter. It was supposed to be a treat for her birthday but I think I enjoyed it as much as she did!












First, you choose your bear. As you can see this is not easy when you have to give them all the cuddle test.

Once you have chosen your bear, just fill it with fluff - oh and don't forget to put in his red satin heart!

 
Now for the outfit and we all know how hard that is, don't we ladies. A pink tutu - what else!
 
     
 Finally, choose your accessories carefully - you know it makes sense!

  3. Oh, I'd love to build a bear. I would just feel too silly, walking in the shop with no child in tow!

    1. Thank you, rosemary. I think so - but then again I'm biased!

    1. I'm sure they'd let you - saw lots of adults in there who looked like they had forgotten they had come with their children!
