1st April 2014
My first day back in the office after the very best four months of my life – maternity leave. Here is the scene: its 7:53AM, I am at the kitchen bench madly pumping breastmilk so that Erroll has enough to feed our boy for the day while I am at work.
I absolutely must look sharp today, so have decided on scarlet for a nail colour, and the very forgiving, suitable dress is a jersey wraparound number newly purchased from design house ‘Review’ bought in Australia only last week. Hair is freshly coloured and cut (short; a kind of mumsie ‘do) and legs are shaved. Heels will be nude. Make up is applied. Now, to feed the infant before we all get out of the house and my two lads walk me to work.
