366 unusual things: days 304 – 308

30th Oct – I’ve watched every 7 Up episode since I was 7, and today I watched the latest, 56 Up.  Michael Apted didn’t plan it this way in the beginning, but thanks to his perseverance, every 7 years I catch up with people I’ve known since I was a child.

31st Oct – There’s a Halloween party for 20 children under way next door.  This is unusual where I live.

1st Nov – Tutoring a student in a college library, we were asked to leave for recess.  The library closed for 15 minutes.  Who made up that rule?

2nd Nov – A tutoring agency asked me to fill in my details on a page entitled “Teachers Backend”.

3rd Nov – In the last two years my neighbour in the Housing flats has had two babies.  The father has taken them away to another town.  She accepts it;  she has no money to get them back or even to go and see them.  Her life is so different from mine.

  1. Hard to know when to offer help and when to keep my nose out of it. On my side of the street there are ‘homes’; on the other side is ‘Housing’. Each side has opinions about the other side. It took me months to cross the street just for a chat, but it was worth it. Meanwhile, all the other neighbours from this side give the Housing tenants a wide berth, and when I try to encourage them to go over there, they say ‘Nuh’. All animals are not equal.
