Dave gets caught again

Me: I caught Dave again at Cheeky Animal.

Nell: David isn’t supposed to be playing. He has work to do.

Me: My poor Big Brave Beautiful Boy.

Nell: He’s meant to be spreading the word about the release of the audio book.

Me: Just tell the cows. Everyone will know then.

Nell: The cows are inside. It’s far too cold for outside gossiping.

Me: Maybe Poppy could ask her Beefy Fan Club. You know they think she was in ‘Game of Thrones’, don’t you?

Nell: Don’t be ridiculous. That was Jon Snow not Evil Mrs Poppy Snow.

Me: I think it’s because she waves a sword.

Nell: Can we concentrate on the matter at hand, please?

Me: Is the book out on Audible yet?

Nell: No. Just Google Play and Apple Books.

Me: It’s awfully exciting, Nell.

Nell: Yes, and just what we all need to take our minds off this difficult time.

Me: At least the sun is shining today. I don’t mind the cold, if there is sun.

Nell: Tell that to the llamas. They are out there in dressing gowns. Ridiculous creatures.

Me: Babycakes Gillespie has started serving mulled wine as well as coffee with his bagels.

Nell: No wonder that llama fell over just now. I thought it was just showing off.

Me: I love a good mulled wine.

Nell: Don’t you start. Now, New Year’s Eve this year is going to be rather low key.

Me: Probably wise.

Nell: Poppy is thinking of a barbecue.

Me: Isn’t it a bit cold for that?

Nell: Knitted hats and scarves will be provided.

Me: I can wear my all encasing hat.

Nell: Yes.

Me: And nobody will know it is me.

Nell: Everybody knows it is you. Leave the spying to Sally and Harriet.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
