Following on from the discussion or was it meeting that Hitty Joyful held yesterday, it seems that there has been a lot of thinking going on overnight and several suggestions have been put forward and even some volunteers to help her get the tea room up and running.
Hitty Ethel has volunteered to make little table clothes and napkins for the tables. As the seamstress of the family, she just loves to be involved with fabric which simply delights her and she feels she is up to the challenge.
I have volunteered to do the menus and any printing and advertising that needs to be doing.
Hitty Madge and Hitty Moana have said that they would like to add a bit of ‘Kiwi’essence to the tea shop if at all possible due to their knowledge of the beautiful country and also because of the lovely tea shops and cafes that abound over there. Hitty Madge said that they do some wonderful sandwiches, pies and savouries that she hasn’t seen here in the UK.
Hitty Joyful has reassured Becassine that she fully realises that she has enough on her plate running the Rose Cottage household alongside Hitty Granny Estelle and isn’t expecting her to do any of the preparations, but would welcome any suggestions from these two, knowing of the wealth of knowledge that the two of them have between them.
I think they are quite relieved as they were beginning to get worried that their work load was going to increase even more...there are rumours that there is another Hitty waiting to be 'born' in the wings as it is.
Hitty Carol Faith has volunteered to do any decorating, or hanging of pictures as she is the tallest and explains to Hitty Joyful how she has the ability to move her arms and legs into different positions...it is just that she can be rather unsteady on her feet at times as she is rather too flexible it seems.
Hitty Joyful is slightly worried, but then remembers that Hitty Carol Faith did reach to decorate the Cottage at Christmas time.
Hitty Granny Estelle and Becassine exchange looks over Hitty Carol Faith's gesticulations.
Hitty Cherry Jude and Hitty Annabelle are not sure yet what their roles will be.
Friends of Rose Cottage, the Quimper Hittys have put forward the suggestion of having a B & B attached for any visitors who might want to come and stay. Hitty Joyful just thinks that is a marvellous suggestion and wonders if any of the girls would like to volunteer to take on that project. After all, they have yet to have ‘proper’ beds for themselves, although they do have several quilts and one in the making.
Hitty Granny Estelle relaxes with a cup of tea...she thinks one is needed after listening to all these Grand Plans, Becassine quite agrees with her.
