Me: My goodness that looks so beautiful, Nell.
Nell: Yes. Kev and I had one of our Special Times.
Me: Yes. I know you two do that now and again.
Nell: We do. It was particularly delightful because it was unexpected.
Me: I know what you mean.
Nell: He took me to hydrotherapy.
Me: Chloe says you are doing really well. I can see the difference in you.
Nell: Yes. I feel more comfortable in myself.
Me: I’m so glad.
Nell: After my therapy I was expecting to go home but instead he drove down to the river and we both paddled in the water.
Me: It is so lovely there.
Nell: Yes. We were able to spend some quiet, quality time together.
Me: Shooting the breeze.
Nell: Nobody shot anyone, thank you very much.
Me: It’s just a saying.
Nell: We’ve got quite enough on our plates with this gangster dinner.
Me: Did Malcolm catch any fish, by the way?
Nell: A few I think, but he always puts them back.
Me: Did you hear about the 8 foot tuna? It was on the local news. Some paddle boarders came across it when they were out paddling.
Nell: Yes. Her name is Tuppence. She’s over here on holiday.
Me: Tuppence? That’s an odd name for a tuna.
Nell: Why? What name do you think a tuna should have?
Me: I don’t know.
Nell: Well, then. Anyway, she was probably looking for Knitwear Wolf. She likes to join him when he’s out on his paddle board.
Nell: Yes, between us I think Princess is a little jealous. Anyway, where was I?
Me: You were talking about your Special Time alone with Kev.
Nell: Be happy that we were happy. You’re behaving like Princess.
Me: Yes. You’re right. Sorry.
