Me: It’s Sunday today, Nell.
Nell: Yes, I know. It’s Sunday all day. The sun is shining through the morning mist and I can hear the Welsh corgi choir singing.
Me: It’s lovely to hear carols again, isn’t it?
Nell: Yes. Happy First Advent.
Me: Thank you and the same to you. But it’s Sunday, Nell. We can finally tell everyone about the surprise.
Nell: Well, go on then. Tell them.
Me: What? Me? Now?
Nell: Good grief. Get on with it.
Me: Next Sunday you’re finally going to hear Nell speak.
Nell: I’ve been doing that for years.
Me: I know but until now I’m the only one who has heard you.
Nell: They’ll be able to hear you as well.
Me: Never mind me.
Nell: I beg to differ. I couldn’t have done it without you. And an awful lot of help from Kev.
Me: He’s worked incredibly hard at producing this.
Nell: What we’re trying to say is, that as a surprise for you all, Sara has written an Audio Christmas Special 2020 which you will be able to listen to from next Sunday, 6th Dec.
Me: I thought it was about time you heard Nell’s voice.
Nell: And everyone needs a surprise at Christmas.
Me: Especially this year.
Nell: Yes. 2020 has turned out to be quite a difficult year for us all.
Me: It certainly has. But hearing Nell speak will make your Christmas a little brighter.
Nell: You flatter me.
Me: It’s true, Nell. You are such a comfort. I don’t know where I would be without you.
Nell: Anyway, we hope you enjoy the Christmas Special next Sunday.
Me: It will make you laugh.
Nell: And it will definitely make you cry.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
Nell: No need for sorry. None at all.
