A Delightful Day

Me: What a lovely day we had yesterday. Look at you in the woods.

Nell: Yes, it was delightful. Well, most of it.

Me: We were so lucky to meet Mrs D who was kind enough to let us go into her fields.

Nell: It was very gratifying and most generous of her. Sometimes one simply needs a quiet country walk away from the bustle of the beach.

Me: It’s the Easter holidays, Nell. That’s why it’s so busy. Dave and Harriet even went swimming in the stream.

Nell: Yes, Mutley had a little paddle. Fortunately the sheep were not interested in Poppy, or David.

Me: Yes. And then you came with us to the station to collect our friend Shel from Canada.

Nell: I enjoy travelling and it is always a pleasure to see Shel.

Me: You are an excellent companion.

Nell: I know. We had a pleasant chat on the way home. Unfortunately the evening was not as enjoyable.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: Despite my recent illness I was left, yet again, to look after everyone while you went off gallivanting.

Me: We only went out to dinner. Just a few hours. They don’t take dogs.

Nell: All I can say is that I am never singing Karaoke with Poppy and David again. I’m surprised the neighbours haven’t complained.

Me: Oh dear. Were they loud? 

Nell: Loud doesn’t even come close. When David started singing “A Bat Out Of Hell” I thought the windows might shatter.

Me: Gosh! I wish I’d been there.

Nell: You see. This is exactly why I despair of you.

Me: Sorry.
