As I mentioned in my last post, the VV family has been expecting a houseguest. Well there was a knock on the door this morning (and this time I was dressed ;) and the postie handed me a box.
Inside was this little fella;
Meet Ernest - he normally lives with Bad Penny @ The Hen House but during 2010 he is having a gap year and planning to visit as many bloggers as possible! He arrived with his own nest box, passport & bucket in which he is collecting little items from all his stays!
He came to me after staying with Pomona & Princess Bunchy @ Little Cottage Comforts.
So far he has been the idea houseguest. After lunch he sat & watched me add a few rows to my latest blanket square;
He was left in charge whilst I went to little sons parents evening - he even made sure that little son had his after school bun & drink;
Its been a lot cooler here in Suffolk today and this afternoon was wet & windy. Ernest found it a little chilly in the VV house until I quickly knitted him a little scarf ;
One very happy visitor - happy then to check little sons homework;
Both boys have gone to scouts tonight so the house it quiet :) Little son has decided that Ernest may share his room and before he left he took Ernest up to meet the rest of the bedtime gang;
Tomorrow I am off out with my friend Country Girl and I expect Ernest will come too.
I've been wondering how to entertain my little friend over the weekend - dependant on the weather, he may be off to see some steam engines and hopefully the seaside :)
Already we need to think where Ernest can head next - though I might be naughty & let him stay here over the Easter weekend so he doesn't spend it in the sorting office. If you think you can offer him B&B next - leave a comment on this post & between Ernest & Little Son they'll decide where he fancies visiting next ;)
See you soon
