The drop!!

Yeah!!!! The little guy from the other day was dropped this weekend in Cumbria. We went away for a long weekend to Whinfell Forest and I thought it would be the ideal place for my first drop for The Toy Society as it was heaving with families with small children! We chose a spot that was in the middle of the village at the junction of several trails - the only trouble was that it was very, very busy and Matt and I had to hang around pretending to look at the map for about 5 minutes until we could leave the toy without being seen!

We tied him to a gate at the junction and when we came back after about an hour he had gone! I hope he finds a good home :)

And below is where I really wanted to leave him (also at the same junction) but I hadn't brought enough stuff to tie him up with - it wouldn't reach round the top of the toadstool :( Oh well!! Maybe next time!

The whole idea is cute but the fact that people have to search around for them makes it even better.
