Let’s embrace Autumn

Me: Look at Dave and Harriet. How adorable are they?

Nell: Was that really only a year ago?

Me: Yes.

Nell: Goodness me. How time flies.

Me: Yes. Summer is over. The nights are drawing in.

Nell: Here we go.

Me: No more flip flops and shorts.

Nell: You don’t like flip flops.

Me: Just thick jumpers and heavy boots.

Nell: Speak for yourself.

Me: Hang on. It’s October.

Nell: Yes.

Me: We can walk on our beach again.

Nell: Yes.

Me: We can stride along the cliff tops with the wind in our hair.

Nell: Good grief.

Me: We can gallop along the beach kicking up the surf.

Nell: I blame Poldark for the galloping nonsense.

Me: All dogs are free to roam where they wish.

Nell: There will be no roaming, thank you very much.

Me: We need to embrace autumn and the joy it brings.

Nell: I think embrace is a little flowery but I am certainly willing to enjoy a brisk walk on our beach and a swim in the sea.

Me: What are we waiting for? Let’s be off.

Nell: Poppy has to get the chicken casserole in the oven. Mutley is on a Skype call to Hong Kong. Harriet is working on spreadsheets and David is sewing sequins with The Cat.

Me: Oh.

Nell: I’m sure we will all be free after lunch though.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
