Yesterday I told you how ‘helpful’ the Things were when we went to one of our selling venues. Today we visited another, somewhere we go regularly, and I had expected them to take part in a similar fashion. How wrong could I be? Firstly, the weather was much too good to stay inside for long. Unlike the rain of our day in the Chilterns yesterday, Wiltshire was balmy and sunny. So while we got down to the business in hand our little blue haired friends were adamant that they wanted to investigate.
Of course, it was my fault! I began by showing them where we made the tea and coffee
They loved the colour of the teabags, and then they spotted the clock
It is very old, and they were truly excited, as you can see.
Before I could blink, they were off.
They nipped into the Craft Shop, studying the pictures
and some of the handmade jewellery that was on display.
However, they were desperate to go outside, and before long they had left us to deal with customers and went off on a mini adventure. They were surprised to see the Green Man
and wanted to take him home with them, but I don’t think he’ll fit into an envelope.
This isn’t an instrument of torture (which is what they thought), it’s just something to use on the cricket pitch!
This definitely won’t fit into an envelope, I had to be really firm with them when they asked.
However, they loved the view of the back of the house
almost as much as the view of the front.
All in all it was a good day, and the best bit was that they even managed to keep quiet while we viewed a secret visitor from afar
So, that was our day at Urchfont Manor.
