Calling all bear that are sick...
Just kidding you will have to wait until next year to get fixed at the
Teddy Bears Picnic and Hospital.
At Urrbrae House.
For those of you that have followed my blog you will know we do this every year.
I had sprained my wrist when I fell down from the cupboard, when I was looking for honey so I had to be bandaged as well.
Here are some of my friends that had to be fixed up. Rosie had a bee sting on her nose, Harry had a poke in the eye and our pretty pink girl had a soar toe.
Granny and her helpers were very busy sewing up all the bears that needed fixing.
We were very, very excited to meet such an old bear. He was 97 years old, and so lovely. His owners wife came along for the day to show us. He is really related to Peter Wait, The original owner of the house. Wow he must be famous!!!
We said he needed a seniors card, and if he ever needed attention he should go to a geriatric specialist.
Every bear had a health check. They were weighed and measured.
Had their temperature taken and their heart listened to.
Then if needed they were mended, so no stuffing came out, plus all noses could smell. All ears sewn on, and then they had a form to say they needed lots of snacks and exercise. They needed lots of cuddles and bed rest with their owner at night.
All the volunteers of Urrbrae House were in period costume. The children played old fashioned games like throwing a bean bag through the clown mouth.
quoits, blowing bubbles, and of course they had to find Puppa Bear, Mumma Bear, Baby bear, and Goldilocks in the sensory garden.
At the end, there was a parade around the garden with all the children and their owners.
Granny said the line was so long she couldn't get every one in.
There were very beautiful ladies walking around.
We are are all patched up. I hope I can take the bandage off soon.
This year the hospital was in the Old Coach house.

This is the gum lined road that leads into the house.
Granny says she always comes home smiling form our Teddy Bear Hospital.
I'm going to bed early so my arm can get better.
First I had supper.
Can you guess what I had??
Toast, peanut butter and honey of course.
See you all next week.
to all my lovely followers.
