To write one hundred hopeful words every day for one hundred days


They moved in across the road

But they never cut the grass

Never opened the curtains in daylight

She put the bins out in her pyjamas

With her hair like a bird’s nest. Imagine.

His car was gone all day, sometimes all night

That poor baby. She didn’t even open the door to the Health visitor

Then she walked out into the street holding the wee bundle out to nobody

Please someone take him, he won’t stop crying.

It was late, but a lady walking a Labrador took the baby, and her hand, and led her back inside.
