Welcome to our latest journal. We hope it finds you well.
This past week has been incredible.
On Monday we had our first wildish club meet. Over 20 people turned up and it was absolutely amazing.
We met at the shop in Pateley, walked to a beautiful local woodland and spent a few hours exploring, learning, eating and chatting.
If you have been following our journey for a while then you will know that we have found the isolation of living and working in the middle of nowhere quite hard. To be honest, we've been quite lonely.
Don't get us wrong, we love where we live, our access to nature is incredible and we are so grateful for it. We have met some wonderful people up here and made some great friends, but as a general rule, it's been pretty hard to meet people.
Since opening the shop and starting the wildish club we've met more people than we have done in over 3 years of living here and expanded our group of friends 10-fold.
This past week has been life-changing. We don't feel lonely anymore.
In other news, our special edition bag went down a treat, we've only got 7 left, and we're off on our summer holidays for a week from tomorrow, so if you were planning to order any of our in-stock products then order today and we will ship them tomorrow. Our next shipping date will be Monday the 8th.
All the best,
Oscar, Nell and the BearMade team
