Me: You look thoroughly disgruntled.
Nell: I’m trying to work things out. Something about all this bad behaviour simply doesn’t make sense.
Me: Welcome to my world.
Nell: This really isn’t like Myfanwy. She never used to care if someone was KC registered or not.
Me: Well, she does now.
Nell: And I just came across some extraordinary goings on at The Barn.
Me: Are the larger animals trampolining again?
Nell: No. After Monty the Moose bounced Gladys over the hedge they’ve stopped.
Me: Is it poker? Only I know The Cat was looking for players.
Nell: No. It’s not the larger animals at all. It’s Sidney.
Me: Sidney the bad spider? Is he still here?
Nell: Yes. David says he is not really a bad spider.
Me: Just misled?
Nell: Exactly. Anyway, after talking to Joyce this morning I thought I would have a little chat with Sidney.
Me: Good idea.
Nell: You won’t believe what I found.
Me: I just might. Was he eating Laverbread again?
Me: Was he wearing a Welsh hat like the llamas?
Nell: No. But llamas were involved.
Me: Gosh. How exciting. Tell me more.
Nell: Sidney was on a zoom call when I arrived.
Me: I didn’t know he had a laptop.
Nell: That’s not the point. He borrowed David’s iPawed.
Me: My darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy. So generous.
Nell: Anyway, don’t you want to know who else was on the call?
Nell: Myfanwy, the llamas and Seamus.
Me: Seamus? Naughty Nigel’s brother?
Nell: Yes, and last but not least, Lady Anwen.
Me: How odd.
Nell: And they were all speaking Welsh.
Me: There is definitely something fishy going on.
Nell: Don’t start bringing fish into this, please. I have enough to deal with already.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
