A knocking was heard on the door...
Hitty Granny Estelle goes to answer it.
To her surprise there is a beautifully dressed Hitty waiting to be asked in.
Why this is a surprise!
Hitty Granny Estelle welcomes the newcomer in with Becassine hovering nearby.
They show her up to the bedroom so she can drop her luggage off.
The Hitty girl places her bag down on the luggage stool and looks at her bed in surprise...
What? No bedding? This will not do. Perhaps they just haven't had time to make up the beds yet. She thinks...
She wanders down to the greet some of the others.
Hitty Moana and Hitty Rimu are the first to say hello. Hitty Rimu rushes over and gives her a big hug - she knows what it is like to have travelled in a box as she is the most newest member of the family until now.
I come over and say hello as well and introduce myself, telling her I was the first and that my name is Hitty Patience.
A little later she has her portrait taken by one of the roses in the garden.
As soon as she sees the roses in the garden of Rose Cottage and she tells us her name is
Miss Hitty Natalie Rose.
A perfect name for such a happy Hitty don't you think?
