David does it again

Me: My darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy was a bit full on with our visitors, wasn’t he?

Nell: Full on? He climbed right up onto Elliot and licked his face. He knew he had overdone it.

Me: He was just being friendly, Nell. He hadn’t met him before, so he was excited. Elliot didn’t mind. Dave is just naturally affectionate.

Nell: He takes it way too far. And what about social distancing?

Me: I don’t think it’s really Dave’s thing.

Nell: Well, he needs to show restraint. It was embarrassing.

Me: Charlotte and Scarlett laughed.

Nell: They weren’t being climbed on.

Me: Well, I think we all could do with a hug at the moment, Nell. And Dave’s hugs are the best.

Nell: These are difficult times, I agree. Have you heard anything more about the audio book?

Me: It’s with the distributors now. We are still hoping it will be released before Christmas.

Nell: Good. I think it’s just what people need.

Me: Yes. I know lots of people have been listening to the Christmas Special again. They find it comforting.

Nell: We need to remember that this too will pass. It’s where we are now. But it’s not where we’re going to stay.

Me: You’re right.

Nell: Better times are ahead. We just need to keep going.

Me: It’s certainly turning out to be a strange old Christmas.

Nell: It’s one that people will talk about for years to come.

Me: True.

Nell: The thing to do is to make the best of it that you can, and if you feel you’re not coping then let someone know.

Me: We are in this together.

Nell: Yes. Let us know. We are always here.

Me: Thank goodness for you, Nell.

Nell: Thank goodness for us all.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
