Sobbing child, clinging on to your leg, who didn’t want to start school?
Sense of guilt that sobbing child hadn’t been able to meet her new
teacher when all the other kids had, because you couldn’t get the time off work

Usual sense of guilt at being a single parent, assuaged by adding an
extra chocolate biscuit to lunch bag? Check. Sigh.
Additional guilt at attempting to overcome first guilt with bribery and
food. *Deep breath*. Yeah, got that one covered.
Overwhelming urge to turn to drink even though it’s not yet 9am? Check
