Preparations for Poppy’s Party

Me: Why were you three waiting downstairs?

Nell: Kev closed the stair gate. He wanted you to have a lie in.

Me: That was kind of him. I have been sleeping badly recently.

Nell: I wouldn’t have woken you.

Me: I know you wouldn’t but Dave has a habit of jumping on the bed and checking I’m ok by shoving his nose in my face.

Nell: He’s a paws on kind of puppy.

Me: See. You called him a puppy.

Nell: It’s your fault. Anyway, now you’re awake you should look at Amazon US. We are up to 26 reviews so only 9 to go.

Me: That’s amazing. We have the best followers.

Nell: I prefer to call them friends.

Me: And you are right as always.

Nell: Now, preparations for Poppy’s party are in full swing.

Me: That’s exciting.

Nell: Obviously due to social distancing rules the bouncy castle cannot be made available to everyone at once.

Me: No.

Nell: Suits of armour and tall hats will have to be removed on entrance.

Me: Definitely.

Nell: The Cat has a large selection of costumes over at the Big House so choose one soon.

Me: I will.

Nell: David is going as Sir Launcelot.

Me: My Big Brave Beautiful Boy.

Nell: And Poppy has asked Knitwear Wolf to be King Arthur and me to be Queen Guinevere.

Me: Really?

Nell: She says we’re best suited to the roles.

Me: You are.

Nell: She will be playing Young Arthur and will carry Excalibur.

Me: There has to be a baddy.

Nell: Harriet will be playing the evil enchantress Morgan le Fay.

Me: She will love that. Darling Mutley was always Merlin.

Nell: That is why Merlin will be in our memories.

Me: How lovely.

Nell: They all will.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
