Kev comes home

Me: Can I just say a huge thank you to everyone for your lovely birthday messages and get well wishes for Kev. Your support really means a lot.

Nell: It does.

Me: It was quite a day, wasn’t it?

Nell: It certainly was. The main thing is that Kev is home and the operation went well.

Me: Yes, I couldn’t concentrate on anything until I heard he was safe.

Nell: None of us could. David spent most of the day waiting at the front door.

Me: And Poppy looking out of the window.

Nell: FaceTiming with Alice and the grandchildren and Chris and Shannon was lovely.

Me: Yes, it was. Andre made a cake and the children had party hats and sparklers. It felt like I was there with them.

Nell: It was kind of Charlotte and Scarlett to call by.

Me: She knew I would be worrying.

Nell: Harriet behaved shamelessly. Throwing herself at Scarlett like that.

Me: I think everyone got involved.

Nell: We were all a little emotional.

Me: Talking of emotional, I’ve never seen you as overcome as you were when Kev came through the door.

Nell: He means the world to me.

Me: I know he does.

Nell: I had been strong all day but when I actually saw him and knew he was safely home I had to let my emotions run free.

Me: I completely understand. I was exactly the same.

Nell: Now, yesterday wasn’t a proper birthday so we are extending it into today.

Me: How wonderful.

Nell: There will be lots of cuddles and cake and steak and chips for dinner.

Me: That’s Kev’s favourite meal.

Nell: Yes. We thought that’s what you would want.

Me: You were right. You know me so well.

Nell: We are family.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
