After All The Excitement

We took turns counting out the left-over pennies, dug out from beneath fifty year old settee cushions. The ones not left-over, found the day before when our granddaughter lost an ipod between the seats, they had clattered down into the ceramic gut of a bright pink pig.

It would do well for a girl you said; before sneaking away to your workshop and painting quotes from all her favourite books across every spare speck of curve you could find.

I picked out the silver tissue paper and the plum coloured ribbon, I knew you couldn’t wrap to save your life.
