Monday Morning Blues

Me: I think Dave and Snoopy have the Monday morning blues. It’s a horrible rainy day out there.

Nell: It’s also still Sunday in Vancouver.

Me: Okay, Clever Clogs, but Snoopy still looks fed up.

Nell: That’s your fault.

Me: Why?

Nell: You keep forgetting to remind people about the fundraiser.

Me: Yes, I do.

Nell: And the competition closes on Wednesday, 16th.

Me: Which is Kev’s birthday.

Nell: I know it is and he’s going to be announcing the winner on Thursday.

Me: Of course.

Nell: So, if anyone would like their animal to have the chance to be included in a Conversations with Nell story please donate £25 or more to our fundraiser.

Me: Yes.

Nell: Well, give them the link then.

Me: Right. It’s https://gofund.me/42cc1159

Nell: Just to remind you we have the chance to turn these stories into an animated series for television.

Me: Please help us achieve this and thank you again to those of you who already donated. It means a lot.

Nell: Sara writes and posts a story every day and has been doing this for five years. Let’s make sure she keeps doing this for the next five too.

Me: That’s an awful lot of conversations.

Nell: Tell me about it.

Me: Writing is all I’ve ever really wanted to do since I was a child when I would entertain my little sisters Charlotte and Alex with my stories.

Nell: You’re thinking of Alex now, aren’t you?

Me: Yes. Sometimes it hits me afresh that she’s gone and I feel completely overwhelmed.

Nell: Grief comes in waves. You just have to go with it.

Me: Alex would have been so excited about the animation series. She knew it was my dream.

Nell: She still knows. Trust me.

Me: I hope so. Sorry.
