Guess who has arrived at Cottontails!

He came in a special delivery box....

...packed in a lovely cream traveling case....


...He peeped out his beak....


It's Ernest! He's here!


Well it didn't take him long to make himself at home and ask for a cup of tea (in MY chicken mug, I might add)



Meanwhile, in a bedroom not too far away, Humphrey and his little friend Sylvain have no idea who has just entered the building.




I'll let you know what happens when they meet in the morning....

(And for anyone reading this who doesn't have a clue what I am on about, Ernest is a little soft toy rooster traveling around on his 'gap year' staying with various host families... He set off from his home at The Hen House about a month ago and Cottontails is is fourth port. If you would like him to come to you next, just leave a comment on this blog post - or any other Ernest blog post - and I will draw names out of a hat at the end of his stay with me.)

I can't get over how beautiful Humphrey is. Why is it exactly that his fur is like a mane? (Also sorry if I keep giving you duplicates - I keep getting error messages).

Hi Charlotte, I'm fine about Ernest spreading his wings to the US - he has his passport ! ( oh, does he need a Visa ? ) As long as the bloggers link back to me and keep in touch & keep him moving on.

I just want him home for Christmas !
