Me: Is something strange going on?
Nell: Why would you say that?
Me: There’s been an awful lot of noise this morning and the llamas are wearing sequinned dressing gowns.
Nell: A little impractical for dancing in a field, perhaps, but understandable in the circumstances.
Me: What circumstances?
Nell: Have you noticed anything different about me?
Me: Not really. You’re wearing a rather ostentatious crown for a Friday morning but I’m sure you have your reasons.
Nell: I do.
Me: Has it got something to do with Arctic Bob?
Nell: It has.
Me: And the fact he’s wearing Dave’s top hat and a feather boa.?
Me: Did they find The Cat’s jewellery box?
Nell: Yes, Sherlock Martin, they did.
Me: That’s wonderful news. Lionel King must be furious.
Nell: It’s his fault for spending too much time in the ready meal section at Barks and Spencer.
Me: It’s easily done. So, what happened?
Nell: Knitwear Wolf and Beauregard chased the Beefies off the ship with the help of Owl Pacino and the Royal Owl Force.
Me: Good for them.
Nell: They sailed the ship back escorted by Arctic Bob, Princess and the Navy Seals.
Me: How did they get the box to shore?
Nell: Arctic Bob is very strong, you know. Once on land the box was placed in Rupert’s sidecar with Princess and he drove it home to The Cat.
Me: And tumultuous applause, no doubt.
Nell: Princess clapped all the way.
Me: It’s a seal thing.
Nell: Lionel had to take his shopping home on the bus.
Me: Does he even have a home?
Nell: Of sorts. He’s staying at the hotel on Burgh Island again.
Me: I wish I’d been there.
Nell: Our Penguin filmed it all. It’s trending on YouChewed.
Me: Of course. Sorry.
