Me: Wasn’t it exciting when Kev and Harriet found a rainbow? You could see all the colours, even the purple.
Nell: They didn’t find it. It found them. Rainbows do as they please. Kev was particularly excited, however, and his dance moves are definitely improving.
Me: Well, I always see rainbows as a good sign. There’s something magical about them.
Nell: A splash of colour on a grey day is always welcome.
Me: Maybe we will find a pot of gold at the end.
Nell: I wouldn’t hold your breath.
Me: Stop being so cynical. You never know.
Nell: I think I do. Now, is Chris’s room ready? He flies tonight.
Me: It will be. Just a few finishing touches.
Nell: I’m glad you are having your hair done this afternoon. It will make you feel good.
Me: I want to look my best for Chris.
Nell: Chris won’t care how you look.
Me: I can’t believe I am finally going to see him again. It’s been so long.
Nell: Well, you are and please don’t track his flight through the night.
Me: I might have to.
Nell: Talking of hair, what do you think about David’s?
Me: Lovely and smooth.
Nell: Yes, although not very American.
Me: Did I see Poppy with her sword?
Nell: Yes, she’s rehearsing with Stephen Seagull later so she needs to be prepared.
Me: I thought I might post a list of contestants and judges on our Conversations with Nell page so people know what’s going on.
Nell: Good idea.
Me: I think the rainbow is a sign that things are going to get better, Nell. That good times are ahead.
Nell: I think you might be right.
Me: Only one more sleep.
Nell: So make sure you get some rest.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
