Me: There’s nothing like a walk along the beach to lift the spirits. The sea was amazing. All wild and frothy.
Nell: Now, today is Thanksgiving in the United States so we would like to wish all our American friends a very Happy Thanksgiving.
Me: Yes, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you out there for the amazing support you’ve given me since my cancer diagnosis.
Nell: It means a great deal to Sara and she appreciates every single comment.
Me: This has been truly one of the most difficult times I have ever been through and if I’m honest I am still struggling to cope with it.
Nell: You have your good and bad days.
Me: I do and just reading your kind and supportive posts really lifts me up so thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are such a wonderful group of people.
Nell: And this is why we’ve decided to celebrate our own Thanksgiving.
Me: Yes. We have a great deal to be thankful for.
Nell: Yes, including roast turkey with all the trimmings.
Me: Will John the Doberman be joining us?
Nell: Poppy has asked John to carve the turkey.
Me: Gosh. That is an honour.
Nell: Why aren’t you wearing a hat?
Me: I didn’t know I had to.
Nell: You can’t give thanks without a hat. You’d better choose one from The Cat’s dressing up box.
Me: Or I could just pull a cracker.
Nell: Crackers are for later.
Me: Fair enough. Is that singing?
Nell: Yes, the Welsh Corgi Choir are joining us for Songs of Thanks and bacon sandwiches.
Me: I thought we were having turkey.
Nell: Turkey’s for later. You can’t give thanks without bacon.
Me: Of course. Sorry.
