Lets go back to Neal on his way to visit his very pregnant
Back to 2nd February
The journey to Giselle's goes without incident
Neal knocks on the door and can't believe his eyes when Giselle opens the door..... talk about cliché!
"WOW! Harry's got his work cut out with you!!!! Bare foot and pregnant!!! You look gorgeous sis, how are you feeling?" Neal gives his sister a hug.
Giselle laughs as Neal pats her bump
" I feel like a giant blimp!!!" she tells him.
Neal comes inside and drops his bag in the hall looking around
" Not quite finished with the decorating then?"he asks "I thought it was all systems go before you hatch?"
Giselle hits him playfully on the arm " Yes, that was before Harry got more involved!
He's just sacked the guys that were working on the place... said they were not working fast enough! So now he buggers off to France and we have no one to finish the house!!!" *sigh*
Neal follows Giselle into the living room
"So have you heard from Harry yet?"
Giselle winces " Yes! about twenty times!!! The guy is driving me NUTS!!! You would think I was the only person to ever have a baby!"
Neal smiles but Giselle can see the flicker of sadness that shows fleetingly on his face.
"Harry's, a lucky guy" Neal says after a pause.
"I'm sorry, this must be hard for you! How's Sarah?" Trying to sound like she cares (she liked Sarah at first but after she walked out on Neal and he was so devastated....)
"Not very well actually! Her sister Kandy is staying with her for a couple of days, I think she's got a bit of a tummy bug! I phoned her on the way over in the taxi she says she's feeling a lot better but? ....."
Neal shrugs his shoulders
"I hope she's OK?" now Giselle feels bad
After closing her lap top Giselle rolls out of her seat "where's my manners? Would you like a drink or anything?"
"A cup of tea would be nice" Neal looks towards the lap top "So what you been up to sis? Looking for yet more baby stuff?"
"No, actually! I was looking for builders...and what do you mean 'more baby stuff'??Has Harry been talking?"
" As my good friend Kumi is want to say I'll squish his beanbags when I see him!" Giselle giggles.
Neal laughs uncomfortably and feels the need to cross his legs " and how is that nutty chick and poor Simon? Still together?"
Giselle smiles "well funny you should ask......"
Neal follows Giselle into the kitchen and helps her with the tea.
Then they return to the living room and settle down for a looooong chat about there old friends, respective partners, Giselle's baby and a ton of other things......
