Today Hattie went with her Mum, Dad and Lillian to visit her Aunts and Uncles and cousins.
Lillian stayed indoors listening to the sisters chatting and laughing.The family had got together to celebrate a 16th birthday. Hattie when off to see what her cousin had spent his birthday money on…
It was an old Mini which he is going to do up. Hattie was very impressed!.
” Oh I love this ” sighed Hattie practising her driving skills.
” This steering wheel is very big but I am sure I can manage” says Hattie with determination.
” Mmm I may need a booster cushion, so I can see clearly”
Mum comes out to see what Hattie is up to.
” Mum I want a Mini” says Hattie.
” You are too young to drive Hattie ” says Mum
” I know but I am going to save and buy one as soon as I am allowed ” States Hattie ” and I want a union jack painted on the roof ! ” she declares
” But what about Toby’s boarding school education? ” asks Mum smiling.
” Well Aunty Kendal says that he’ll be home almost as much as he’s away, which is no help what so ever ! She also said I would enjoy going to boarding School being so independent and I may but that’s up to you!
I have to start saving for my Mini! How much does it cost to have a union jack painted on the roof? I’ll need to factor the cost into price and then I need to work out how many hats I’ll need to Hattify to pay for all this …mm I may need to diversify…” Hattie goes back inside followed by her bemused Mother…
“Yes I need to take some photo’s of a couple of hats. You can be my model”
" Ok I need to ask you something anyway "
“Right Hattie stand there! Oh those boots look very hot for this weather, would you not prefer a pair of Jj sandals?"
" No thanks, I am quite cool in these” states Hattie
" Can you change hats please ” asks Mum.
“Is that one of mine? ” queries Mum
” Yes ” replies Hattie ” That’s what I wanted to talk about “
Mum nods at Hattie to carry on while she sorts out the hats to be photographed.
” See , I have added some pretty flowers and buttons" She shows mum the hat "and I was thinking we could go into business together. You make the hats and I’ll give them ‘Hattitude’ with the flowers and buttons"
“That sounds like a good idea Hattie ” says Mum smiling " and what would you do with your share of the money? "
" I think that I would help Toby with his education “
Mum is very impressed at Hattie’s words ” That is so kind of you Hattie ! How would you help him ?”
Hattie smiles back at mum "I’d send him to boarding school until he’s 18"
Mum just manages to stop herself laughing ” I see ” she tries hard not to giggle ” You do know that he’ll have to come home for the holidays”
“What! ” cries Hattie ” Don’t they have to stay all year every year until they are released ..I mean finish at 18?”
" No” smiles Mum ” I do believe that they come home for long holidays. Maybe you could ask Kendal, she attended Boarding school"
Hattie decides to find out from Kendal and hopes that Mum’s wrong!
Hattie model’s for Mum’s new hat photo’s but seems very quiet .
But Mum can hear her mind ticking over, she’s sure that Hattie has not given up on her plan at least not yet.
“Well thank you Hattie for being my model "
" What are you doing now Hattie?”
“I’m taking these boots off it’s far to hot to wear them ” She states
" Shall I get you a nice pair of JJ’s?”
" No I’ll wear Nate’s red sneakers, he won’t mind”..
Just a note to say that I have reinstated the page dedicated to the wonderful red haired Sasha's and Gregor's out there.Please send photo's of your red haired Sasha or Gregor so that they can be added to the page for everyone to see.
I have also added a page called Hello, no not after the magazine of that name ! but after the Lionel Richie Song , have a look to see what it's about.
Much to my surprise, when I received my Dollydoodles order today, all the boy’s had their summer outfit’s!.
So I took them into the garden for a photo shoot.
Here they all are ! and they are , well most of them looking at the camera! I had to take the photo between rain showers and sit on the grass, so then had to go change, having got wet. But at least the boy’s stayed put while I got a few shots.
Here on the left and from the left we have Tristan ( one of the twins) Dominic,Adam and Tobias( Toby).
In the middle from the left we have Nathaniel ( Nate),Benjamin ( Ben), Duncan and Percy.
And again we have Duncan and Percy but with Zak and Ethan ( twin to Tristan).
All looking very smart in their dolly togs and ready for adventure during the summer holidays.
I am adding a picture of Paige, who I finally changed out of her Vintage Sasha dress and into something a little more play friendly.
She is looking very nice in her new blouse purchased from Ruth Hartley at the festival and a pair of white cord cropped trouser by Michelle ( snuzz1mich62) my sister and finished with her Rosie Bloom sandals.
Now this dress I was thinking of selling but when I put It on Claudia I liked it and now cannot decide.
I made a matching hat and will have to decide if It’s going on ebay or not.
