Sunday at Rose Cottage...

 Miles thinks it is about time he stops wearing Pippa's trousers and has a pair of dungarees of his own to wear...

He approaches Hitty Ethel and asks if she could make him a pair.

Why I would be delighted to. She replies.

A short while later she has made a prototype

She checks the pair for size...

She checks the back fit.

Now that doesn't look too bad Miles...I might make the straps a bit longer so that you can wear a little shirt underneath.

While out in the garden....

Hitty Moana is enjoying the flowers.  She checks the new roses about to bloom...

...and admires the hydrangeas.

Miles is so excited!

Everyone is very excited at Rose Cottage, especially Miles!  You see he has heard the news....

Hittyville is back reporting!   Miles is hoping to hear at some stage from Lewis and all he has been up to.  So especially for Lewis today, Miles has been looking for dandelions!

Happy Dandelion Day Lewis!

Yippee, yah!  All is good in the world.

Hitty Madge comes over to see what all the cheering is about.  Miles tells her the news.  We must go and let the others know she says to him.

Miles rushes in to let Hitty Joy know.

She is absolutely delighted, Oh how simply Joyful she exclaims!

Hitty Madge, lets Hitty Ethel and Hitty Annabelle know the news.

Mile is talking ten to the dozen to Hitty Granny Estelle, ...and Hittyville is BACK and I have taken photos of dandelions for Lewis and can I have some pizza please?!

Much excitement indeed!

Catching up and some house keeping.

Hello, Hitty Patience here.  Yes, yes I know we Hittys have been very quiet  at Rose Cottage over the last few months, with just the odd appearance here and there.  As our person is getting more and more household things sorted she is hoping she will now have more time for us to feature a bit more.  Of course we can quietly go along doing our own thing, but it is nice to let you all know what we are up to.

Rose Cottage has had a good clean, dust and polish today and we have done some reorganising of our home.

Here I am busy typing up my diary so I can keep you all informed.  Quietly listening to the phonograph is Brittany (who arrived in June).  She has been adopted into our family due to being orphaned.  Brittany enjoys cuddling her little teddy.

Downstairs we have had a bit of a change around and Hitty Ethel has moved her sewing machine table to the other side of the room.  She is currently chatting to her cousin Hitty Annabel and they are discussing the need to catch up on all of Hitty Robinson's adventures.

Hitty Granny Estelle is getting a casserole pot out of the cupboard in preparation for dinner...the last few days have been quite chilly and she feels the need for some warmer sustenance after the salads of the summer.  Hitty Joy and Hitty Carol Faith are involved in their favourite pastime...partaking of tea!

Miles is tidying up the garden having just fed his rabbit.  Looks like his pup has brought the paper to him to take inside.

Anka Polish is putting the deck chairs away until next summer.

Missing are Hitty Moana and Hitty Madge who are overseeing the creation of a new Hitty.
