Happy Birthday Tony

Me: It’s Tony the Postman’s birthday today so I thought we should all wish him a very Happy Birthday.

Nell: Yes, Happy Birthday Tony. We would be doing this in person, of course, if he wasn’t away on holiday.

Me: Everybody needs a holiday, Nell. Tony works very hard. He will be back soon.

Nell: Toby is having a holiday with Tony and Sue’s daughter and family while they are away.

Me: Is he?

Nell: Yes, he was telling David about it on WoofsApp.

Me: I hope he’s behaving himself. Tony says he can be a bit of a scallywag. Stealing Sue’s knitting and Tony’s socks.

Nell: I’m afraid he may have inherited that from his Uncle David along with his good looks. David does have a penchant for socks.

Me: He looks an awful lot like Dave, doesn’t he? Sweet boy.

Nell: This is a week of birthdays.

Me: Yes, it is.

Nell: Tony’s today, Shannon’s birthday on Friday and yours on Sunday.

Me: I’m not really going to be celebrating my birthday this year, Nell.

Nell: I beg your pardon?

Me: I’m afraid Kev has to go into hospital on Sunday for another operation so I will driving to and fro to Plymouth.

Nell: Oh dear.

Me: We are hoping he can come home the same day but I will need to look after him, so no partying.

Nell: There can still be cake, you know.

Me: Yes.

Nell: And cuddles.

Me: That would be nice.

Nell: Poppy will cook you something tasty.

Me: I’m not sure Kev will be hungry.

Nell: You have to eat.

Me: Yes.

Nell: Why didn’t you tell me about this before?

Me: I didn’t want to worry you.

Nell: That’s what I’m here for. You and me. Always. Remember?

Me: Yes. Sorry.
