I have a little visitor here who arrived this morning. His name is Ernest and he normally lives at The Hen House. He is on his gap year and is travelling around Blogland and is staying me for a week. I will then be looking for another kind blogger who will take on this challenging youth. I have been warned to keep the drinks cupboard locked at all times and I already know why :-) I have told him he is welcome but of course he does have to earn his keep here because as you know I lead a busy life.
Here he is on arrival. He said he had had a good journey but he appeared to be glad to stretch his wings.
He seemed to rather like my hanging rails and thought it would be a good place to do his daily pull ups.
He inspected my pictures closely and thought it was a good place to sit to keep an eye on all that was going on.
This was one of his favourite places especially when I was sewing but I have told him health and safety just wouldn't allow it.
He was really glad of a cuppa but said he was more of tea man than coffee.
He said my chicken food was really scrummy.
I insisted he also remembered to eat his greens to stay healthy but being a typical teenager he didn't seem too concerned about healthy living.
In fact when my back was turned getting lunch he found a miniature bottle of Whiskey and helped himself to a quick swig!
He has certainly made himself at home and plans to be here to watch the footy matches.
After lunch it was down to work so he said he would help with a bit of ironing.
He also seemed very keen to learn a few tailoring skills while he was here.
Please call back from time to time if you'd like to see what Ernest gets up to while he is staying with me and if you feel able to offer him lodging for a week please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org but be warned he is quite a handful :-)
