Still Waiting

Me: I wish Harriet wouldn’t wait for Poppy at the window. It breaks my heart.

Nell: She says she can’t help it. She knows she isn’t coming back but she can’t stop hoping.

Me: Kev and I do the same thing. I’m constantly expecting to hear her little feet scampering up the stairs.

Nell: I know.

Me: You seem to be coping the best.

Nell: That’s because I’ve got her constantly barking orders at me from above.

Me: How is she?

Nell: Demanding we cook a decent roast on Sunday and insisting David makes her Yorkshire puddings.

Me: Does he know?

Nell: Yes, he’s practising now.

Me: Shel will be delighted.

Nell: Shel our Canadian friend from Vancouver?

Me: Yes.

Nell: The film director organising the animation of Conversations with Nell?

Me: Yes. He’s been in Cannes all week and is coming here for a long weekend.

Nell: Why didn’t you tell me?

Me: I thought I did.

Nell: I’ll need my pearls.

Me: Will you really?

Nell: I have to look my best. The animation is all about me.

Me: It’s about all of us.

Nell: I’m in the title.

Me: True.

Nell: Have you shared the link to the GoFundMe page recently?

Me: No.

Nell; We have over 25,000 followers. There are literally thousands of them who haven’t donated yet.

Me: Okay. Here it is: https://gofund.me/42cc1159

Nell: Let’s hope we can raise a little more. We’re nearly halfway there.

Me: It would be wonderful.

Nell: We’re going to make this happen. You have to believe.

Me: Yes, you’re right. It’s even more important now because it means our little Poppy will be immortalised on screen.

Nell: Exactly. Did David just walk past carrying my handbag?

Me: Yes.

Nell: With Gladys inside it wearing my pearls?

Me: Yes. Sorry.
