Home Again

Me: I don’t think the puppies are ever going to let me out of their sight again. Dave watched over me until I fell asleep and Harriet was there when I woke this morning.

Nell: Even Poppy was overcome with emotion when she saw you come through the door.

Me: Yes. She sprang into my arms and kept licking me over and over and Harriet just squealed.

Nell: They were all quite beside themselves.

Me: My Big Brave Beautiful Boy kept walking around me proudly with a tea towel in his mouth.

Nell: It’s his mayoral walk. He’s been practising for days.

Me: You seemed rather pleased to see me at the station.

Nell: I didn’t squeal.

Me: No. You wagged your tail really hard and we had a wonderful cuddle.

Nell: We did.

Me: Seeing you and Kev waiting for me was so lovely after such a long day of travelling.

Nell: You’re going to have to relax today. No arguments. I heard you coughing.

Me: Yes. I’m very tired.

Nell: And missing the children and grandchildren I expect.

Me: Alice sent me a photo of Jonathan at his desk at school this morning. He looks so happy. Bless him.

Nell: I’m very glad you were able to be there but even more so that you are home again. Here is where you belong.

Me: I know.

Nell: So, where’s that bear?

Me: Are you talking about Herr Hoffmann?

Nell: Of course. I fully expected him to get off the train with you.

Me: Funny you should say that.

Nell: Here we go.

Me: Unfortunately the airlines are a bit funny about bears on planes but it seems bears on trains are more acceptable so he might hop on the Eurostar and come over.

Nell: Good grief.

Me: Sorry.
