Nell: Poppy’s a little over excited this morning.
Me: So am I.
Nell: She challenged Manuel to a pancake tossing competition.
Me: I wouldn’t have thought she had a chance. Manuel’s an octopus.
Nell: She didn’t. There were pancakes flying everywhere.
Me: Oh dear.
Nell: Fortunately David was on paw to help with the clearing up.
Me: Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy. Where’s Poppy now?
Nell: On the sofa playing Bitey Faces with Harriet. I asked her to calm down but she refused.
Me: What about Dave? Is he playing too?
Nell: David is far too full of pancakes to join in so he’s just watching from your chair.
Me: Why is Poppy in such a good mood?
Nell: The family are arriving today. We’re all in a good mood.
Me: I’ve been up since 5am. I couldn’t sleep.
Nell: You will tonight.
Me: Yes. I’m just hoping this dreadful weather changes. All my plans are for outdoors.
Nell: I thought you and Jonathan were going to write a story?
Me: We are. I’ve been thinking of writing some children’s stories for a long time so I thought we could do it together.
Nell: Sounds like an inside activity to me.
Me: You’re right.
Nell: How’s the fundraising going?
Me: We’re at £4,585 which is amazing. Thank you so much to everyone who donated. It really means a lot.
Nell: Don’t forget the competition is also still running. If you donate at least £25 your animal could feature in one of the Conversations with Nell stories and have a part in my movie.
Me: Here’s the link again: https://gofund.me/547e2a25. Please share it if you can.
Nell: We’re going to make this happen, you know.
Me: I hope so.
Nell: I’m not completely sure how, but we will.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
