Fieldnotes: an update on Artemis and Karen

pack through the night, in different time zones, against the clock.
Artemis sits on her suitcase to make it shut.
Karen reads her Trinny and Susanna bit in what Not to Wear for the 14th time and consults the packing section.
Both of their partners have gone to bed.
Their flights leave at 6 am the following day.
They have checked and re-checked their passports.
They are both Desperate Women.
They might look a bit like THIS if sketched.
But it is dark so there are no pictures.

Brilliant- that first sentence is just brilliant. Kate you are well to the good as a writer. I would give up the day job!
