Me: Kev found this photo of the puppies when they were small. Look at their round tummies.

Nell: Some of us would prefer not to discuss round tummies, thank you. It can be a sensitive subject.

Me: Tell me about it.

Nell: No. That’s exactly what I don’t want to do.

Me: I love the way Harriet is snuggling into Dave.

Nell: Yes. David is a snuggly sort of animal. He enjoys a good cuddle.

Me: Unlike you.

Nell: What’s that supposed to mean?

Me: You can be very aloof, although you are mellowing a little in your old age.

Nell: Old age? I am 8.

Me: You know what I mean. Chloe says you’re really friendly at your therapy sessions.

Nell: Chloe is a sweet girl and the therapy mat is lovely and warm.

Me: Nell, you know I have a secret?

Nell: You have four secrets to be exact.

Me: True. Can I tell people at least one of them?

Nell: I suppose so.

Me: So, I can let them know the E-book is out now and available online?

Nell: Yes.

Me: And I just signed the contract for the second book?

Nell: That’s enough for now. The other secrets are going to have to wait.

Me: I’m so pleased my lovely editor, Peggy, is working with me again.

Nell: Peggy is very kind and patient which is essential when working with you.

Me: I’m very enthusiastic.

Nell: Yes, that’s part of the problem.

Me: I was practising my Talking Bowl voice and shocked Manuel, by the way. He said ‘Mrs Sara sound grumbly.’ His English is really improving.

Nell: You’re not supposed to sound grumbly. Just read your lines normally.

Me: But I based the Talking Bowl on you.

Nell: I beg your pardon?

Me: Sorry.
