Nell: I’m afraid David doesn’t like heart healthy food. He ate a pork pie by mistake.
Me: It’s only been a day.
Nell: I think it’s the lack of bacon.
Me: Where did he find the pork pie?
Nell: The Farm dogs.
Me: Never mind. Why is everyone wearing socks?
Nell: We are being Considerate.
Me: How kind.
Nell: And our feet were cold.
Nell: And Knitwear Wolf had a new delivery of socks which were far too big for birds.
Nell: Yes. The Beefies have placed an order for socks as well as hats and scarves.
Me: You are going to laugh but I thought I heard gentle singing outside our window this morning.
Nell: That’ll be the Welsh Corgi choir. They always sing when they knit.
Me: Not usually outside our window.
Nell: No. But when Myfanwy heard about Kev they relocated the Knitting Circle to here. They thought he might like ‘a bit of Tom Jones’. I quote.
Me: He said he heard ‘Delilah’ but I thought he was joking.
Nell: I don’t think Delilah was there. She’s gone to Cardiff to visit her aunt.
Me: No, I meant the song. Isn’t it cold out there?
Nell: No. They have deckchairs and blankets and Poppy is providing flasks of tea and scones.
Me: What if it rains?
Nell: The Cat has offered the Big House.
Me: I’ve just had a thought.
Nell: Here we go.
Me: I think the Welsh Corgi choir are Knitwear Wolf’s knitters.
Nell: Of course they’re Rupert’s knitters. Everyone knows that.
Me: I hope your socks aren’t bugged, Nell. We don’t want the Beefies finding out about the Corgis.
Nell: Firstly, socks are not being bugged and secondly, we are doing the bugging. Do keep up.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
