It’s Alice’s Birthday

Nell: Now, it’s your daughter Alice’s birthday today and she is far away in Berlin.

Me: Yes.

Nell: So, I thought a photo of Alice with myself and Jonathan from her last visit would be appropriate.

Me: Yes. It’s lovely.

Nell: We will be FaceTiming her later. David has prepared a dance. Gladys will join him and The Cat is playing the maracas.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: Harriet will sing with Mutley on piano and I have written a poem.

Me: Can I hear it?

Nell: Certainly. Naturally I have used the name Tink as this is what we call her.

Me: Yes.

Nell: “It’s Tink’s Birthday today

So what can I say?

Except that we love her

More and more every day.

Hard to believe I know

But it’s true.

No one can love Tink more

Than we do.”

Me: That’s lovely, Nell. Thank you.

Nell: My pleasure. We all miss her.

Me: We really do.

Nell: Poppy has made a cake in honour of Tink and you are allowed the first slice.

Me: Delicious.

Nell: Kev will be lighting a fire soon due to the inclement weather and David has agreed to tell us about his exciting day at school. Fluffy socks will be worn by everyone.

Me: Everyone?

Nell: Yes. Tink loves fluffy socks. The Cat has also made sequinned hats so put yours on now. No arguments.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
