It’s the First of November

Nell: What are you doing downstairs at this time of the morning?

Me: I’ve got my Wednesday Writers workshop later so I need to be up and doing.

Nell: Ouch. Stop that. Leave me alone.

Me: Pinch, punch. First of the month. White rabbits, no return.

Nell: What’s the matter with you? Why mention rabbits?

Me: It’s 1st November and I’m warding off evil spirits.

Nell: I worry about you sometimes. I really do.

Me: It’s something you do at the beginning of the month.

Nell: I know something else you need to do.

Me: What?

Nell: Share the link to your page so people can buy you a cup of Earl Grey and support your writing.

Me: Must I?

Nell: Yes. You post a story every day. It’s only like a subscription.

Me: I know. I just wish I didn’t need to ask.

Nell: The donations make a huge difference.

Me: Yes, they really do. We will use the money to buy coal for the fire and food for you dogs.

Nell: Go on then.

Me: It’s https://www.buymeacoffee.com/saramartin and thank you so much in advance.

Nell: Good.

Me: Kev and I are looking at a couple of houses later, by the way.

Nell: Why?

Me: Because we have to move, Nell.

Nell: I should come with you.

Me: I’m afraid you can’t.

Nell: I don’t like you going without me.

Me: It has to be done. We can’t put it off any longer.

Nell: This isn’t going to be easy, is it?

Me: No, but we have no choice.

Nell: We’ll make it a home wherever we go.

Me: Yes, we will.

Nell: As long as we have each other all will be well.

Me: It will.

Nell: You can do this. We’re by your side.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
