The girls have been busy packing their travel bag ready for their big adventure 'Down Under'

Much excitement as they calculated today that there were only 'three more sleeps'  

Their human is trying to get all sorts of things done before she goes.

Valentine's Day

There was much giggling going on in Rose Cottage today...

It appears the girls have some secret admirers!

They got Valentines Day cards!

Hitty Helen R, was surprised to get one and proudly shows it off.

Hitty Helen M was also surprised, but thrilled to get one.

Hitty Natalie Rose is very happy and can't stop smiling!

The girls place their cards on the side table.

Aren't they lovely cards?

The two Hitty Helen's stand and admire them and try to guess who they could be from.

Happy Valentine's Day Hitty Friends!

An Afternoon Stroll

The sun finally showed its face today so Hitty Madge took the two Hitty Helen's to our local park.  

They were well wrapped up warm as although the sun was out, it was very cold!

Looking down into the park.

Chatting about the litter they found just the other side of this plant and what a shame it was that people didn't take more care of their environment.

This tree has been dead a long time but makes quite a feature throughout the year and is named the 'Wildlife Tree' due to all the different wildlife flora and fauna that make it their home.

They sit and watch the ducks on one of the ponds.

I quite think they enjoyed a jolly good natter as well!

Hitty Helen Robertson found some snowdrops. 

More snowdrops!  Hitty Helen Miller, leaned in to see if they had any scent.

Hitty Helen R found some very pretty yellow blossom that she said reminded her of sunshine and summer.  

Hitty Helen M found another flowering plant whose name escapes us at the moment - we used to have the green version in our garden.

Doing some more sitting while they watch some birds on the water.  There seemed to be more birds than usual, and some were taking quite an interest in each other!  Perhaps Spring is on its way?

In the distance  can be seen what used to be Oakmere House, of which Oakmere Park were its grounds,  but is now a 'Beefeater' Restaurant

Hello Crow!

The girls enjoyed their afternoon walk.

Two Hitty Helens!

It has caused much laughter and hilarity and a little bit of confusion when we realised that both our visitors to the Rose Cottage Boarding House were known by the name of Helen!

Hitty Helen Miller and Hitty Helen Robertson, thought it rather funny as well.

The two girls together.

Thoughtful Gifts from Hitty Helen R

We haven't been able to get out and about the last few days as our person has not been well, so instead we have taken the time to get to know our new guests and give them a chance to get over any jet lag.

Hitty Helen Robertson kindly brought some lovely aprons with her and took a great delight in handing them out to various Hitty Girls.

For Hitty Ethel she chose to give her one with little pictures of scissors on as she thought it would be the perfect 'dressmaking' apron.

Hitty Ethel quite agreed and thanks Hitty Helen R very much for her thoughtful gift.

Doesn't she look absolutely delighted.

Being the story teller and resident child minder/baby sitter of the Hitty household meant that this wonderful apron was given to Hitty Annabelle.  

Hitty Helen R told Hitty Annabelle that she thought it was the perfect apron to wear when telling stories to the little ones and Hitty Annabelle quite agreed.

For Hitty Joyful, Hitty Helen R gave her one with hats, as she remembered that Hitty Joyful has a thing for hats. It is such a cheery apron, just like Hitty Joyful, and she couldn't wait to try it out in her Tea Room.

Such a happy girl.

Hitty Natalie Rose is interested in dog grooming so for her Hitty Helen R gave her a jolly pink apron with pictures of little dogs and bones on it.

A more perfect choice couldn't have been had.  Hitty Natalie Rose also thought it highlighted her pretty features beautifully.

We are all very grateful to Hitty Helen Robertson's generosity and thank her immensely.   Apparently she has two more aprons to give out but hasn't quite decided who they will suit best yet.

Hopefully our person will be feeling better tomorrow.   Five Days of head pain really is far too much!
