Return of the bear

Tom came home from school on the last Friday before half term with the class teddy bear under his arm. He had been chosen as Star of the Week for the effort he had put into his work. You may recognise the teddy from his previous two visits to our house (read about them here, here, here and here). This time round, Tom named the bear 'Legoman' and we were looking forward to doing lots of fun things with him during half term.

Legoman joined us in the car for the drive to Guildford for the wedding we went to, but we decided to leave him in the car for the actual wedding. The bear joined us in Starbucks for lunch on the Sunday though.

Legoman was probably expecting lots of fun, since we had such a good time with him on previous visits and I did, in fact, have lots of fun things planned for half term. Unfortunately, most of the family were ill for the entire holiday, so none of it came to pass. Ah well, such is life I suppose.

 Lily loves the Star of the Week bear and yearns to be Star of the Week in her own class. It is a bit of a weekly disappointment for her, poor thing. I'm sure her turn will come and then she will be a very happy little girl!

Since we hadn't done much with Legoman during our 'sick week', we threw Tom a little 'Star of the Week' tea party this evening as the bear has to go back to school tomorrow morning. I'm still quite wiped out from whatever this virus is, so all the food was bought. I just don't have the energy for baking this week, so no fancy teddy-shaped biscuits this time unfortunately. Not that the Podlings seemed to mind as they had a lovely time. Hopefully 'Legoman' enjoyed his last day with us. I know Tom will be sorry to see him go.
