Happy Anniversary Sara and Kev

Nell: You’re up early for a Sunday.

Me: I’m too excited to sleep. The family arrive tomorrow and there’s so much to do.

Nell: They won’t be here until the evening so you’ve plenty of time.

Me: I want it to be perfect for them.

Nell: They don’t need perfection. They just need home.

Me: You’re right.

Nell: Happy anniversary, by the way.

Me: Can you believe it was 14 years ago?

Nell: Time flies when you’re having fun.

Me: True. It took me a very long time to find my soulmate but I finally did.

Nell: And so did Kev.

Me: Yes. In the words of the amazing Julie Andrews ‘So somewhere in my youth or childhood
I must have done something good.’

Nell: Sunday Songs is dedicated to you and Kev this morning and Poppy is cooking your favourite roast chicken with all the trimmings for lunch.

Me: Wonderful. I hope the Welsh Corgi Choir don’t get too wet in the field. The weather is awful again.

Nell: They have wellington boots and a relentlessly optimistic attitude. Don’t worry about them.

Me: Talking of optimists, Poppy was on top form at the activity field yesterday, wasn’t she? She was bouncing around like a young gazelle.

Nell: Why bring gazelles into it? Poppy is nothing like them. Nervous creatures.

Me: She was yesterday. You’d never think she was 10. I didn’t see you doing a lot of bouncing.

Nell: I’m a lady Labrador of a certain age. We don’t bounce.

Me: Dave and Harriet spent an awful lot of time sniffing the grass.

Nell: Part of the joy of the activity field is the sniffari. You know that.

Me: I do.

Nell: Now, go and join Kev for your anniversary breakfast. This is your special day.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
