An emotional day

Nell: Yesterday was a day of emotions.

Me: Yes, it was.

Nell: We laid your mother to rest in a beautiful place.

Me: Yes, we did.

Nell: Surrounded by love.

Me: Yes.

Nell: I was by your side.

Me: You were.

Nell: The hotel looked after us extremely well.

Me: Yes, they were very kind.

Nell: They brought me fresh water to drink in my own bowl and several biscuits.

Me: It was thoughtful of them.

Nell: They couldn’t know I actually wanted a cup of Earl Grey and a smoked salmon sandwich.

Me: No. Although they might have guessed about the sandwich.

Nell: After the memorial you all went to the beach.

Me: Yes, we did. We had our Wellington boots and rain gear in the boot.

Nell: And Kev joined you later with Mutley.

Me: Yes. Mutley can’t do the long walks anymore so he sometimes misses out.

Nell: But not yesterday.

Me: No.

Nell: Mutley and Jonathan were able to spend some special time together by the sea.

Me: Yes.

Nell: There was an awful lot of sea in Jonathan’s boots, if I may say so.

Me: Yes. Some of the puddles were deeper than we expected and when you are by the sea you have to splash.

Nell: You certainly do.

Me: It was the perfect end to an emotional day and I’m so glad Mutley was able to join us on the beach.

Nell: The evening was a little wild. I’m afraid David and Gladys don’t understand the concept of discreet. Those feather boas.

Me: We enjoyed it. It was such a special family day, Nell. We made so many memories.

Nell: We did.

Me: My mother would have loved it.

Nell: She did. She was watching over you all.

Me: Yes, she was. Sorry.
