Hugs at the door again

Me; Wasn’t it priceless when Dave realised Tony could come through the outside gate again?

Nell: Yes. Harriet and I knew it was Tony at the door and got there first.

Me: You were all so excited.

Nell: We haven’t been able to see him for a few weeks because of isolating.

Me: Yes. Dave did a double take and then leapt into Tony’s arms.

Nell: I’m glad Tony was expecting it. David is not the lightest of creatures.

Me: It wasn’t the same greeting him over the gate, was it?

Nell: There’s nothing like a real cuddle.

Me: Yes. I wonder when I’m going to be able to do that with Alice and Chris again. Not to mention Jonathan and Faye.

Nell: You need to get well first and restrictions from Canada need to be lifted.

Me: Yes. I know. It’s just been so long, Nell.

Nell: You are not the only one. The main thing is everyone stays safe.

Me: Yes, it is.

Nell: Now, Harriet was sick again after eating yesterday. Even though it was only rice.

Me: I know. I’m worried about her.

Nell: Kev is waiting to see how she copes with a light breakfast but if she is sick again he is taking her to see the vet.

Me: Yes. My poor darling girl. At least she wasn’t ill in the night.

Nell: She needs to know that sleeping on your bed is only for poorly animals.

Me: And Poppy.

Nell: Poppy has special privileges. Everyone knows that.

Me: The fish stew was delicious, by the way.

Nell: I wouldn’t know. We had bacon sandwiches.

Me: I hope Poppy wasn’t annoyed.

Nell: She made them. She wasn’t going to let us go hungry. It’s back to Sunday roasts next week.

Me: Of course. Sorry.
