Teddies have a special healing power in our home, no matter if your big or small Teddy always manages to comfort with a warm hug. Back in January Kayla’s six-year-old Teddy disappeared from our Hotel in Disneyland Paris as we frolicked about in the parks.

On Frankie I craved rashers, I couldn’t get enough of the salty goodness and I still eat it to this day. I’m no longer a vegetarian, I eat fish, chicken and rashers.
