"I'm so glad to just have one subject left to do, and then I can start my life, imagine all the shopping time I'll have".
"I don't have any responsibilities but sometimes I think maybe there is more to life than sleeping and beer... Then I crack another cold one".
"There was the most gorgeous pencil skirt in shades of grey, I just had to have it. I know, but I can wear it to work and when I go out too".
The grass isn't necessarily greener, but it does inspire a sense of longing for times past. Before my owly growly voice was used this often and I could sleep in and go to a cafe. Without saying things like 'no, stop that, one, two ....'. Sigh.
But then I look at the gorgeous faces that call me mummy, and shopping, sleep, and pencil skirts do lose their sheen.
