Nell Supervises The Family

Me: Alice and I took some lovely photos on the beach yesterday. Thank you for supervising the children.

Nell: My pleasure. I did wonder if keeping the shells they were gathering in a poo bag was the best idea.

Me: It was all I had on me at the time. It was perfectly clean.

Nell: People were wondering why you let a child carry it around.

Me: Never mind. They had fun and it did the job so that’s all that matters.

Nell: I suppose so.

Me: You can be awfully strong willed, can’t you?

Nell: Where’s that come from?

Me: You were supposed to go home in the dog car with Kev and the others but you absolutely refused to leave and turned round and walked back to me.

Nell: I wasn’t leaving you all.

Me: I know and I was really touched.

Nell: Kev understood completely.

Me: Yes, he did, but I’m not so sure about the other dogs. Harriet kept running back to get you.

Nell: I always wait for you on walks. You know that.

Me: Yes.

Nell: You can be a little slow sometimes and need guiding along.

Me: I do.

Nell: Besides, someone had to keep an eye on those young ones.

Me: True.

Nell: Now, it’s extremely stormy weather today so I need you to promise to drive very carefully to the hospital.

Me: I will.

Nell: Seeing Alex like this always upsets you so just take your time and focus on the road.

Me: Don’t worry.

Nell: I shall be very glad when you’re home with us again.

Me: And I shall be glad to be home.

Nell: I know.

Me: We made some wonderful memories, didn’t we?

Nell: Yes, and we’ve not finished doing that yet.

Me: No. You’re right. Sorry.
