Me: Poppy won again at Hide and Seek.
Nell: Yes, David and Harriet simply couldn’t find her anywhere.
Me: But she always hides behind the tree stumps.
Nell: Not always.
Me: Almost always.
Nell: Sometimes she’s in the big tyre.
Nell: And she walks around the tree stumps.
Me: She finds them immediately.
Nell: Of course she does. How on earth can you hide anything as big as David?
Me: Did you see the tennis? Wasn’t Emma amazing?
Nell: Yes. It is always a joy when a youngster shines.
Me: Shine is exactly what she did. We have a new star.
Nell: Talking of stars, the photo shoot has been delayed so I have a little more time to decide on my hat.
Nell: Problems with the fourth judge.
Me: Who is the fourth judge?
Nell: I have no idea. They are keeping it very hush hush.
Me: I’m ever so pleased Babycakes Gillespie is entering Strictly. Although I’ll miss the coffee and bagels when he’s training.
Nell: Life can still go on without a morning bagel, you know.
Me: I’d like to see you give up your toast and marmalade.
Nell: Don’t be silly. As if that would ever happen.
Me: Did I hear the Welsh corgi choir belting out show tunes this morning?
Nell: Belting out? They were just singing enthusiastically. You know Sundays are for singing. And roasts.
Me: It seemed a bit louder this morning.
Nell: Were the llamas wearing jumpsuits?
Me: There was an awful lot of cartwheeling.
Nell: I’ve told them not to do that. Were the llamas cartwheeling too?
Me: What do you mean ‘too’? The Welsh corgi choir don’t do cartwheels, Nell? They’ve only got little legs.
Me: Yes, you did. Sorry.
