Opal, Agathe and Min have extracted a message from the mysterious bottle they found rolling about in a tide pool…
We hadn’t realised that people who travel by sea still communicate by bottle post, nor that it is so efficient – far more than we ever could have imagined.
The bottle was obviously directed to our beach on purpose, because the message inside read:
Dear Opal, I am convinced that you would HATE to come back to a household overpopulated by Hittys, especially as there would be no block-twin and no handmade underwear. Could you possibly ask Agathe to enquire of the Quimper Hitty humans if they could find it in their hearts to give you a permanent home? It would be a great relief to me as I would never be able to spoil you in the manner to which you have become accustomed, sincerely your Carve-human
The Quimper Hitty humans did not have to look very far into their hearts to find a resounding YES!!!
The Hittys are overjoyed…this calls for a major celebration involving cookies and chocolate !!!
