Departing Friends

Hello again!  As Official Mascot for the Coldham Cuddlies family, it is my pleasure to announce the departure on March 31 of four more of our Cuddlies - all to the same destination.  Hairy Bear (the Bear on the right of Isobel's introductory picture) is going to a long-time, family friend in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.  Here's a separate picture of him - among the daffodils in the garden here at Heytesbury,

The other Cuddlies who are going to Edmonton with Hairy Bear are one of the Koala Bears and two of the Baby Rabbits, one Brown and one Grey, with a white chest.  That means Isobel is going to have to   sit down and get sewing again so that all of them can be replaced - especially as a Black  BabyRabbit  and another Grey one were posted to Nottinghamshire here in England last week.  We're getting seriously depleted - which is, I suppose, the object of this exercise.

She's been so busy today getting everyone prepared for their journey that she's still not told me exactly what being Official Mascot of Coldham Cuddlies is going to involve.  However, I would have thought sitting all of us down somewhere and taking one final picture might have been a good idea?  Maybe, next time:  I'll let her off today, because the weather was not too good, so outside pictures were not an option - and she's still not too confident taking pictures of us inside.  She's waiting to be given a lesson by a friend of ours, next time he is available.  Bye - until the next time!
