Making Memories

Me: What are you doing up here on the bed with the others?

Nell: Just keeping an eye on you.

Me: Thank you.

Nell: You went to Hope Cove without me.

Me: I know but we had to sit inside, Nell. The weather was too grizzly to sit outside.

Nell: Grizzly?

Me: Sea mists and a bitingly cold wind.

Nell: The weather doesn’t matter when you’re by the sea.

Me: No. The children loved it. They were climbing on rocks and exploring caves.

Nell: Yes, I can see that from the photos.

Me: Jonathan is feeling a lot better which is a big relief, especially to Faye who has missed her big brother playing with her.

Nell: We know. Why do you think David has been wearing a tiara and I’m covered in a blanket?

Me: She likes to keep you warm.

Nell: Any news from the hospital about your sister Alex?

Me: There’s not much change. Her daughter said she thinks she was slightly more aware of them and she nodded a few times.

Nell: That’s a good sign. It’s going to take time.

Me: I know.

Nell: You’re going to see her tomorrow, aren’t you?

Me: Yes. I’m hoping she will realise I’m there.

Nell: She will. Don’t you worry about that. Just keep talking to her and telling her she’s loved.

Me: I will.

Nell: And remember we’ll all be waiting for you when you get home.

Me: That’s a huge comfort.

Nell: Now, Alice and the children leave on Sunday and I know you’ll be sad but they will be back in August.

Me: Yes.

Nell: So just concentrate on that.

Me: I’m taking one day at a time to be honest.

Nell: Alex will get through this. Look how far she’s come.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
