Extract

Wednesday 4 February. The ensuing spurts completely drowned the thin little breast-pads and soaked through my shirt. Bending double, I rushed puce-faced to the loo, clutching my jacket around me. In the safety of its marble confines, my worst fears were confirmed. There were two huge spreading stains which couldn't be casually explained away. 'I tripped and spilt two cups of coffee down myself- simultaneously'? 'I had a nasty accident with an exploding tap'?
