201. The hypnotic whirl

The hypnotic whirl of the washing machine has her transfixed.

“Blue,” she yells, pointing to the spinning T-shirt inside, followed by “Red!”

She is as happy as 3-year-old gets.

But tomorrow the novelty will have worn off.

She’ll notice the TV has gone.

And her favourite toys.

And her blankie.

A single mother can be creative sometimes.

But you cannot keep all the misery out.
