Arriving home around 6pm. Wearily unpack the bike outside the front door in bright sunshine. Fold up the kids’ buggy in the hallway to free up space. Wheel in the bike, squeeze it against the wall under hanging coats. Twist back to shut the door.
From inside the living room, small loud voices hail you with non-sequiturs. Daddy…didi put Mr Tumble in the cereal!
Full of good cheer and tears
