Me: We had a really lovely day yesterday, didn’t we?
Nell: Yes. I must say I enjoyed it enormously.
Me: Kev was determined to get me out and about again as I’ve been feeling rather old and sad recently.
Nell: And he was right. It did you the world of good.
Me: We went to the Cottage Hotel for lunch and I bumped into my writer friend Michael and his wife who are over here from the Netherlands.
Nell: You did.
Me: It was wonderful to actually meet him as we have only ever seen each other on zoom.
Nell: Are they enjoying their visit?
Me: Yes, they’re loving Devon and especially meeting other writers. The weather has been perfect for them too which is an added bonus.
Nell: Do you know it hasn’t rained here since 14th May?
Me: Gosh. That’s a long time.
Nell: Yes, especially with a hosepipe ban.
Me: I hate to say it but we’re in need of some rain.
Nell: We are. Anyway, back to yesterday.
Me: Yes. After lunch we drove to your favourite place by the river.
Nell: I like it there.
Me: And you and Kev climbed down the river bank and waded into the water.
Nell: Kev didn’t go in the water and I wouldn’t call it wading.
Me: You were awfully adventurous. You went right out into the middle. I was quite worried.
Nell: Don’t be silly. I was perfectly safe.
Me: You certainly weren’t going to let your arthritis stop you.
Nell: Of course not.
Me: And then we went to the farm shop and bought some treats.
Nell: Did I see ice cream?
Me: You did.
Nell: Where is it now?
Me: In the freezer for later.
Nell: Sharing is Caring. Don’t forget that.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
