WOYWW - long time no post

Well hello there. We're joining in with WOYWW for the first time in ages. Wilbear is so stressed with uni work that the blog is sadly neglected lately. Although Horace and Cedric do their best to prise Wilbear away from study so they can play.

Cedric managed to commandeer the desk whilst Wilbear was having a short nap in between studying today, although so far all he's managed to produce is a mess.

Horace bought some fab new art doll stamps and let Cedric have first play with them, we think this was a ploy as the stamps came unmounted and Horace hates when the foam mount sticks to his fur. Anyway, Cedric is just happy to get a turn at the desk and seems happy enough stamping away and creating an art doll. We wonder what he'll make with it?

To the right of Cedric you can see a new glue pawchase, a cheap table cloth to go under the paper desk protector (£1 from the aptly named Pound shop) and a great new magazine called Daphne's Diary, which we ordered a while back after seeing it on an Instagram feed.

Anyway, we're off for a little desk hopping before Wilbear insists he needs to study again. Ttfn.

With love from the bears

  2. Well done, Cedric and Horace, for reminding Willbear that all work and no play makes Will a dull bear lol! Too much study is bad for you. They say you go mad by degrees.

    Thanks for your visit, and I'm glad you like my Zentangle card! You bears should really give it a try as it's great fun and very addictive.

    Beatrice is slowly recovering. We are still waiting for her test results but hopefully all will be well.

    Happy WOYWW,

  3. Oh, so glad to see my favorite bears back!
    Tell Wilbear to pace himself so that he doesn't have a meltdown (that way everybear will have a chance to play).

  9. Yipeee! The Bears are back! I've noticed a lot of people using art doll, fairy, and other people stamps lately. I said as much to my friend and she asked if I would be getting some. I said, "No, I don't much like people." LOL! Er... um.... I meant people stamps. But shh... don't tell but I'd pick Bear company over people company any day! Remember to tell Wilbear that all work and no play makes for a sad day. Be sure to get some play time in.

  10. Hi Bears - sorry to hear Uni stress is taking over the Bear household, hope you can all take a breather and have some happy time together soon. Off to check out Daphne's Diary - sounds like fun... Thanks for your visit, good to see you again. MMx #57

  16. Oh, I'm so in sympathy with Horace about that wretched stamp mounting stuff! It once got stuck in my hair, so it must be a nightmare with fur!!! Thanks so much for the visit earlier. What a coincidence we've been absent from WOYWW at the same time. Good luck to Wibear with the studying: it'll be worth it in the end. Julie Ann #52 xx

  17. Good to see you back and hope Uni settles soon so you all get more play time!! Helen 10

  18. Your bears seem to have a huge following, seeing what they get up to I can understand why. looks like good furry fun at your desk.

  19. Bleubeard and I were just commenting about how we missed you. Even the rocking horses were at a loss. Glad to know you are OK and well and up to your fun loving tricks as usual Pawfect post, too.

    Thanks for visiting all of us on Wednesday. I'm running late this week because of power outages, this time accompanied by loss of my phone and internet. Happy belated WOYWW from #3.
