Our Happy Place

Me: Yesterday’s walk on the beach did me so much good.

Nell: A refreshing swim and sand under the paws is always good for the spirits.

Me: When I’m by the sea it centres me. It helps me to think and put things in perspective.

Nell: It is definitely your happy place.

Me: Yours too. It makes you smile.

Nell: Kev was right to take us there.

Me: I’m so glad we went to my mother’s grave first. I needed to talk to her.

Nell: I know you did. She is always listening, though.

Me: People have been very kind. We have some wonderful friends, don’t we?

Nell: We certainly do.

Me: All the comments and messages really helped.

Nell: And we have 23 reviews of the book on US Amazon so only 12 to go before they start promoting us.

Me: Hopefully it will arrive in the UK soon.

Nell: It will. These are strange times. We just have to be patient.

Me: I know. I just want to share it with everyone.

Nell: We will.

Me: Yes.

Nell: Now, we have a very important event coming up this weekend.

Me: We do?

Nell: Poppy will be 7 on Sunday.

Me: What are you planning?

Nell: Well, Malcolm and The Cat are organising Poppy’s party.

Me: I wouldn’t have put those two together.

Nell: It’s going to be based on the legend of King Arthur.

Me: Isn’t that rather ambitious?

Nell: Nothing is ever too ambitious for The Cat.

Me: True.

Nell: Poppy will be pulling a sword from the stone.

Me: Excalibur?

Nell: Of course. We shall all be in costume.

Me: I just hope there are no Bites at the Round Table.

Nell: That was very silly but I’ll let it go this time.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
