Nell: I would steer clear of Harriet if I were you.
Nell: There has been a slight addition to the London plans and she is not amused.
Me: I see.
Nell: The Cat managed to get tickets for Mamma Mia so it will be joining David.
Me: That’s lovely. Dave must be delighted.
Nell: Along with Gladys.
Me: Well, Gladys does love Mamma Mia.
Nell: Quite. They couldn’t leave her behind. She cried into her cereal.
Me: But Harriet isn’t happy about it?
Nell: No. She says her visit is being turned into a fiasco and she is not wearing sequins.
Me: She doesn’t have to, does she?
Nell: Well, sequins are virtually compulsory around The Cat. It has even made James a sequinned chauffeurs hat. He loves it.
Me: Well, I think it’s a good idea. Harriet and Sally can do their own thing while Dave, The Cat and Gladys do theirs.
Nell: Yes. The Cat wants to pop into Liberty’s for some fabric. I suggested Harvey Tickles and John Loses as they are always worth a visit, although I’m never quite sure what John has actually lost.
Nell: There is a huge Barks and Spencer, so I’ve asked them to bring back some socks for Mutley. His paws get a little cold at night.
Me: I think they will have a lovely time.
Nell: Yes and Charlie and I can spend some quiet time together while they are away. I adore the puppies but they can be a handful.
Me: Keep me posted as I shall be thinking about you all while I am away.
Nell: You know I will. You can’t have a conversation without Nell. Don’t be silly.
Me: Of course not. Sorry.
