Since Sandra has spending more and more time in her soon to be new office, Darrell and I have re-allocated certain of our tasks to Nigel, like taking the rush photocopying jobs and the mail to Tallulah’s office (which is Sandra’s new base too) !! A stroke of delegating genius on our behalf we felt!
However, over the weeks Nigel has developed a great fondness for Tallulah and she for him, and he is always begging for any jobs which might mean he can go and see her.
Nigel, it appears has bought out Tallulah’s hitherto unseen soft and nurturing nature and she has untold patience with him.
We are used to his jibber jabbering, but have to admit that at times we don’t have a clue what he is on about and sometimes have to guess what he is saying …. but Tallulah seems to understand every single thing he says and spends ages just listening to him and talking softly to him in her rich smoky voice.
She has always got a few sweeties waiting for him and has told Sandra that she looks forward immensely to Nigel popping in to see her. I even think they have a little walk planned in the school grounds before the end of term so Tallulah can show Nigel all nature that is springing up …. who would have thought it?
