Our little 7 year old (or maybe 8) neighbour Sara, is a real cutie. Ever since she was very small she's come to visit us. When she was about 3 she'd walk over from her house, walk straight into our sitting room, and just look at us without saying anything. Now she cycles the few hundred metres, often just to take Bok for a walk. She also visits the barn to play with Boo Boo (when he's there).
On Christmas Eve she arrived with a small plastic bag. It contained a hand drawn card, a tiny yellow writing pad, a bauble with some tinsel, two blue stones, one brown stone, and a piece of white quartz. I can't think of a nicer present.
She returned a couple of hours later just as Lady M was elbow deep in flour, making Mince Pies. They then made Jam Tarts together for an hour or so, before she left to share the delicious results with her brother and sister.
Here she is with Bok. What a lovely girl.
