On Monday Little Leon noticed a post from the CHSF on Facebook asking for boys and girls to come and see Katie Bear, he said to Mummy, can we go tomorrow? Well Little Leon really wanted to meet Katie and Mummy said if the weather was ok she would take him to Leeds in the Volvo chariot.
So Tuesday came, Mummy packed Leons bag with some snacks, milky, water and a change of clothes, (just in case he jumped into a watering can like he does at Grammas house!). Off they set.
When they arrived Mummy and Leon had a coffee, well Mummy did, Leon had woken her up early because he was excited and didnt go back to sleepy. So a Costa it was. Niomi arrived with her family and then Myraim, Matilde and Margeaux, Jacob and his Daddy arrived too.
|Katie Bear, Leon and his heart friends|
So over to the Childrens Heart Surgery Fund office they went, Sharon said they wanted to do Fund raising Fridays so, Katie wanted some handsome photographs with her heart friends to promote her cause. Leon and his buddies lined up with Katie and Angela took some lovely photographs, Mummy stood behind her and took a few snaps of her own.
|Can you see Katies cardboard cut out peeping at the back?|
|Woo Katie what soft fur you have!|
Little Leon sneaked onto Katies knee, Katie gave Leon a lovely hug and he says woo, what soft fur you have, all the better for hugging with she said, what big paws you have, all the better for keeping you safe with. Wooo! Leon gave Katie bear a beeeg hug and then everyone else wanted to jump on her knee and give her hugs too.
|Little Leon is wondering when he can get at the buns..|
All too soon the fun was over, but Angela had a suprise for the heart buddies, she has brought some lovely buns for them to share to say Thankyou for coming, Katie had to go home too, it was porridge time for hungry bears and her Mummy would be waiting with a large bowl and a wooden spoon so she could eat it all up.
|Shake shake shake........ put your Daddys change in here!|
Leon popped into the office and helped Margeaux come inside too. She is lovely and looked after Leon very well. so well that he didnt drop his bun!
So, after the excitement of the photo shoot..... Little Leon treated Mummy to a trip to Paperchase so she could get some supplies for her project. Mummy settled Leon in his Volvo chariot for the trip home and he decided to have a bit of a sleepy and catch up on what he missed by getting up early.
|All this attention has worn me out ZZZZzzzzz|
So watch out for the paper on Friday 31st August, Little Leon, Katie and his heart friends are raising funds for the CHSF.
