Lagging behind

Me: I was a bit slow on our walk today.

Nell: Don’t worry. Jonathan was waiting at the top and Alice and I were leading the way.

Me: Yes.

Nell: Mutley likes to take his time, too.

Me: Yes, he does.

Nell: It’s only their last day in Devon for now you know.

Me: Yes.

Nell: The next time you see them the baby will be there too.

Me: Yes.

Nell: You have all of today and tomorrow.

Me: I do.

Nell: And then you have memories until the next time.

Me: Yes, so many happy memories.

Nell: You are very lucky.

Me: I am.

Nell: Even if you lag behind now and again someone will always be waiting for you because that’s what families do.

Me: Yes, it is.

Nell: By the way David is never allowed ketchup again.

Me: Why?

Nell: We had to soak Gladys for over an hour to get it out.

Me: To be fair it sort of exploded out of the bottle and got in her hair and he didn’t want to waste it.

Nell: How many times do I have to say it? You do not use a Pomeranian to spread ketchup on your fish finger.

Me: You are right. Sorry.
