Oh Good, You’re Awake

Nell: Oh good, you’re awake.

Me: Of course I am. Dave is lying on my legs and he’s really heavy.

Nell: He’s Keeping a Close Eye on you.

Me: And you and Harriet?

Nell: Where else would we be?

Me: Were you worried?

Nell: You’re usually awake much earlier.

Me: I was but I put my electric blanket on and fell back to sleep.

Nell: I thought the bed felt nice and warm.

Me: I might have slept longer if Dave hadn’t rested his head on me.

Nell: Oh well, such is life.

Me: You told him to, didn’t you?

Nell: Why would you say that? David is an independent animal with a mind of his own.

Me: He follows your orders.

Nell: Moving on, it’s a lovely sunny day so you will be able to sit outside later and read your book.

Me: I’m looking forward to it.

Nell: Robin and the smaller birds have arranged some entertainment.

Me: Really?

Nell: Probably just hanging upside down from the bird feeder and splashing in the bird bath but they mean well.

Me: I can’t wait.

Nell: Gladys realises that you won’t be gliding for a while.

Me: I never started.

Nell: So Our Penguin is filming it for you.

Me: How kind.

Nell: And Princess and Roger Blubbery will be the audience as soon as they get back from their swim.

Me: I don’t need an audience.

Nell: The llamas do. They can’t live without applause. You know that.

Me: Is Knitwear Wolf taking them down to the sea?

Nell: Yes. He and Myfanwy have some errands to run so they’ll drop them and pick them up later.

Me: Rupert and Myfanwy?

Nell: Don’t look at me like that.

Me: No wonder you’re a bit edgy.

Nell: Nonsense.

Me: Sorry.
