As a Mum, I look forward to the one day of the year where I don’t have to get out of bed before 10am, and my breakfast is brought to my by Miss A.
I try not to ask for too many chocolates or edible gifts as I eat far too many of them, but I wont refuse if they are offered. However I am partial so some nice shower gels, or pampering gifts as it gives me an excuse to spend an age in the bathroom.
Readers may remember that when we all went to Disney, I fell in love with the Seven Dwarfs plush bears that I saw in a Magic Kingdom gift shop. So much so, that Grumpy came home with me, and then Miss A bought me a Grumpy mug for Christmas to carry on the theme.
Imagine my delight when a blast from the past Care Bear gift arrived for me today to celebrate Mother’s Day, and who should it be but Grumpy Bear!
I had an original bear when they were around the first time in the 80’s. I’m sure mine was Grandma bear or something very similar. I loved her and she lived in my parents loft for years after I didn’t want to cuddle her anymore. The new generation of Care Bears are brought to us by Vivid Toy Group.
Miss A has spied the Grumpy Bear and “borrowed” her for now, so I think I may have a battle on my hands to retrieve her for my grumpy collection.
It just goes to show you’re never too old for cuddly toys, and a cuddly toy can have so many more meanings than just being another stuffed toy. What will you be getting for your Mum’s this Sunday, or hoping to receive?
Disclosure – I received the bear and chocolates free of charge but all opinions are my own
