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.
