Created for Frank and Joy: a Love Story Exhibition 2023
The previous nine months had all been preparation for this day.
The overtime, the coppers saved, the clothes donated and the hand-
me-down cot repainted Council Green. That the green was the
same shade as the railings in the nearby park may or may not be
a coincidence. The spare room was reappropriated and would be
renamed once Joy’s bundle arrived.
Joy worked until her bump got in the way of the buffing wheel,
the glow of motherhood outshining even the gleaming knives she
polished to perfection.
Baby Tina came into this world on a rainy winter’s afternoon,
filling her lungs with Sheffield air and heaving a precious, life-
affirming cry. Later that night Frank left the pub with a skinful
of beer inside him, stood in the street and yelled through his tears:
“I’M A DAD!”
