Leaving together, tea round and sleep.

1. In the grey light we leave the house together -- Nick is late and I am early.

2. Hot drinks from the machine have gone up by 5p. Teapots appear like desk mushrooms and the fridge is full of milk bottles.

3. Sleeping and waking twine in the first part of the night, and so do our fingers.

  3. I do so love a bit of romance. May your fingers to continue to entwine. Reminds me of Angel Clare in Tess of teh Durbervilles, where they wash their hands and can't work out whose fingers are whose.

  4. I love that image of teapots as 'desk mushrooms' - great vision Clare!
