Mutley was greatly loved

Me: Did I hear singing outside, Nell?

Nell: Yes. It’s the Welsh corgi choir. They are paying their respects to Mutley.

Me: But large gatherings are not allowed.

Nell: They are observing social distancing. Look out of the window.

Me: Oh, my goodness. The fields are full of animals and there are hundreds of birds in the trees.

Nell: They all wanted to be here to celebrate Mutley. He was greatly loved.

Me: This is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. Mutley would have loved it.

Nell: He’s watching it now. With Charlie. I’m sure of it.

Me: And everyone is wearing a hat.

Nell: Mutley loved a good hat.

Me: Even the llamas in pyjamas have nightcaps on.

Nell: Silly creatures.

Me: Is that a flock of Beefies?

Nell: Princess is about to sing and they are her backing group.

Me: But they’re carrying mackerel.

Nell: She needs to snack during the performance. It’s a seal thing.

Me: I’ve thought of a name for them. Princess and the Sealgulls. What do you think?

Nell: I think you would have made Mutley smile.

Me: Dear darling Mutley. I can’t believe he has gone. How is Joyce?

Nell: Devastated. Knitwear Wolf has spent a lot of time with her. Thank goodness he is here. He is such a comfort.

Me: I found Dave crying in the kitchen.

Nell: Yes, he and Harriet are staying close to each other.

Me: Poppy is keeping busy.

Nell: Yes. Everyone deals with grief in their own way.

Me: I wish I could help Kev. He’s hurting so much. Mutley was his dear old boy. Driving away from him broke his heart.

Nell: I know. But he had no choice. Just remember we are all in this together. Look outside.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
