Lincoln Bear


When we were out and about one day, I saw this really cute mouse and bear in the corner of a shop.


The bear turned out to be incredibly cuddly and so got packed up to take to Lincoln (kiddo’s nephew) in the US. We miss our family in ways we couldn’t possibly describe. They are always on our minds and even though we are doing a rather shitty job of staying in touch, it is not because we don’t care but that we do. It aches.

  1. The first thing he did when he opened the bear was give it a big hug. I like to think psychically that was transmitted to you and kiddo across the miles and Atlantic waves. (Dad got actual physical hugs here.)

  2. Julie –
    We’re coming to collect some hugs in person, soon. 😉
