You are about to be bounced

Nell: I’m afraid Poppy is in one of her wild moods today.

Me: Why?

Nell: Kev and Harriet are having a Saturday snooze and she is about to bounce them. Look at her face.

Me: Oh no.

Nell: She thinks it’s hilarious. Honestly, she will be 6 this month and it’s high time she grew up.

Me: I suppose so.

Nell: Do you know she bounced Myfanwy as she was coming out of Barks and Spencer? She had a couple of the Welsh corgi choir with her and they broke into song with the fright of it.

Me: Oh dear. Although they are lovely singers.

Nell: That’s not the point. You can’t just bounce people whenever you feel like it. Malcolm lives in constant fear and he wasn’t particularly brave to start with.

Me: It’s good for her to let her hair down now and again though, Nell. She works so hard.

Nell: Talking of hair we need to book her in with Doug for a cut and blow dry.

Me: Yes. Especially now it’s summer.

Nell: She had better not bounce Doug and the girls or she will end up having more than her hair cut.

Me: Not a perm? It would be too much.

Nell: A perm? What are you talking about? Are we back in the 1980’s? I mean bouncing and scissors do not go together.

Me: No. Of course.

Nell: Anyway, have you told everyone that Baby Snail finally has a name?

Me: No, but I will now. It is Faye Raine.

Nell: Yes, a lovely name for a girl. The word for fairy is ‘Fee’ in German and is pronounced Faye.

Me: It is and that’s what Snail is to us. Our magical little fairy.

Nell: Would you please stop calling her Snail.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
