Shopping List

Eggs
Milk 4 pints
Bread white toastie
Coffee
Tea
Cheese
Hairdye
Moisturising cream
Biscuits
The size waist I had before the children
Wine
Oh god probably too much of that
The guy who works in the butchers to look at me again
And he’s wearing the t shirt so I can see his arms
My youth
Toothpaste
Some way to ensure that the top gets put back on after use.
All the hours spent providing emotional labour
The way my feet used to look
Chocolate
More wine
Time
