Nell: You do realise it’s 6am, don’t you?
Me: I couldn’t sleep any longer but I did sleep well last night.
Nell: I was sleeping really well until you woke me.
Me: You told me I could always talk to you no matter the time.
Nell: I did, didn’t I?
Me: I’ve been re-reading all the kind messages people sent me. They’re such a comfort.
Me: I’m so glad we went for a walk on the beach yesterday.
Nell: So am I.
Me: Poppy says today is Spoil Sara Sunday.
Nell: You didn’t wake Poppy too, did you?
Me: She was already awake. She got out of Sandringham Palace first thing this morning and joined me in bed.
Nell: I wish you wouldn’t call Poppy’s bed Sandringham Palace.
Me: Poppy has two palaces. Buckingham downstairs and Sandringham upstairs.
Nell: Good grief.
Me: Anyway, Poppy says I’m allowed to choose the roast and can have two breakfasts today. Cereal first so as not to wake everyone.
Nell: Too late for that.
Me: And smoked salmon and scrambled eggs later.
Nell: I didn’t know we had any smoked salmon.
Me: The Cat brought it over for me yesterday.
Nell: How unusually kind.
Me: The Cat can be kind.
Nell: It doesn’t usually share its smoked salmon with anyone.
Me: Poppy also said you had come to a decision about Myfanwy.
Nell: Yes. In view of the difficult times we’re all going through at the moment we decided Forgiveness was called for.
Me: Does that mean Myfanwy is back in the Welsh Corgi Choir?
Nell: It does.
Me: She must be delighted.
Nell: Yes, and so is Rupert.
Me: Do you think he still has a thing for Myfanwy?
Nell: I think we should just enjoy the sunrise.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
