  • Wednesday. 10am. Baby Music Club. YMCA.

    I am ready to leave the house.
    Baby dressed, warm layers, cosy hat, tucked into pram.
    Baby bag packed. Food, nappies, sundries.
    Need to leave now.
    No time to look in the mirror.

    Creaking my way through the front door. Back home.
    Slight sweaty glow from the hokey cokey.
    Baby fast asleep.
    Finally look in the mirror.
    Dress on backwards.
