Thank you to all your kind messages after our hail storm. We have been busy clearing up and getting quotes for the insurance, turns out half of our roof will have to be completely replaced as well as our veranda. It is now clear that our street and the next street on from us are the worst hit, luckily the rest of the village hardly had any damage, it started right at the windmill at the end of our lane (the houses JUST before it had no damage at all!) and charged on to our house!
This photo is of the hail stones that landed that someone in the village froze over night and I saw it on the news!
I have been so touched by the kindess of people. On Friday I was outside clearing up all the broken tiles when the postman came along with a parcel for me! To my delight there was the sweetest little box of sweets with a gorgeous teddy on the front with a sweet teddy notecard from one of my collectors here in Belgium to brighten my day after all the damage we had from the storm (thank you Peter) .
I had this sweet note from Lewis and Bailey , two of my bears that are in their cosy new home.
Since being part of the teddy world I have to say that I have met the nicest people. I just love hearing from people when they have received their adopted bears, it really makes all my efforts worth while when I hear how happy my bears make people. This week I received these kind messages from England and The States, Colbyhas the prettiest cutest face and is so cuddly with his soft coat and sits proudly on my desk beside me.
Lily is wonderful in every way, and I am thrilled to have her here with us. I will take excellent care of her. (Thank you Suzanne and Kathy x).
I've also been given some lovely awards for my blog, thank you Wendy for her Friendship Award and Lyn for the Makes My Heart Smile Award. I'm sorry for not being able to follow the award rules for now, but please know that everyone of you that visit me here make my heart smile and I appreciate all your friendships.
I will have a new Bear to show you next week so pop back soon to take a peek. Have a lovely weekend, Hugs, Catherine x
