Nell: You won’t believe this.
Me: I just might.
Nell: I was talking to Harriet on my iBone this morning and she said David and Gladys actually joined the Mamma Mia cast on stage last night.
Nell: Oh yes. Don’t ask me how. I’m fairly sure contemporary dance was involved and David definitely sang. They were both wearing sequinned flares and long wigs. Apparently they were a huge success.
Me: Good for them. What about The Cat?
Nell: It doesn’t do impromptu performances.
Me: Of course not. Silly me. What else have they been doing?
Nell: Shopping, obviously, and David has fallen in love with the Food Hall at Harold’s.
Me: Don’t you mean Harrods?
Nell: No. Who is he?
Me: What about Harriet?
Nell: She sounded very chipper. She managed to pop in on Harry and Meghan with a small gift from me. I know Meghan loves surprises and Harry has always had a soft spot for Harriet.
Me: That’s nice. Did Dave go too?
Nell: Not after the cake incident. I felt he wasn’t to be trusted.
Me: What happened?
Nell: Poppy made Meghan a nourishing cake only it never got to London as David ate it in the car. He said he thought it was for him.
Me: Oh dear. Poppy usually packs him a picnic. I’m sure it was an innocent mistake.
Nell: Gladys helped. Crumbs were found in my handbag. By the way, Sally has decided to come and stay for a few days. She has something she needs to discuss with Charlie.
Me: How is he?
Nell: We managed a short walk on the beach again. He is struggling a little with his breathing.
Me: Are you still coming with Kev to collect me from the hotel this afternoon?
Nell: Of course. I always bring you home. You know that.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
