Me: Mutley enjoyed his walk by the sea.

Nell: Yes. Jonathan kept an eye on him. He is a caring little boy. They have a close bond.

Me: Yes. It is lovely to see.

Nell: I think I may have been a little grumpy yesterday.

Me: Everyone has their days.

Nell: If I see Lily again I shall apologise and suggest she plays with the puppies.

Me: Good idea.

Nell: Now, Malcolm has invited little Susan Seagull over this afternoon and is fussing about the entertainment.

Me: Why?

Nell: They are both very shy so sometimes there are pauses.

Me: Should David sing perhaps?

Nell: No, and I don’t want him tap dancing either.

Me: Harriet is always easy to talk to?

Nell: I’m thinking board games are the answer. You can play and chat at the same time.

Me: Good idea.

Nell: The Cat has made him a sequinned bow tie so he will look smart.

Me: And shiny.

Nell: They will take tea in the living room with small sandwiches and cakes. David will serve but Harriet will pour the tea after last week’s fiasco.

Me: Dave was distracted so he kept pouring.

Nell: That visiting corgi had tea all over its shoes. It had to go home in Harriet’s slippers.

Me: Apparently Gladys walked past the window on stilts.

Nell: Yes. She’s started doing that. So annoying.

Me: Yes.

Nell: Can you make sure you are presentable too, please?

Me: Why?

Nell: Susan’s father is dropping her off and would like to meet the family. I think he is a little over protective.

Me: What time are they arriving?

Nell: 3pm.

Me: I’ll be suited and booted by 2:45pm.

Nell: No boots in the house, please. We have standards.

Me: Of course. Sorry.
