A Canadian Sort of Day

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.

Me: Yes.

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.

Me: Good.

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.
