Nell: I have to say the bond between David and Harriet is wonderful to see.
Me: They adore each other. Where are they?
Nell: In the kitchen Crossing Paws and Touching Tails.
Me: I love it when they do that.
Nell: Yes. David is so relieved that Harriet is off the chicken and rice diet.
Me: He didn’t have to go on it too.
Nell: He insisted. Silly animal. He even sang a song at Morning Thoughts.
Me: About Harriet?
Nell: No. About bacon sandwiches.
Me: Did you know that Knitwear Wolf can sing?
Nell: I did not.
Me: I heard him chatting to Tony about his shanty crew.
Nell: The Old Gaffers?
Nell: They aren’t letting him join, are they?
Me: No. He was suggesting knitted jumpers for them all.
Nell: You mean 100% pure wool knitted in a charcoal grey coloured chunky rib loose stitch pattern.
Me: You sound awfully knowledgeable.
Nell: I’ve had to listen to that wolf droning on about it myself. He’s awfully excited about autumn.
Me: Anyway, Knitwear Wolf has a pleasant baritone and is looking forward to the nights drawing in.
Nell: Talking of night’s are you going to Alejandro’s evening class?
Me: I didn’t know he had one.
Nell: Of course. Basic Spanish. Haven’t you seen the Autumn schedule? We’re all involved.
Me: You are?
Nell: Cooking with Poppy, Contemporary Dance with Gladys, Dining with David.
Me: Dining with David?
Nell: You know David has a column in the Sunday Growl.
Me: He does?
Nell: Yes. He’s had it for a while. Do keep up. He‘s very good at talking food.
Me: He’s very good at eating food.
Nell: His last book was a bestseller. You must have seen it. ‘Meals I ate by Mistake’.
Me: I didn’t know. Sorry.
