Me: Who are those three waiting for?

Nell: Substitute Tony.

Me: Who?

Nell: Tony is on holiday so there is a different postman this week.

Me: Dave will be missing him.

Nell: Yes, but as I told David, everyone needs a break and Tony works very hard. Anyway David has enough to occupy him at the moment.

Me: Why?

Nell: He and Harriet are working on the campaign.

Me: This isn’t the beaches thing again, is it?

Nell: What do you mean the beaches thing? As campaign manager I object to that, but it’s not surprising I suppose as you are from the opposition.

Me: No, I’m not. I’m actually on your side, Nell. I don’t think dogs should be banned.

Nell: Speak to my deputy then, there may be something you can do.

Me: Is Mutley your deputy?

Nell: Of course not. Poppy is my deputy. There is no point in speaking to Mutley. He can’t hear.

Me: He can hear a little.

Nell: He is nearly 15. Give him a break. Anyway, Mutley is executive chairman so any applications to him must be made in writing.

Me: I see.

Nell: Just talk to Poppy there are bound to be some envelopes that need addressing. Now let me finish my speech. Radio Devon are due here soon.

Me: Ok. Sorry.

  1. Your blogs were a recommendation via FB. I’m so glad to have opened this first one. I love your conversations with Nell and have already read several more. Keep them coming and if the opportunity arises, please give Nell an ear rub from me. 😊
