It’s been a good night in
Husband is away, so I’ve had some great nights in at home. I have been surrounded by:
- Hand, foot, cuticle and nail potions
- All the remote controls and phones in the house (some now with very supple heels and strong nails…)
- Endless singing and talent TV shows
- A selection of remaining Easter chocolate and party bag sweets
- All the cushions.
I’m not really alone as the kids are asleep upstairs.
I love going to tuck the kids in before I go to bed. I re-arrange their duvets over disordered limbs and dense breathing. They smell clean.
They’re still and complete and quietly humming with life. Like small people-shaped batteries, furiously recharging themselves on dreams of zombies, rainbow flowers, vanilla fudge and high-speed trains.
Or maybe that’s what I’ll be dreaming of, after a little too much chocolate and cuticle conditioner.
