Me: I had a dreadful night.
Nell: I know. Just keep reading to us and you will feel better.
Me: It’s actually a rather comforting book, isn’t it?
Nell: Yes. It’s the ideal Mother’s Day present. That’s why we told people about it.
Me: It was kind of Amazon to drop the price.
Nell: Good grief. It has nothing to do with kindness you know. Amazon is a business.
Me: Well, I’m pleased because it is meant to be shared.
Nell: Keep reading then. We just got to a good part.
Me: I think the puppies have fallen asleep.
Nell: They are just happy to be with you and they love the sound of your voice.
Me: I do hope people are enjoying the audio book too. It was such an honour for me to record it with Sunny.
Nell: I’m sure they are.
Me: I had a lovely chat with my little sister Alex yesterday.
Me: She is such a sensible, caring girl.
Nell: She’s not really a girl. She’s a grandmother too.
Me: She will always be a girl to me.
Nell: And the puppies will always be puppies.
Me: Yes. Any news on the new dog bed?
Nell: Terry said it’s on its way.
Me: How does Terry know?
Nell: They must use Book a Beefy for their deliveries.
Me: Beefies can’t carry beds.
Nell: No, but they can organise someone else to do it.
Me: I’m glad Gladys was able to organise a full clipping for Alejandro.
Nell: It fell under emergency treatment. You can’t have a half shorn alpaca.
Me: No. Although those half cut hairstyles are still popular with the shaved one side and long the other.
Nell: Don’t even think about it. Now, can you read on, please?
Me: Yes. Sorry.
