A Wonderful Day

Nell: Are you tracking Chris and Shannon’s flight?

Me: They’re only about two hours away now. Their flight was delayed by four hours.

Nell: How long have you been tracking them?

Me: Only off and on.

Nell: You’re supposed to be sleeping.

Me: You know what I’m like.

Nell: It’s all going to end in tears if you don’t get some sleep. I wish you would listen to me.

Me: Talking of not listening, can we have a quick word about yesterday, please?

Nell: What a wonderful day. Sunday Songs followed by a visit to the Garden Centre. I particularly enjoyed our walk along the river.

Me: You mean in the river.

Nell: Yes. I did a little paddling.

Me: The river was moving quite fast, Nell.

Nell: It was rather lively.

Me: I asked you not to climb down there but as soon as my back was turned you were off down the river bank and straight into the water.

Nell: I make my own decisions.

Me: We’re ladies of a certain age, Nell. We’re not as sprightly as we used to be.

Nell: Speak for yourself.

Me: And then you asked Faye to pick you a flower and you’re not supposed to do that.

Nell: We didn’t know. The children had a marvellous time.

Me: We all did. It was a magical day.

Nell: There you are then.

Me: You’re exasperating

Nell: And today is going to be even better.

Me: Yes, it is. I’m finally going to have my whole family together again. It’s been three years.

Nell: And now it’s only a matter of hours. I shall be accompanying you to collect Chris and Shannon from the station.

Me: I’m not sure there’s room.

Nell: We will make room. They’re my family too.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
