Nell: You could have edited out my nose in that first photo.
Me: I love your nose.
Nell: At least Harriet looks lovely as always.
Me: So does your nose. I enjoyed our walk together so much.
Nell: Yes. It is interesting how precious everything becomes when we can’t just have it whenever we want to.
Me: It is.
Nell: Like Nature and the countryside.
Me: I’m afraid we’ve taken it for granted in the past.
Nell: Or spending time with our family and friends.
Me: Yes. Thank goodness for social media and the internet.
Nell: We need to look out for each other as much as we can.
Me: We really do, Nell, because the world is a little scary at the moment.
Nell: It’s a lot less scarier if we face it together.
Nell: We are all going to be much changed when this is over, you know.
Me: Yes. I think we are.
Nell: I’m sure of it. There is a strange healing going on. In Nature and in ourselves. We are becoming aware of what really matters.
Me: Like kindness?
Me: And cake.
Me: Did I tell you I talked to the publishers yesterday evening?
Nell: No. What did they say?
Me: The books are on their way to the US and will hopefully be with everyone at the end of next month as planned.
Me: If people haven’t preordered they can get them through their local bookshops, or directly from Schiffer Publishing in the US, or Gazelle Book Services in the UK.
Nell: What about Amazon?
Me: Probably, but they are having to prioritise.
Nell: I’m sure people will find the book a great comfort.
Me: I do hope so.
Nell: I know so.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
