The day started badly, by waking up late,

but she knew where she ought to be

as her mind tried to make her decisions

by not facing the truth, the reality


She dressed in a hurry, uncaring

haphazardly throwing on a few clothes

remembering to spray her deodorant

and her perfume, from her head to her toes


She sneezed as she walked through the spray mist,

she always used more than she should,

but somehow the perfume gave courage

like wearing armour, if only she could


She raced through the house, hardly stopping

to put on her shoes by the door

grabbing her coat, her keys, she cast a long look

round her home, then took one look more.


As she closed the front door behind her,

she keyed the reluctant lock into place,

she turned, took a deep breath whilst thinking,.

“Right, holiday over, back to work, smile in place!!! “
