Meadow Walk

Me: How was your training session?

Nell: It was beautiful on Meadow Walk this morning but Poppy is quite the taskmaster.

Me: I thought I saw her with a whistle in her mouth.

Nell: Yes. I think I’m going to hide the wretched thing. She had us running up hill and down hill.

Me: Thank goodness for the stream.

Nell: Yes, a swim in the sea would have been better but it’s out of bounds at the moment because of half term.

Me: Why?

Nell: After the Picnic Incident we decided David was best kept away from holidaymakers.

Me: What did he do?

Nell: Joined in. Uninvited. Several times.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: I mean it’s acceptable to introduce oneself and if a sandwich is offered one can accept it, but you don’t just barge in and help yourself.

Me: No. Certainly not.

Nell: He ate a whole quiche. In one go.

Me: I’m sure he didn’t mean it badly.

Nell: He says he was just welcoming visitors and sharing in the fun.

Me: Dave is ever so sociable.

Nell: Anyway, after Poppy’s morning training I need a cup of Earl Grey.

Me: I’m sure Malcolm would make you a smoothie.

Nell: Smoothies are a healthy pre-workout meal options. We had ours at 6am. Do keep up. Did The Cat just jog past wearing lycra?

Me: Yes.

Nell: Followed by Gladys in leg warmers?

Me: I’m afraid so. Sorry.
