Missing Family

Me: Why is Dave looking worried?

Nell: He knows you are missing the grandchildren.

Me: I am. Alice sent over some beautiful photos of them both.

Nell: Yes. I thought we could share them with everyone.

Me: Yes. They are growing up so quickly. Faye was just a baby the last time I saw her and now she is walking around.

Nell: And Jonathan is quite the big brother now, isn’t he?

Me: Yes. Bless him.

Nell: You will see them soon. Trust me.

Me: I know. I’m just having one of those moments.

Nell: It’s fine not to be fine, you know.

Me: Yes.

Nell: But not for too long, please. We have work to do.

Me: But it’s Saturday, Nell.

Nell: What do you feel about ponchos?

Me: Ponchos?

Nell: Is it something a llama could wear?

Me: It’s certainly better than a dressing gown in this weather.

Nell: True.

Me: And easily slipped on and off.

Nell: Yes.

Me: It also allows for freedom of movement.

Nell: Good point.

Me: So all in all I would say a poncho would be an excellent idea for a llama.

Nell: That’s what I said to Knitwear Wolf.

Me: Does he agree?

Nell: He does. The Cat wants vibrant colours, however, which is all wrong.

Me: Is it?

Nell: Yes. Llamas suit browns and earth colours.

Me: But what if they want a bit of colour in their lives? A little pizzazz and va va voom.

Nell: I beg your pardon?

Me: Sometimes you need to wear colours, Nell. Even if they don’t really suit you.

Nell: I don’t want to look out of my window in the morning to see cartwheeling llamas in fluorescent pink ponchos.

Me: They’re not always cartwheeling.

Nell: That’s not the point.

Me: No. Sorry.
