Tomorrow I'm going to Venice - I hope you don't expect me to write sense today.
Between now and tomorrow morning I must sort the laundry, buy some milk, cut the grass, clean the cooker, water the plants, sew on a button, write a letter, buy a birthday card, order two toy wheelbarrows, order a supermarket shop, talk intelligently at a literature festival as if I had nothing else on my mind,
pause, breathe, remind myself that this will be worth it,
(nearly forgot lunch),
clean out the fridge, change the sheets on the bed, phone the bank (god help me), charge the phone, charge the camera, charge the kindle, return a book I borrowed to the woman next door, water the plants,
For tomorrow I'm going to Venice!
