Today Hitty Joyful took Hitty Granny Estelle, Hitty Ethel and Hitty Moana to see the building she had in mind for the tea room.
Hitty Ethel looks through the window.
She is very excited about what she sees
Ooh, look there is already beautiful lace trimmings around the window, she exclaims.
Look! Hitty Joyful shows Hitty Granny Estelle. I do believe this has already been used as a tea room in its day. There is a little placard on the wall and also a frame for hanging a sign up.
Come on let's go inside.
They can't wait to see what the inside will be like.
Hitty Joyful tries the door. It opens and they go inside.
Ooh just look at this space. Hitty Granny Estelle says. It is small, but will be very quaint and I think it will make a lovely intimate tearoom.
Hitty Joyful doesn't hear her...she is too busy looking at the knives on the wall.
Ttt..ttt...she says to herself. These will have to go.
Meanwhile Becassine has been thinking it was high time the family moved into bigger accommodation, she was finding it all very cramped and difficult to clean.
She takes Hitty Cherry Jude and Hitty Annabelle to view the new property.
They all agree that it is quite suitable, but will need some decorating at some stage, but with the tearoom currently occupying most of their minds, perhaps they had just better move in for now.
They set to work moving all the furniture into the rooms.
Later that day when the others come home from viewing the prospective tearoom, they are very surprised indeed at how hard the trio have worked.
They soon make themselves at home in their new surroundings full of familiar furniture and items.
Becassine and Hitty Annabelle are exhausted after their day's work.
Hitty Granny Estelle and Hitty Carol Faith sit and have a cup of tea while Hitty Granny Estelle tells all about the tearoom she saw today. Hitty Madge is busy fussing with the sideboard.
Hitty Cherry Jude stands quietly and watches them all pleased to see they are all happy.
Hitty Ethel immediately checks out her new sewing space and is delighted...she wants to make a design board to put on the wall in front of her sewing table.
Myself (Hitty Patience) and Hitty Joyful discuss tearoom plans...
Hitty Moana checks on Brittany and Miles to see how they have enjoyed their day. They are happy listening to some music.
There is even a lovely little garden area for them to sit out in.
