They are here

Nell: So they’ve arrived safely, I see.

Me: Yes. It is so wonderful to have them here. Jonathan has grown.

Nell: Is that Naughty Nigel posing with Alice and Jonathan?

Me: Yes, and Seamus. I wouldn’t call it posing.

Nell: I’m surprised Boo isn’t there too.

Me: He was in the kitchen.

Nell: I think David might need extra attention when you get back.

Me: He knows he is my darling boy.

Nell: Sometimes knowing isn’t enough. Extra cuddles are needed.

Me: Of course.

Nell: For everyone.

Me: Yes.

Nell: Poppy and The Cat have organised a celebratory afternoon tea. There will be sandwiches, scones and sequins.

Me: Lovely.

Nell: So when will you be here?

Me: We are leaving after breakfast.

Nell: Why are you talking to me then? We are very excited, you know. Harriet has been watching out for Jonathan since daylight. Drive carefully. It’s stormy out there.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
