Me: It’s a Canadian sort of day today.
Nell: What are you talking about?
Me: Shannon shared a lovely photo of Marvin in the park near their apartment in Toronto.
Nell: He’s looking well. Dear boy.
Me: Bless him. Seeing Marvin so happy and safe is my pocketful of happiness. He had such a hard start in life.
Nell: Thank goodness Chris and Shannon rescued him.
Nell: So, is that why today is Canadian?
Me: Also Shel is arriving later. He’s Canadian too.
Nell: I know he is. Did you see people have been donating to the fundraiser for the animation again?
Me: Of course and we’ve actually managed to reach the halfway mark which is wonderful.
Nell: I was right to ask you to post the link again, wasn’t I?
Me: You were.
Nell: There are always going to be people who haven’t seen it, or got around to donating yet.
Me: A lot of them said they were donating to honour Poppy which made me cry.
Nell: In a good way I hope?
Me: Absolutely. I can’t wait to see her on screen.
Nell: Now, I’ve had a word with David and Gladys about yesterday.
Nell: I’ve told Gladys that she is not to wear my pearls again.
Me: Quite right too.
Nell: So she’s opted for a small bow in her hair.
Me: Which is quite restrained for Gladys.
Nell: And David has accepted that my handbag is not a vehicle for carrying around small fluffy dogs.
Me: We’ll see.
Nell: I know we all want to look our best for Shel.
Me: We do.
Nell: So, where’s your hat?
Me: I don’t need one. It isn’t cold enough.
Nell: Not the all encasing hat. A smart one. Chop chop.
Me: Right. Sorry.
