Say Good Morning to the Stars – Sophie Wellstood

My mother wasn’t always drunk, but that’s like saying it doesn’t always rain in a rainforest, or it’s not always snowing in Alaska. More often than not, we’d get home from school or from playing out, and find something had changed somewhere about the house – a new animal sleeping or pacing around in the sitting room, or a half-painted chair in the garden; perhaps a new lodger moved into one of the bedrooms or a pan of pig food boiled dry, the kitchen full of greasy smoke and whatever animal or animals were in there, whining and snorting and freaking out.

 

If you’ve enjoyed this snippet and would like to read the rest of the story, why not purchase a copy of the book? The Stories for Homes anthology, containing 63 stories and poems by both award-winning and yet-to-be-published authors became a bestseller AND all royalties go to the charity Shelter.
