A Good Day

Me: Yesterday was a good day, wasn’t it?

Nell: It was, indeed.

Me: My sister Charlotte came for lunch and Herr Hoffmann made us leek and potato soup with crunchy fresh rolls and lots of butter.

Nell: Soup is the perfect lunch on a cold day.

Me: Yes, and we ordered the Christmas turkey.

Nell: Poppy says it’s too small, by the way.

Me: How does Poppy know what size turkey we ordered?

Nell: Poppy’s a Guardian now. She knows everything.

Me: I’m not sure that’s a good thing.

Nell: Quite.

Me: Later Kev and I looked at another house which was all wrong.

Nell: Completely wrong. Awful dark place.

Me: I’m not even going to ask how you know that.

Nell: Best not.

Me: On the way back Kev and I stopped at our favourite farm shop and bought homemade cake and some other treats.

Nell: Just essentials.

Me: And then we all went down to the beach.

Nell: Which was an invigorating experience to say the least.

Me: Yes, the wind was rather bracing. I’m going to need a thicker coat next time. I wish Dave hadn’t eaten my all encasing hat.

Nell: Harriet ran straight into the sea.

Me: How she can swim in this cold weather is beyond me. It must have been freezing.

Nell: Yes, David paddled a little but I kept to the sand.

Me: The waves were magnificent though, weren’t they?

Nell: They were certainly wild.

Me: I love the feel of the salty wind. It makes my face tingle.

Nell: If you say so.

Me: And then we drove home and had tea and cake in front of the fire.

Nell: And we all fell asleep.

Me: Our new home must have a fire.

Nell: It will. Don’t worry.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
