Still here

Nell: Yesterday was not a good day.

Me: No, it wasn’t.

Nell: But you and Kev are home now and Kev is ok.

Me: Yes. Thank Goodness.

Nell: Shall I explain to everyone why today’s conversation is a little different?

Me: Yes, please.

Nell: You were on a Writers Workshop in the countryside yesterday with no mobile signal, or internet.

Me: Yes.

Nell: So you didn’t know Kev had been rushed into hospital until you were on your way home.

Me: No, I didn’t.

Nell: And you didn’t have a front door key.

Me: No.

Nell: And we were all inside the house.

Me: Yes.

Nell: So you got someone to break a window to release us.

Me: Yes. I did.

Nell: And there was glass everywhere.

Me: Yes.

Nell: You cleared it up and we all waited for our tea patiently.

Me: Fairly patiently.

Nell: And then you drove to the hospital. I wanted to go with you. We all did. But we knew we had to wait.

Me: Yes.

Nell: They did lots of tests to make sure it wasn’t a heart attack.

Me: Yes, they did.

Nell: And it wasn’t but he needs to be careful.

Me: Yes, he does.

Nell: You didn’t get the all clear until 1:20am so you didn’t get home until 2:15am.

Me: That’s right.

Nell: So Kev is sleeping now and I told you we would just let people know. That they would understand.

Me: Yes, I don’t think I’m up to writing much today.

Nell: It’s fine. We are here. Poppy is busy putting together a list of heart healthy recipes and David has agreed to test them.

Me: Yes.

Nell: So no more tears. He is home and he’s ok and we love you. Both.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
