Outrageous Behaviour

Nell: I can’t begin to tell you my horror when Poppy and Gladys jumped out of the cake dressed as Father Christmas.

Me: Was The Queen startled?

Nell: Her Majesty has excellent manners and concealed it well.

Me: Were they taken to the tower?

Nell: No. The Queen was actually rather amused.

Me: There you are then.

Nell: It was outrageous behaviour. I should have guessed something was wrong when I heard the sawing during tea.

Me: Sawing?

Nell: I thought it was David at first. He’s an awfully loud chewer and the ham was quite thickly cut.

Me: What happened?

Nell: Poppy had trouble lifting the lid of the cake box so she used her sword to cut her way out.

Me: Lucky she had her sword with her.

Nell: She always does.

Me: I’m surprised they managed to stay in the box for such a long journey.

Nell: They had a whole picnic of their own in there, along with a lemon drizzle cake that had seen better days although The Queen liked it.

Me: Did they join you for tea?

Nell: Yes. Poppy sat next to The Queen and Gladys danced while David sang ‘We wish you a Merry Christmas.’

Me: Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy saving the day.

Nell: He needed to after the boiled eggs incident.

Me: I knew there would be eggs.

Nell: There wouldn’t have been eggs if David hadn’t asked for them.

Me: What happened?

Nell: The Queen asked him if he was enjoying his tea and he said he would love a boiled egg if she had any going.

Me: Was she shocked?

Nell: Not at all. She said she wouldn’t mind one too.

Me: You couldn’t make it up.

Nell: I think we both know you could.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
