Nell: Are you feeling a little low?
Me: A bit.
Nell: You’re very late posting.
Me: Kev and I were up at 4:30am to take Chris to the station so we had a sleep when we got back.
Nell: Why wasn’t I included? I always go to the station with you.
Me: I know you do but when we looked into the living room you were asleep on your sofa and it didn’t seem right to wake you.
Nell: I would have made an exception for Chris.
Me: I know you would.
Nell: He’ll be back before you know it.
Me: I hope so. It feels like he only just arrived. The time seemed to fly by.
Nell: Time does that when you’re having fun.
Nell: Still we’ve made lots of happy memories.
Me: We have.
Nell: Now, did you notice anything suspicious when we were on the beach yesterday?
Nell: Fortunately I had my binoculars with me so I was able to spot it.
Me: Was it a seal?
Nell: No, I have more than enough seals in my life at the moment. I’m thinking of giving Princess a pair of gloves.
Me: That’s kind. From Knitwear Wolf’s Autumn range?
Nell: I don’t care as long as it stops the sound of clapping.
Me: It’s a seal thing
Nell: Anyway, where was I?
Me: A suspicious something was on the beach.
Nell: It wasn’t on the beach it was lurking near the beach.
Me: Was it a Canada Goose? Only Ginger and the gang are back.
Nell: No, it was Lionel King’s ship and what do you mean by gang?
Me: Ginger brought a few friends this time.
Nell: Isn’t incessant clapping enough? Now I’m going to have to deal with constant honking.
