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.
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.
Nell: Can you make sure you are presentable too, please?
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?
Me: I’ll be suited and booted by 2:45pm.
Nell: No boots in the house, please. We have standards.
Me: Of course. Sorry.
