The Day After....it seems the spell didn't quite work!
Hitty Mischievous surveys the damage...
Hitty Granny Estelle is dismayed.
Oh my kitchen! She cries.
Becassine tries to comfort her, but with Hitty Carol Faith joining in the cries of dismay and the gasps from Hitty Mary Jean, I don't she is comforted.
Poor Hitty Mischievous...she meant well
She just doesn't know quite what happened...the spell was supposed to 'unfreeze' Mr & Mrs Mouse, not wreck havoc in the kitchen!
She assures Hitty Granny Estelle that she will tidy up...but is told
Hitty 'yet to be named' bends down to help.
Are you sure we can't use a spell? Hitty Mischievous asks.
Best not to I think, was the wise reply.
Meanwhile the other Hittys decide it is probably wiser to stay out of the way.
What are you reading? I ask Hitty June
The wonderful book that the Robertson Hittys sent us of photos of the last 12 years of their Halloween celebrations. Hitty June says as she shows me the book.
Oh how lovely! I bet THEIR Halloweens weren't quite like ours! I remark.
A little later
Hitty Madge is talking to Hitty Mischievous.
Probably best you don't try any more spells while you are here. Hitty Madge advises.
But what about the mice? Hitty Mischievous asks
Well perhaps it is best we leave them well alone. Hitty Madge replies.
Well if you say so.... Hitty Mischievous has other ideas though as she doesn't like to think of those poor little mice 'Frozen in time'
Come on, you best apologise to Hitty Granny Estelle. Hitty Madge tells Hitty Mischievous.
Hitty Mischievous apologise to Hitty Granny Estelle and gives her a cup of tea.
Clearly she has learnt that a cup of tea is the solution to many problems!
Becassine is putting some final touches on the food preparation for the evenings dinner, whilst Hitty Leonarda is making sure everything is in its place.
Hitty 'Yet to be Named' comes over to also give her apologies for taking part and hopes that Hitty Granny Estelle is feeling less upset.
Hitty Granny Estelle says she still feels a little shaky, but is otherwise okay.
All is well in Rose Cottage....
But WHAT ABOUT the mice?!
