Me: Faye and Jonathan have become part of your pack, haven’t they?
Nell: I’m not sure I would use the word ‘pack’ but yes, they are treasured members of our team.
Me: You’re going to miss the cuddles and chats.
Nell: We’re all going to miss those. Stop dwelling.
Me: What were you and Faye discussing in the activity field?
Nell: Rainbows and our favourite ice creams, if you must know. Faye likes a mango sorbet and I’m rather partial to strawberries and cream.
Nell: Now, today is Sunday so the children will be joining us for Sunday Songs.
Nell: The Welsh Corgi Choir have decided to sing the theme song from Paw Patrol.
Me: Must they? I’ve heard that song one too many times already.
Nell: The children love it.
Nell: David, Harriet and Poppy are also featuring in a Paw Patrol extravaganza dressed as Mighty Pups with the llamas as naughty animals and The Cat as a stylish villain.
Me: That is exciting.
Nell: Poppy has been asked not to use her sword, or cutlass, but nobody is sure if she will comply.
Me: She rarely does.
Nell: She might this time as the children are watching.
Nell: There will be no roast today, by the way, as you, Alice and the children are all going to tea with your sister Alex and Hattie Button.
Me: Sundays are roast days.
Nell: Cottage pie will suffice. It’s the children’s favourite.
Me: Why does time have to fly when you’re having fun? It feels like only yesterday I was getting ready to go to the airport to collect them.
Nell: Try and live in the moment. If you keep dwelling on tomorrow you will miss today.
Me: You’re right as usual. Sorry.
