Things have conspired against our person during the last couple of months and she has had no time to pay us any attention here in Rose Cottage. We also ended up in quite a state of disorder thanks to the man of the main house 'putting stuff' in our home!
As you can see it was time for a clean up for sure!
We work hard, and eventually things are starting to feel a bit more like home again!
I am back to updating our diary while Hitty Rimu chats to me about the kind gift we received from the Quimper Hittys.
She tells me all about the lovely book received.
Hitty Ethel is back at her sewing machine planning some summer dresses for us all.
Hitty Leonarda is resting after a busy morning tidyng
Hitty Moana is tidying up the shelving unit and placing the little shells that Hitty Madge brought back from New Zealand with her on the shelf.
Hitty Mary Jean is tempted to start sampling the wine in the fine Kauri goblets also brought back from New Zealand by Hitty Madge.
Hitty Annabelle is looking after the youngsters.
Hitty Granny Estelle is hopeful she might have a visitor and is about to put her feet up.
In the kitchen Becassine Terese is busy.
Out in the courtyard the boys are playing, Anka is about to go shopping whilst Hitty Scary and Hitty Carol Faith are hoping for a bit of sun.
Mean while in the Rose Cottage Tearooms, Hitty Joyful is busy preparing for the upcoming season of afternoon teas.
We were delighted to receive a surprise package in the post today.
Completely unexpected and perfect timing for our foray back into all things Hitty.
A delightful card and book and little picture card from the lovely Kjerstin and Quimper Hittys.
Thank you so much for brightening our day.
