Life is Full of Changes

Nell: That’s our new walk.

Me: Yes, it is. Look at you cheeky animals.

Nell: We have to drive hours and hours to get there.

Me: No, we don’t, Nell. It’s only 15 mins away.

Nell: The old walk was 5 mins away.

Me: I know but the land has changed owners so we have to wait to ask the new owners if we can walk there again.

Nell: I have another question for you.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: Why do Harriet and I have to wear boys’ collars?

Me: There is no such thing anymore as a boy’s collar, or a girl’s collar.

Nell: Rubbish. Gladys has a pink sequinned collar. You wouldn’t see Knitwear Wolf wearing it.

Me: You wouldn’t see Knitwear Wolf ever wearing a collar. He’s a wolf.

Nell: The Cat wouldn’t agree with our collars.

Me: That’s because it only wears diamond collars.

Nell: It’s a diamond choker, not a collar. Do keep up.

Me: Anyway, I thought you liked the new walk. It’s much longer and there are loads of places to explore.

Nell: I’m a creature of habit. I don’t like changes.

Me: Well, I’m afraid life is full of changes. Especially at the moment. So let’s just make the best of it.

Nell: If one of the changes is you giving me sensible advice then we need to stop that right now. It’s all wrong.

Me: It is, isn’t it?

Nell: Yes. It’s most disconcerting.

Me: I was right though, wasn’t I?

Nell: You were. Stop it. You’re doing it again.

Me: What?

Nell: Being wise and sensible.

Me: Gosh. Yes. How unlike myself.

Nell: Well, I would like the real you back now, please.

Me: Maybe I should host Morning Thoughts today?

Nell: Now you are being ridiculous.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
