How cute was she?

Nell: It’s Kev with baby Harriet.

Me: Yes. All this talk of babies made me look through the old photos. How cute was she?

Nell: Harriet has immense charm.

Me: Kev fell in love with her the moment he saw her.

Nell: It was mutual.

Me: What do you think about the royal baby?

Nell: I am delighted for them both. Meghan and I have been in touch this morning. She and Baby Sussex are doing well.

Me: Any ideas about his name?

Nell: My lips are sealed. You will find out soon enough.

Me: What does everyone else think?

Nell: David is sure he is going to be called Dave which is clearly ridiculous.

Me: It is unlikely, as is Malcolm, or Timothy.

Nell: And Mutley is definitely off the cards.

Me: What about Charlie and Jim?

Nell: Yes. James and Charles have history behind them.

Me: I’m afraid Kev isn’t likely either.

Nell: No, and I’ve told Count Bingo it’s never happening.

Me: It’s so exciting and granddaughter Baby Snail is due on 28th May too.

Nell: I shall be glad when she isn’t called Snail.

Me: It’s from that lovely children’s book ‘The Snail and the Whale’.

Nell: I am aware. I feel Nell might be a possibility but Gladys is a definite no.

Me: Yes.

Nell: On another note I am able to inform you that the roofing has started.

Me: Finally.

Nell: We are now living on a building site. You will also be pleased to hear that we are having a Health and Safety meeting on your return.

Me: I’m not that pleased, to be honest, Nell. I might be a bit tired after all the travelling.

Nell: Nonsense. You can never be too tired to discuss the importance of a hard hat and a sequinned vest. Now hurry home.

Me: Yes, of course. Sorry.
