First Advent and Cauliflower Cheese

Me: Why is Poppy is looking so fierce?

Nell: Somebody ate the cauliflower cheese.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: She made it earlier to go with the roast beef for lunch and was letting it cool down on the kitchen table.

Me: Very wise. Hot things can’t go in the fridge.

Nell: That’s not the point. When she came back from Sunday Songs the bowl was empty.

Me: If she went to Sunday Songs it must mean the Welsh corgi choir have got their voices back

Nell: Yes, everyone has.

Me: How wonderful. The nastiness must have worn off.

Nell: Going back to the cauliflower cheese incident.

Me: I was hoping you wouldn’t.

Nell: David was late singing his solo.

Me: I expect somebody waylaid him.

Nell: I haven’t heard anyone say waylaid in a long time.

Me: It’s an interesting word isn’t it?

Nell: Anyway, when David finally arrived he had cheese on his chops.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: And a full looking face.

Me: Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy.

Nell: He will be questioned later. Poppy is too busy now. We have several guests for lunch.

Me: It’s an easy mistake to make, Nell. One spoonful leads to another.

Nell: A spoon wasn’t used.

Me: So, how was the semi final yesterday?

Nell: Everyone danced beautifully. I really don’t know who is going to be voted off.

Me: Did Lionel King behave?

Nell: He was a changed lion. All smiles and giving away 10’s like there’s no tomorrow.

Me: Amazing.

Nell: I doubt it but he’s coming to lunch later with Stephen Seagull, Myfanwy and a mystery guest.

Me: I hope they’re not expecting cauliflower cheese.

Nell: They’ll have what they’re given. Now go and light a candle. It’s First Advent. Christmas is on its way.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
