Me: What are Harriet and Poppy doing? They seem extremely focussed.
Nell: Watching llamas.
Me: In pyjamas?
Nell: And dressing gowns. Do try and be a little realistic.
Me: I wouldn’t have thought a dressing gown would be warm enough in this weather.
Nell: They are Gliding with Gladys.
Me: Is Gladys doing her classes outside?
Nell: Yes. Since lockdown. Our Penguin is filming them. Gladys has quite a following you know.
Me: It’s important to keep active during this difficult time.
Nell: Yes, personally I prefer a walk in the countryside, or on the beach.
Me: Me too. I’m not a glidey sort of person.
Nell: I don’t think there is such a word as glidey, but I know what you mean.
Me: Is that Princess rolling down the hill?
Nell: Let me see.
Me: It looks like a seal from here, but it might be a sheep, I suppose, or a cow.
Nell: Cows don’t roll down hills and neither do sheep. And they’ve got legs.
Me: The rolling might be part of Glide with Gladys.
Nell: It’s definitely Princess and she’s taking a few of the Welsh corgis with her.
Me: Oh my goodness. That’s hilarious. It’s like watching a bowling ball. I hope Our Penguin is filming. This is going to go viral.
Nell: Is that all you care about? Innocent corgis are being swept off their feet by a huge seal and you want it on camera.
Me: They seem fine, Nell. They’re all standing up again.
Nell: Like skittles?
Me: You said it.
Nell: I knew that was what you were thinking.
Me: Well, that’s made my morning.
Nell: Stop laughing and go and tell Poppy to make some hot sweet tea. The corgis are going to need it after that.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
