Harriet is Feeling Better

Me: Good news. Harriet and I went to up to bed really early yesterday evening and slept the whole night through snuggled up together.

Nell: Yes, in fact Harriet is still asleep. She certainly seems to have got over whatever it was.

Me: We both feel so much better for a good long rest.

Nell: So, can we finally show everyone the photos we took when we went to the beach?

Me: We can. It didn’t feel right to share them when Harriet wasn’t well.

Nell: Everything was looking beautiful.

Me: Yes, and I was especially glad to see the island was still there.

Nell: Where else would it be?

Me: It’s up for sale, you know.

Nell: Whoever buys it isn’t going to pick it up and take it anywhere. It’s an island.

Me: I know that really but in my head I thought they might.

Nell: I worry about you sometimes. I really do. Goodness only knows what’s going on in your head.

Me: Anyway, it was lovely to be back on the beach and to see so many people enjoying themselves in the sunshine.

Nell: Which seems to have disappeared again, by the way.

Me: Yesterday was awful, wasn’t it? Lots of useless rain.

Nell: What does that mean?

Me: Not enough to help the garden but enough to make you feel all damp and miserable.

Nell: You were tired.

Me: True.

Nell: Harriet wanted me to say a big thank you to everyone for the get well soon wishes. They meant a lot to her.

Me: Yes, and thank you for your ideas of how to raise funds. Kev and I are going to open the shop again soon and I have a few ideas too.

Nell: We will get there. Just believe.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
