Me: You all look comfortable.
Nell: Yes, I asked Kev to light the fire.
Me: It’s hard to believe it’s nearly May.
Nell: Ridiculous weather. We were sunbathing last week.
Me: It’s like the ups and downs of life I suppose. One day sun and next day rain.
Nell: Here we go again.
Me: Just when you think you can bask in the warmth someone pours a bucket of water over your head.
Nell: I worry about you sometimes.
Me: Just saying.
Nell: Ever heard of April showers? Why don’t you get yourself a cup of tea and the Sunday papers and join us by the fire? It’s the Archers Omnibus on Radio 4 soon.
Me: Yes. That would be nice. Even Dave is resting.
Nell: He was helping Kev mend the clock but he got oil on his paws so Kev suggested a break.
Me: Yes, that’s Edward.
Me: The clock is called Edward we rescued him from a house clearance man.
Nell: Well, Edward keeps chiming and it’s extremely annoying.
Me: He’s just pleased to have a home.
Nell: Edward is a clock. Get a grip.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
