Kev isn’t feeling well

Me: It’s a shame the weather isn’t a bit brighter for all the tourists down here on half term holiday.

Nell: It’s the end of October.

Me: I know but it’s ever so grey and rainy.

Nell: I thought you said being by the sea was always wonderful.

Me: Yes, I actually love it when it’s wild.

Nell: Well then. The tourists probably do too.

Me: Harriet doesn’t care. She just dashes into the sea rain or shine.

Nell: It’s her happy place.

Me: Yes, bless her.

Nell: Now, Kev has a croaky voice today and is feeling very achy.

Me: I think the stress and strain of the last few weeks has finally got to him.

Nell: I agree. It’s been an extremely worrying time and he’s absolutely exhausted.

Me: He’s been my rock through all this.

Nell: He has. But we’re all going to have to look after him for a change.

Me: Yes, we are.

Nell: Starting with a nice cup of tea with honey and lemon.

Me: Good idea.

Nell: David has offered to sing for him.

Me: Is that a good idea?

Nell: He’s been practising some sea shanties in the hope that he can join Tony’s crew.

Me: Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy.

Nell: Poppy is making chicken casserole for lunch with lots of vegetables and mashed potato.

Me: Just the thing on a cold day.

Nell: And Rupert is going to join Kev by the fire to read the morning papers.

Me: There’s definitely a lot to discuss.

Nell: As Kev has a croaky voice I will do the discussing.

Me: You’re joining Kev and Rupert then, are you?

Nell: I shall be by Kev’s side at all times.

Me: You always have his back, don’t you?

Nell: And yours.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
