Nell: David fell asleep during Morning Thoughts again. Harriet and I were in the middle of a deep discussion and he started snoring.
Me: He’s probably exhausted trying to Keep Us All Safe.
Nell: He’s exhausted after staying up late with Gladys watching Petflix.
Me: It doesn’t matter, Nell. Let them have their fun.
Nell: You know they made bacon sandwiches at midnight?
Me: I thought I could smell bacon.
Nell: Mutley joined them. He thought it was the morning.
Me: Oh dear.
Nell: Joyce was not amused.
Me: Did you find out what she and Myfanwy were fighting about?
Nell: Yes. Myfanwy wants to join Knitwear Wolf on his rounds but she is not a key worker and should be staying home.
Me: Oh dear.
Nell: Joyce told her she was irresponsible but she says she can’t bear to be without him.
Me: Well, I have to say I am on Joyce’s side. We are all struggling with not seeing loved ones at the moment but we have no choice.
Nell: Yes. She is putting herself and others in danger. Knitwear Wolf has told her to stay home so hopefully she will listen.
Me: How is Dave coping without Sally?
Nell: He misses her dreadfully but she is needed in London. And there’s always bacon.
Me: When did Joyce move in, by the way?
Nell: A while ago. Mutley needs a lot of care now he is getting frailer so she offered to help.
Me: Maybe Myfanwy needs to move in with Knitwear Wolf.
Nell: Stop meddling.
Me: It’s very hard not to be with the ones you love, Nell.
Nell: We have the technology to keep in touch. Use it to let people know you are there for them. We are in this together.
Me: You’re right. Sorry.
