Teddy Bears' birthday party!

Posted on 9th March ( filed in Blog )
We've been thinking: in an ideal world, which famous Bears would we like to see at a Forever Friends 25th anniversary party? A few names came to mind. Then a few more. Then the list started to get out of control! Can you think of any famous Bears not on our list? By the way, this is even more fun if you actually picture them all together:

Yogi and Boo Boo, SuperTed, Paddington, Winnie-the-Pooh, Big Ted and Little Ted (from 'Playschool'), Baloo ('from the Jungle Book), Rupert, Biffo (from The Beano), Gentle Ben, Bungle (from Rainbow), Winnie-the-Pooh, Bobo (from The Simpsons), Fozzie Bear, Sooty & Soo, Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear, Andy Pandy's Teddy, Nookie Bear, Mr Bean's Teddy, the Fox's Glacier Mints Bear - not to mention several Care Bears and a handful of Gummi Bears.

Now where are those invitations...

A few random Mother's Day facts

Posted on 5th March ( filed in Blog )
    Before you give your Mum her flowers and breakfast in bed on 18th March, amaze her with your knowledge of Mother’s Day and its history.
  • In the UK, Mother’s Day is traditionally called Mothering Sunday
  • It usually falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent, but this can vary depending on the dates of Easter
  • In Victorian times, Mothering Sunday was a day when women and girls working as domestic servants were allowed a day off to visit their mothers
  • Longer ago, it was the one day of the year when people would return home to their ‘mother’ church (childhood or family church) for the middle Sunday of Lent
  • Historians think that it was this visit to the ‘mother’ church which started the tradition of those working as domestic servants to be given the day off
  • Nowadays Mothering Sunday is the day for giving thanks to our Mums and to express love and gratitude for everything they do for us
