Me: What do you think of my new all concealing hat? Isn’t it gorgeous?
Nell: It’s extremely fluffy.
Me: It was so kind of Scarlett to give it to me. Unexpected visits can be delightful, can’t they?
Nell: It depends on the visitors.
Me: And you were able to see Naughty Nigel and Boo again.
Nell: That was less nice.
Nell: Nigel became rather jealous of Harriet.
Me: He was just feeling a bit insecure.
Nell: Harriet was only having a brief cuddle with Scarlett.
Me: Nigel didn’t like them being so close.
Nell: He did not. He wasn’t happy until he had driven her away.
Me: That isn’t entirely true now, is it? Harriet decided to leave after she realised he was feeling left out.
Nell: How do you know?
Me: I was there.
Nell: Why ask me then?
Me: I wanted to hear your version.
Nell: Did you see Boo kiss Harriet?
Me: I did.
Nell: David was extremely angry about it.
Me: Yes, he wasn’t best pleased. He even did his Big Boy’s growl. Bless him.
Nell: You’re not actually going to wear that hat outside are you?
Me: Of course I am. In fact I thought it might be perfect for the Blubbery Wedding on Saturday.
Nell: Don’t get me started on that wedding. You do realise Princess has chosen the Welsh Corgi Choir as her bridesmaids, don’t you?
Nell: And some of them can’t even swim.
Me: Oh dear.
Nell: The Cat is trying to incorporate life vests into their dresses which is not easy believe me.
Me: I can imagine. Who is the Best Man?
Nell: Your writer friend Harry.
Me: Does he know?
Nell: I hope so. He and Roger go swimming together most days.
Me: Of course. Sorry.
