Making memories

Nell: I thoroughly enjoyed our walk with Chris and Shannon yesterday. Being by the sea is good for the soul.

Me: Yes. We made some wonderful memories didn’t we?

Nell: We did. Charlotte enjoyed her birthday, too.

Me: Yes, it was lovely to see both my sisters.

Nell: Talking of birthdays, plans are well under way for the puppies’ surprise party tomorrow.

Me: I can’t believe they are going to be 2.

Nell: Quite frankly nobody believes David hasn’t been two for years. Look at the size of him.

Me: It’s not his fault that he is such a lovely big boy and Harriet is so delicate.

Nell: Poppy and Malcolm are preparing their favourite food. Sausages, lots of scones and a selection of sandwiches.

Me: Crusts off?

Nell: Of course, but no salad. Malcolm is making a carrot cake. The Cat is doing the icing. It has dexterous claws.

Me: Good.

Nell: Gladys is in charge of entertainment. I saw Myfanwy carrying a Pom Pom so I am expecting some cheerleading from the Welsh corgis.

Me: Nothing too strenuous I hope.

Nell: No. There will be more waving than jumping. John the Doberman is bringing his band.

Me: I didn’t know he had one.

Nell: Yes. The Rolling Bones. They are all rather elderly now but David is a huge fan of the vocalist Mick Jaguar.

Me: Don’t you mean Jagger?

Nell: Not unless he’s a wild cat, too.

Me: Will Gladys be dancing?

Nell: Of course. Everyone will. Even the quietly spoken Spaniel from the Post Office said she was bringing her dancing shoes.

Me: I hope Gladys doesn’t wear stilettos. It never ends well.

Nell: As long as she doesn’t wear them on the bouncy castle we should be fine.

Me: Bouncy castle?

Nell: Yes, of course. You can’t turn two without bouncing. The mere idea.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
