Nell: Look at David!
Me: How gorgeous. Darling Dave.
Nell: David is eavesdropping. Harriet told him to because he is tall enough to see through the window.
Me: Surely not. He is just looking in. Bless him.
Nell: Poppy, Mutley and I were having a Board Meeting in the living room and that naughty animal was listening in.
Me: What do you mean a Board Meeting?
Nell: You don’t think Corner Cottage just runs itself do you?
Me: I didn’t know we had a board.
Nell: Yes. Poppy, Mutley and I are the directors. And Kev too, of course.
Me: Kev? Why Kev? Hang on, I should be on the board.
Nell: Kev represents you.
Me: This is outrageous. I’m on Dave’s side. Secret meetings. It’s not fair.
Nell: Don’t be silly. You were quite happy until you found out.
Me: What were you discussing?
Nell: If you check on Companies House you can see further details.
Me: Do you have a company then?
Nell: Of course we do. We are the directors.
Me: I vote that Dave, Harriet and I become directors too.
Nell: You don’t have a vote but I will add it to the agenda.
Me: Thank you.
Nell: Can I get back to my meeting now, or we will never finish and I have to circulate the minutes by the end of today?
Me: Yes, sorry.
