Me: Look at those smiling faces. What’s Dave doing on my computer?
Nell: Zooming with Naughty Nigel and Boo. It’s the Devon Boys Club.
Me: They look so happy.
Nell: They love living in Devon and now there is light at the end of the kennel we will be able to visit them soon.
Me: Yes. I can’t wait until it is safe to do that. Having two sisters living near by and not being able to see them has been very hard.
Nell: When is your first vaccine?
Me: Kev and I are going down to Plymouth on Thursday. I am so excited.
Nell: I am very relieved.
Me: Has Terry gone back to work, by the way?
Nell: Yes. He says he prefers to keep busy. Terry doesn’t like to dwell on things. He is an active kind of seagull.
Me: I saw him delivering a huge parcel to Susan just now.
Nell: That will be her new nest, I expect.
Me: From Fifi La Beefy?
Me: Anyway, you didn’t tell me what happened when Poppy and Terry confronted Squawk.
Nell: Didn’t I?
Nell: That’s probably because I don’t know much about it, except that Poppy seems much happier since then.
Me: Well, she’s not happy now, Nell.
Me: She just ran into the garden waving her sword.
Nell: What’s happening?
Me: She’s attacking Susan’s new nest. She’s cutting it to pieces.
Nell: Sally said this might happen.
Me: There is fluff everywhere.
Nell: I’m afraid it isn’t fluff.
Me: No, it isn’t. You’re going to think I’m silly, but it looks like Poppy’s hair to me just after she’s been clipped.
Nell: I’m not going to think you are silly at all. It is Poppy’s hair.
Me: Oh my goodness. Sorry.
