Synchronised Olympic Sitting

Health and good taste warning!! -You may not wish to read this post if you are of a serious or delicate nature!
My friend Bob T Bear (Esq) is having a little competition for bears in honour of the Olympic Games. He felt that bears were being left out of all the excitement and so has developed a new event "Synchronised Sitting for Bears". This is a highly technical competition requiring a high levelo of skill and bears all over the world have been practissin, I mean practising! The event has a gold. silver and bronze award so there is everything to play for!
Tonight, in the Mixed Media household the bears have been limbering up and practising their balancing skills. Even the bedroom bears have been joining in! They made a valiant first attempt.............

Poor polar bear mummy couldn't quite get her head in the right place and had a wobbly Fred bear sitting on her head! The tiny bears at the top couldn't quite sort themselves out and sparkly red bear didn't want to sit right on the top even though she is the smallest....

One of the artist Bears and Glitter thought it was very funny and wouldn't stop giggling!

Bertie was not amused and wished they would all hurry up so he could watch Coronation Street.

At last, with a final shuffle and scramble and with Bob for inspiration they finally managed to stack their pyramid! Yay!!
But what's this?
Oh No!! The bedroom Not-a-bears want to join in! I don't think they've quite got the hang of it....


Oh all right! I'm sorry I forgot you, you can have a photo on your own and the dog can join in too! lol ROFL HaHa Ha!
We saw this little guy at the Heckington Show but we didn't realise at the time that he was practissin.
And I think this bear was grumpy because we were disturbin his consentrayshun while he was showin off to his Canadian friend!
If you want to join in with Bob's challenge there's still time to prove you're as barmy as me. The deadline is midday tomorrow BST.

A pyramid scheme!!!

Looks like some serious competition for my sitting bears.

Time for me to try better begging, brow-beating, bribing and brown-nosing than I first did.
I feel my bears are loosing the lead.

Bear((( )))
