So far our Cookie Connection has gone really smoothly, but this week it went pear shaped. It all started off well with a fresh new batch of cookies made from Linda's family recipe - Donkey Drops!
We set off in the early evening with our cookie bag pausing to pick to flowers along the way (as you do) before walking down the squillion steps to the house we had chosen for this weeks delivery. Alas no-one was home! So we had to walk back up the squillion steps to the road again, still with cookie bag in hand. Oh dear.
...and discovered a little fairy house in the bottom of a tree, so we stopped to ring the bell of course. It turned out those fairies weren't home either. Is there no-one home on our road? Finally we made it to the house and hooray, there was a lady in the kitchen who looked out and saw us.
So this is where it wall went pear shaped.
We knocked and no-one answered. Our little girl was quick to tell us to keep knocking because she saw someone. "They are inside Mama!" Alas the lady hid in another room until we left. We discovered it is a little tricky to explain to a 2/3 year old why someone might not want to come to the door.
Never mind - we left our cookie bag on her doorstep with a little note explaining our cookie project. We certainly hope they enjoy their cookies and maybe we will meet them some other time :)
Better luck next week.
