Daddy’s girl

Me: You’re such a Daddy’s girl.

Nell: I beg your pardon?

Me: Look at your face. Sheer happiness.

Nell: Kev and I are simply enjoying our special time together.

Me: Yes, I know you are and I love to see it.

Nell: Sometimes you just need to get away from the crowds.

Me: I know what you mean. Far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Nell: There’s a little too much hustle and bustle at home at the moment.

Me: Well, there definitely seems to be more mackerel flying around.

Nell: You know perfectly well that mackerel can’t fly. Only salmon do that and only occasionally.

Me: Never mind. By the way, do you know why the llamas are wearing helmets?

Nell: You can’t ride a motorbike without a helmet. Do keep up.

Me: I didn’t know they had motorbikes.

Nell: They need them for deliveries. Knitwear Wolf can’t manage it all on his own. There’s been a sudden demand for cardigans

Me: Really? In summer?

Nell: The temperature has dropped and there is nothing like a light cardigan on a summer’s evening. It’s so wonderfully versatile.

Me: It is.

Nell: The Cat is thinking of putting on a fashion show. It’s hoping Sue can help.

Me: Tony’s wife Sue?

Nell: Yes. Sue is an amazing knitter. She can turn her hand to anything crafty. Unlike you.

Me: That’s a bit harsh.

Nell: But true. Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses. The important thing is to recognise what they are.

Me: Talking of weaknesses, Benjamin’s cough seems to be worse.

Nell: Yes. It’s his allergies and being a travelling salesbird of course.

Me: A travelling salesbird?

Nell: Yes. The Beefies have got him selling Gull No 5. Nest to nest. He’s exhausted.

Me: I didn’t know. Sorry.
