Nell: You’re up at the crack of dawn again.

Me: Boo and Nigel are early risers and they’re excited about going home today.

Nell: Why? We made them both very welcome.

Me: I know you did but there’s nothing like home.

Nell: True. They loved going to the activity field yesterday.

Me: Yes, they did. They couldn’t stop smiling the whole time. Bless them.

Nell: What were you doing marching around the field like that? You’re still not well.

Me: I’m doing The Walk 30 Miles Challenge this September for Cancer Research. I have to keep my steps up.

Nell: You have to be sensible too, though. Wait until you’re well. Marching round like that. It made me dizzy.

Me: I know what you mean. I might have been a little over enthusiastic.

Nell: You’d better share the link with everyone. There’s absolutely no point in doing this if you don’t get donations.

Me: But I’ve only just started walking.

Nell: Everyone has to begin somewhere.

Me: Okay, this is the link:https://fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/page/saras-giving-page-1388

Nell: Good. I know this charity is close to your heart.

Me: It is.

Nell: Now, have you seen Poppy?

Me: She’s outside on the red cushion.

Nell: With Naughty Nigel?

Me: Yes. He’s on the yellow chair. I think they’re waiting for the sun to come out. I hope it does.

Nell: The weather people have promised us it will later.

Me: Well, that’s something to be joyful about it.

Nell: We have a lot of things to be joyful about and the main one is you’re still here. I know why this challenge is important to you. We’re coming up to the anniversary of your cancer diagnosis.

Me: I was so scared.

Nell: It’s all going to be fine. We can do this.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
