Two days ago the delightful assistants decided on a health-giving stroll before luncheon. It was fairly cloudy but considerably milder than it had been of late. The air was fresh and invigorating as they set off with joy in their hearts and sticks in their paws.
The road they walked along was lined with neatly trimmed hedges. Beautiful trees spread out their branches against the sky, casting intricate shadows on the fields.
The assistants are very small but the trees made them look even tinier than usual.
Further along the road a reassuring sign reminded any toddlers at the wheel to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner.
The daffodils weren’t quite out, but there were plenty of green shoots looking hopeful.
Appetites stimulated, the assistants were scooped up by their chauffeur and whisked off home for hot bowls of nourishing soup, well satisfied with their morning’s exertions.
