Stays Up Past Midnight Raking The Drive

by Jo Horsman

Oh, for Christ’s sake – just leave her to it – she’ll get bored. Tired – hopefully!

Marilyn spends all bloody day doing unnecessary things before moving into the night.

Yes, raking the driveway. No, it didn’t have gravel before. That came yesterday.

You’re welcome to try. She’s armed with that thing.
