One Thing After Another

Me: Is that Alice’s blanket you’re lying on?

Nell: It might be.

Me: No need to look guilty. I can’t bring myself to move Faye’s shoes from the window sill.

Nell: I noticed.

Me: Knitwear Wolf gave that blanket to Alice.

Nell: I know.

Me: He’s such a kind and caring animal.

Nell: Yes.

Me: And so patient.

Nell: Don’t start. I’m afraid David’s going to have to go to the vets.

Me: Why?

Nell: He injured his toe playing football with the llamas.

Me: Oh no.

Nell: He split his nail.

Me: Poor darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy.

Nell: He’s in the kitchen now being comforted with a cuddle from Harriet and a bacon sandwich.

Me: Honestly, it’s just one thing after another. And I seem to have no energy at all.

Nell: You’re just tired.

Me: My get up and go seems to have got up and gone.

Nell: It’ll come back. Any news from the hospital about your sister?

Me: Yes. They removed the tube yesterday but she simply wasn’t strong enough to manage on her own so they’ve had to put it back in.

Nell: Oh dear.

Me: They’ve sedated her to help her cope and say they will try and remove it again in the next few days.

Nell: Poor Alex. That procedure is painful.

Me: Yes. I hate to think of her suffering.

Nell: I know. She’s been through a lot but she’s a fighter and she will get through this.

Me: I hope so.

Nell: I think a walk on the beach is what you need. Being by the sea always puts thing in perspective.

Me: It does. It’s my happy place.

Nell: We have a great deal to be thankful for. Living where we do surrounded by love.

Me: You’re right. Sorry.
