Me: Harriet seems on edge this morning.
Nell: How was the house viewing yesterday?
Me: It’s a definite potential.
Nell: Nice views of Kingsbridge town?
Me: How would you know that?
Nell: Just guessing.
Nell: Views are important to you.
Me: When Kev and I arrived at the house there was a seagull on the roof.
Nell: It’s Kingsbridge. There are seagulls everywhere.
Me: It looked remarkably like Miss Penny Lane.
Nell: They all look the same to me.
Me: She ducked down when she saw us.
Nell: Beefies are sly.
Me: She wasn’t a Beefy.
Nell: They’re recruiting females now, you know.
Me: Another odd thing happened when we were in the garden.
Nell: A Beefy attack?
Me: No. A helicopter flew over.
Nell: That’s not odd. They fly over all the time. We’re by the sea. It’ll be the RNLI rescuing someone, I expect.
Me: It wasn’t the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
Nell: How do you know?
Me: It was being flown by a chocolate Labrador.
Nell: How on earth could you have seen that?
Me: I knew it.
Nell: It’ll be the Royal National Labrador Institution then.
Me: It was Harriet.
Nell: Don’t be silly. Harriet was here all the time.
Me: I thought you were going to say Harriet can’t fly helicopters.
Nell: No. She can fly helicopters. Poppy taught her and she got her licence recently.
Me: Why didn’t you tell me?
Nell: You’d only have worried.
Me: So, what were they doing there?
Me: Harriet, Miss Penny Lane and Henry and Horst.
Nell: How did you know Henry and Horst were there too?
Me: They’re not going to miss out on a surveillance mission, are they?
Nell: Okay, you’re right. We wanted to see the house.
Me: I win. Sorry.
