Here we go, day one of “In For A Penny” (thanks to the lovely Ellie Jones for help with the name). For an explanation of the project, click here.

She’s constantly worrying – patting at her waistline, turning this way and that in front of the mirror.

He remembers the days when she never stopped baking: sleeves rolled up to her elbows, dress smudged with flour. These days the cake tin is full of granola bars.

She’s stopped complaining out loud because she knows he can’t change her mind, but he still catches the forlorn look on her face when they’re out with other couples.

He thinks that it’s okay to be a little soft around the edges; he’s grateful for that little bit more of her in his arms.
