Me: Yesterday was a lovely day, wasn’t it? Look at the colours of that sky.
Nell: Yes, we were truly blessed.
Me: We certainly were.
Nell: It was a busy day. We had to get the Christmas tree from the Garden Centre.
Me: Yes. One of the trees spoke to Kev so we chose it.
Nell: If you say so. Personally, I’m glad we stopped for lunch. I enjoyed my prawn sandwich.
Me: And then we visited Faye at The Barn. She certainly loves you.
Nell: Yes, she enjoys my conversational skills.
Me: And she had drawn a picture of Alejandro.
Nell: An excellent likeness.
Me: Yes. He is going to be so pleased. I’m trying to persuade her to draw you.
Me: I could see your face on a mug.
Nell: A mug? A teacup, perhaps, but a mug? I never use mugs.
Me: No, but other people do. I would love it.
Nell: I know you would. Let’s see.
Nell: We visited your mother’s grave and you brought her a plant.
Me: I did.
Nell: Kev and I had a little walk while you talked to her.
Nell: Thinking can be done quietly and alone but Talking is best done with someone else.
Me: Yes, it is.
Nell: She is always listening you know.
Me: I know.
Nell: And then we went to the hotel at Buckland tout Saints for a cup of tea.
Me: And you were given biscuits.
Nell: Yes, they are most kind.
Me: A walk on the beach was the perfect end to the day. The sunset took my breath away.
Nell: The coldness of the sea took mine.
Me: Thank you for being there, Nell.
Nell: You and me always. No need for thanks.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
