An Early Start and A Magical Wedding

Nell: Remind me why we’re having breakfast this early on a Sunday, please?

Me: Naughty Nigel and Boo need reassurance.

Nell: Could we change it to Naughty Boo? He stuck his tongue out at me.

Me: You know what it’s like when you’re sleeping over at a strange place, Nell. You often wake early or don’t sleep that well.

Nell: It’s Sunday. It’s supposed to be a day of rest.

Me: I know.

Nell: Thank goodness Sunday means two breakfasts. David would never last until lunch.

Me: What time is the Cake Competition?

Nell: Not until this afternoon. Poppy is entering her lemon drizzle.

Me: I’m not sure that’s allowed.

Nell: Why not?

Me: Dave’s the judge. He could be accused of bias.

Nell: Poppy usually wins anyway.

Me: She can’t.

Nell: You tell her. Now, tomorrow is the puppies’ birthday.

Me: Yes. It’s Alex’s daughter Abi’s birthday too.

Nell: The first without her mother.

Me: Yes. Thank goodness for little Tobias. Children are such a comfort.

Nell: They are. How was Charlotte’s birthday dinner at the Cottage Hotel?

Me: Absolutely magical. There was a wedding on the beach and we watched the celebrations from the terrace as the sun came down.

Nell: How lovely.

Me: All the guests lined up along the sea wall as the bride and groom sailed past.

Nell: Dogs are allowed on the terrace.

Me: We didn’t go out there until after dinner.

Nell: Anyway, back to David and Harriet. I’ve organised a bouncy castle and the Whippets Institute Big Band is arriving at 5pm.

Me: Today?

Nell: Of course not. Today is Sunday. Do keep up.

Me: So, all we have to do today is enjoy Sunday Songs and Poppy’s roast.

Nell: Don’t forget our second breakfast and the Cake Competition.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
