I am having trouble coming to terms, with the fact that it is, December. While at times this year has dragged on at the speed of a geriatric snail, it has also gone along quite speedily too. So much so, that I'm not quite ready for it to be "twenty-seventeen" - excuse me for a little moment of arrrrggggh!
Right. Now I have that over with, we can move onto more interesting matters. One of those being this sweet little mouse that I greatly enjoyed stitching up a little while ago. She's tiny, she's adorable and there's a little air of Beatrix Potter about her....I call her Mrs. Tiffin.
She's a happy little sugar mouse, there are always crumbs about her little nose and mouth...mostly from cookies and cakes but she does sometimes indulge in a cheese sandwich and cup of tea. She has a whole tribe of children, so many she has lost count and her husband Mister Mice is fond of a pint at the local pub...something Mrs. Tiffin still isn't quite sure about but that's Mister Mice for you! Mrs. Tiffin happily spends her evenings knitting wee socks for all her offspring...there are a LOT of feet to keep warm! Secretly, Mrs. Tiffin harbours ambitions to start a cottage industry business...Mister Mice thinks that yarn balls made of cheese would be a top seller but Mrs. Tiffin isn't so sure....
Mrs. Tiffin is visiting the Dolly Henry crew for a much needed and well deserved vacation!
I said she could stay, as long as she promises not to sneak too much plum pudding.
