Sara is Over Excited and Nell is Not Amused

Me: I wish you wouldn’t all look at me like that.

Nell: I’m not looking at you at all.

Me: There simply isn’t room to take you with me and the hotel doesn’t take dogs.

Nell: All these weeks we have been counting down to the family arriving and only now do you tell me I am being left at home.

Me: You’re all being left at home. Nell. Including Kev.

Nell: I’d even chosen a welcoming hat.

Me: You could wear it when we arrive back tomorrow.

Nell: Hats are for airports and stations.

Me: That’s a ridiculous thing to say. You’ve just made that up.

Nell: It’s fine. Don’t worry about me.

Me: You’re coming with us on Monday to collect Chris and Shannon from the station.

Nell: Am I really, though? Can I trust you?

Me: Of course you can.

Nell: Anyway, enough of all this betrayal and neglect.

Me: A slight over exaggeration.

Nell: Is your case packed?

Me: More or less. I don’t need much.

Nell: Take a book. They might be delayed.

Me: I hope not. Jonathan and Faye are going to be very tired.

Nell: I think Alice might be somewhat weary by then too.

Me: Gosh, I’m so excited, Nell.

Nell: I know you are. You’ve been awake since 5:30am.

Me: I can’t believe I’m finally going to see them all again. The last time they visited was July.

Nell: I remember it well.

Me: I’m afraid the weather forecast isn’t very good. They are predicting a week of rain.

Nell: Do you think anyone cares about that?

Me: Probably not.

Nell: This visit is about family and cuddles and love.

Me: Yes, it is.

Nell: A little bit of rain isn’t going to make any difference at all.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
