A New Year!

Hi There,

Happy New Year to all, hope your Christmas and New Year was a safe and happy one.

Well another year, more bears to make. Slowly getting started on new creations.

Recently I personally had a bit of a scare, on Boxing Day evening two of my fingers developed unbearable pain causing me not to be able to use my hand. It turned out I have a blood clot which is interfering with the circulation to my fingers. After many, many strong pain killers (I hate taking them, I lost a week I was so dopey from them) and some medication it is starting to dissolve, so fingers crossed I will be back to normal soon (I am going crazy not being able to work properly).

On a brighter note let me introduce you to the newest member of our family. Ralf, a 50kg, 4 1/2 year old, Mastiff x Great Dane. He is a very welcome addition to fill a very big gap in our lives from the passing of our 'Boof'. He is a big beautiful dope and fits our family like a glove.

Bear Hugs
