BIRTHDAY BEAR CHILLS OUT

It was my friend, Helen's birthday and our Birthday Bear Group went to Sunnybank Hotel to celebrate. Helen and Paul recently went for a holiday to the fishing village of Burrim Heads north of Brisbane about four hours drive.  They went there to rest and for Paul to recover after his last lot of Cancer treatment. 
Helen enjoyed relaxing and eating chocolate biscuits. So Bear came to the birthday dinner looking very relaxed and enjoying a view of the sea from the window on her deckchair. 'TmTams' are a delicious Chocolate biscuits/cookies.

Mary did a good job of dressing Bear and Helen was wishing she could be so relaxed again. It is not easy for her watching and helping her husband through this difficult time of fighting off the ravages of mesothelioma.

We hope Birthday Bear bought a little bit of cheer to your birthday. Enjoy the TimTams.
