Harry the diamond class bear

After weeks, no months, of near-tears over the absence of Harry, the diamond class bear, coming home with us for the weekend, Caitlin has her claws on the coveted fur ball. For. A. Whole. Week.

As luck would have it, her turn has fallen at half term. So the challenge is to see if we can do better than the other school kids who've had the bear and taken him to:

- the park
- the supermarket
- a petting farm
- an Easter egg hunt

I've got a whole week. So far, on day 2, he's been pictured on the Tube, at HMS Belfast, on London Bridge and at a Mini Makers Imagination Faire in Oxo Tower Wharf. 

I'm exhausted. 

And Caitlin's in love. 

Asked about why she loves Harry so much prompted the response: "I get to do really exciting things with him". 

I think I've shot myself in the foot there. Days 3 to 7 might well be "Harry chilling at home". 


  1. Courrier him to me! One of my friends sent me her 4 year old's Flat Stanley, and we took pics of him with the huge Marina Bay building behind him, which was, I have to say, really quite cool. (And then I put him in the swimming pool and found out he wasn't waterproof. Oooops.) xx

    1. That's genius The Reluctant Launderer! He's in the post (ha ha!) xx
