Saturday ideas

Me: Where is Harriet?

Nell: Jonathan came up with some excellent ideas at Morning Thoughts so they are busy putting them into a useful form.

Me: What were they?

Nell: “Singing always helps, except when it really doesn’t.” David liked that one. Fortunately Shannon loved the song yesterday, by the way, and was delighted with Gladys’s contemporary dance, if a little surprised when it started.

Me: She probably wasn’t expecting her to jump out of your handbag.

Nell: Maybe not.

Me: Did Jonathan have any other ideas?

Nell: “Tell is better than Show, if you need to work through important feelings.” Malcom agreed and proceeded to over-tell in my opinion.

Me: Is he still upset about Kitten Kardashandrun?

Nell: He’s only gone and invited her over to try his macarons. Ridiculous idea.

Me: They are good though, Nell.

Nell: That’s not the point. She is all fluff and no consequence.

Me: Well, I think you are being harsh. We should give her a chance.

Nell: She’s a distant cousin of The Cat’s, you know. Says it all.

Me: Any more Jonathan ideas?

Nell: “Always ask Mutley first.” Harriet’s favourite.

Me: But Mutley is deaf.

Nell: Yes. But it’s all about the talking it through and working out what he would say.

Me: I suppose it is.

Nell: The final one was “Everything is better at the beach.” Very true and exactly why we are going there for lunch and sandcastles.

Me: I am having a lovely weekend, Nell. My idea is “Everything is better with Family.”

Nell: Yes. That’s why we are all here. Do keep up.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
