A weekend up North!

Its been another super busy weekend for me!

Friday morning me, Mum and Auntie Val travelled up the M1 to visit my Cousin Ray (Val's son) Ray lives in North Yorkshire, very convenient for us as its only 40 minutes away from Sheffield! So we managed to kill two birds with one stone, pack in a family visit and a bear show!

Ray really looked after us all weekend, he cooked, drove us around and put up with me taking over his living room table with bear bits and constantly pinching his laptop!

We had such a lovely time, its just a pity it went by so quick.

Here's a few pictures from the weekend......

York Minster Cathedral
Totally stunning! We didn't have long in York so didn't get to look inside,
but a trip back is earmarked for our next visit

Mum, Val and Ray

Treasurer's House
Not really sure what this place was because it was shut by the time we walked past
but it looked so pretty all lit up


This little chap was one of the last minute cutie's
I managed to finish before the show but not put on the preview
(he has found a home)

Another little one
(he has found a home too)

Here's our table at The Great Yorkshire Teddy Bear Event

And a close up of the bears, mice and my train, its a real working train that drove me mad going round and round all day!

As usual the fair was brilliant, Katherine does a amazing job of organising the show and we are all looking forward to visiting again next year.

  1. That looks like such fun! Family and bear friends, bears and buildings. Nice table too! Wish I could have been there but alas, I am still too far away for that sort of spur of the moment jaunt! And as usual, the bears and mice are just eat'em up cute!
