If you go down to the woods today you're in for a big surprise.

Because there's a good chance you'll witness a grown woman cuddling a teddy.

Splitting up with someone is never easy. Apart from the broken heart and the bruised pride there's the things you have accumulated.

What do you do with the 'love stuff'? (get your minds out of the gutter lads) We're talking CD's, DVDs, items of furniture, clothing, household items, pictures, etc. 

But this has to be one of the strangest.

According to a user on parenting website Mumsnet, her current partner's ex wanted shared custody of a shared bear.

She described how the 40-year-old came round to take ‘Bear’ on holiday.

‘When DP (darling partner) moved in, his ex came to my house to collect Bear who was going “on holiday” with her,’ wrote the current girlfriend.

‘He hadn’t warned me this was happening, and I was just expecting her to drop some of DP’s stuff off. DP did the handing over but it was all unbearably (her pun) awkward. ‘Anyway, I thought that was the end of it and she would be too embarrassed to ask for Bear again.

 ‘Today DP and I went out for a nice lunch together and, over the pudding, he mentioned, very awkwardly, that he was going out this evening, taking Bear, who is off on his Christmas holidays. He will drop Bear off with ex before meeting friends.

She continued, ‘I am 100% certain there is nothing going on with DP and his ex (or anyone else for that matter) but this has made me feel incredibly weird and uncomfortable and actually a bit insecure.’

Let's face it lads some things are best left in hibernation.
