Me: There is nothing like a surprise visit from your best friend.
Nell: I agree. It is a joy to see them together.
Me: The minute Dave saw Tony he ran to the gate.
Nell: Yes. Although running isn’t actually allowed. They had a marvellous discussion about bandages and David showed Tony his. Tony’s lab Milo had chickens on his bandage.
Me: And Dave’s?
Nell: David’s has tractors. In honour of grandson Jonathan, I expect, we know how much he loves them.
Me: Yes, although I’m not sure the vet knew that when he put it on.
Nell: I am aware of that but Jonathan isn’t.
Nell: Both Mutley and Jonathan have birthdays this month. Mutley on 18th and Jonathan on 19th.
Me: They do.
Nell: And I believe you also became a Great Aunt on Wednesday to little Lily.
Me: I did.
Nell: So all in all this is quite a busy month.
Me: It is.
Nell: I know it would have been your mother’s birthday this month too.
Me: Yes. She loved September.
Nell: We will still celebrate her life with your sisters at the end of the month.
Me: Yes, we will.
Nell: In the meantime let’s enjoy the fact that Tony’s visit has made David’s day.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
Nell: There is no need to say sorry. None at all.
