I love nice people so I decided to write a blog about one. I’ve never even met this lady.
A little while ago Kelly my sister in law commissioned some handmade bears to give all the family as a surprise. Not just any bears. These bears were made from my late brothers clothing, his friends and family will recognise one of the patterns in particular. I love mine. He sits on the shelf in the living room and I always give him a quick glance. Reilly loves him too and does occasionally lock him in our bird cage ornament,must be that one visit to the Zoo at the Lakes.
I think it’s a lovely craft and brings a lot of happiness to bereaved families.
The ladies name is Caroline Chapman and she appears on most streams of social media as Carrie’s Thread Bears. Since receiving my bear I messaged Caroline to say thank you and stayed in touch ever since. She loves Reilly’s blogs and I cheer her up with my John Rocha posts, he’s my twin. She is my biggest fan (I think I look like John Rocha and pretend I am in him in various photographs, you have to be there) for example …….
Anyway today I received a present through the post. I love it, not just because I like gifts but it’s nice like receiving a written letter instead of a typed one.
Inside the package was this little beautiful tooth fairy cushion for when Reilly starts to lose his teeth. You put the tooth in the little pocket for safe keeping while under the pillow and replace with a coin or whatever, good news for us parents is the pocket is small good for a pound coin and no fivers!
What a lovely gesture. Even more lovely that I know she’s been unwell and is supporting her sister through chemo. Absolute star and i’m super grateful.
By the way how the hell do we explain losing teeth to our autistic cherubs? New one for me to read up on I think.
Take a look at some of her great work you’ll be impressed xx
