Poem by Hollie mcnish
I loved this poem. I got so much I imagery in my head of a tired mum and the delirium that can go with it.

Saw this book and thought yup this is my kind of thing. Don‘t know why I‘m reading so many books I will just dip in and out of at the moment though. Means I do t focus on one and take forever to finish anything

WomanistBibliophile I‘ve been similarly reading several books at once and making slow progress with each... 7mo
Weaponxgirl @WomanistBibliophile I have to keep reminding myself it doesn‘t matter how many books I read or how quickly as long as I‘m getting something out of it. 7mo
