Tara switched on her computer and took a bite of the toast Mum had brought her.
Remembering the printer was empty, she wiped her hands carefully, took paper from the pack and filled it.

Tony winced and hid the toilet roll under his pillow.
He couldn’t make notes without it. There was no other paper in the flat.
