All in good time

Nell: I’m afraid there was a touch of the Mondays about Morning Thoughts today.

Me: Why?

Nell: Mutley fell asleep during Any Other Business and Poppy refused to leave her Palace.

Me: Actually I noticed her Palace is falling apart again.

Nell: Yes. Kev is going to mend it. David barged into it by mistake.

Me: Harriet looks alert.

Nell: Yes. That young lady is definitely up to something. There’s a sparkle in her eyes and a gleam to her coat.

Me: Do you think a handsome Farm Dog called Jim is involved?

Nell: I know he is. They were very late home last night. Harriet said they’d been playing Scrabble with Susan and Malcolm at The Nest and had forgotten the time.

Me: Maybe that’s true.

Nell: Susan and Malcolm were in bed by 9pm because Malcolm had an early start.

Me: Is he baking bread?

Nell: Yes. The Whippets Institute have placed a large order for baps. They are off on another excursion.

Me: That minibus certainly gets around. So where was Harriet?

Nell: I don’t know but I mean to find out.

Me: Did Knitwear Wolf return your handbag?

Nell: Yes, along with Gladys who was covered in grass.

Me: Did Rupert deliver the papers?

Nell: Yes. Pass me the Daily Growl. Myfanwy said she saw Doug the Pug in town so he must be working on a story.

Me: Doug the Pug? Do I know him?

Nell: Everyone knows him. He’s the Daily Growl’s lead reporter. Oh, that’s interesting.

Me: What is?

Nell: ‘Shorn Sheep Reveals All.’

Me: I don’t know a sheep called Sean.

Nell: No, shorn as in shaved and his name is Bert.

Me: What does Bert have to say?

Nell: Let me read it first. All in good time.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
