E28 A trip to Scotland and a surprise exit

We were set to get a new teacher but before that, the class went home for the Easter break half term. If I remember rightly we got 2 weeks of vacation time and I had received a call from dad.He wanted to take me up to Scotland for a family holiday and to get outContinue reading “E28 A trip to Scotland and a surprise exit”

E27 Mr Hughes, Ex boyfriends and a very merry Christmas

The school year continued the rest of the pupils and I were all high on life due to our 2 victories.If you remember from last week we had secured a classroom and we had also got rid of Miss Jacob. I’ve no idea what happened to her but she has to be dead by nowContinue reading “E27 Mr Hughes, Ex boyfriends and a very merry Christmas”

E26 Second year of Juniors

The summer holidays were over and it was time to go back to school and start the second year of juniors.All was well in my world but I never realised how bad this year is going to get for many reasons. The many reasons were failings from the education system and even back then withoutContinue reading “E26 Second year of Juniors”

E25 A new Family

In all honesty, now is the best time to talk about Sandy and her family as they do not feature much later on.If I introduce them later on then there’s a chance it will wreck the continuity of the writing. I know Sandy won’t like this post if she reads it but still, I don’tContinue reading “E25 A new Family”

E24 Self destructive behaviour

Before I start to tell this week’s story I need to thank all of you reading this.This blog has been running weekly now for six months.

Every week thereContinue reading “E24 Self destructive behaviour”

The problem with writing when there is so much going on is that it’s easy to get sidetracked.When I write I do not want there to be any misconceptions so that’s why I try to go into as much detail as possible while at the same time keeping the reader engaged. It’s not as easyContinue reading “E23 Sidetracked”

E22 Friends You Will Never Forget

In the last blog, I spoke of the children of Winwood and my relationships with them.Out of them all, I was closest to a pair of brothers called Ezra and Teddy.Their mum and dad were called Trish and Clem. I don’t know exactly the history here but if I remember rightly mum knew Tricia fromContinue reading “E22 Friends You Will Never Forget”

E21 Planting roots

I must make a correction from the last blog. It was my 7th birthday party and not my 8th. Everything else in the story is accurate but when you start to remember and take notes for future blogs they don’t all come out in the right order.Carol has been extremely useful with the timeline soContinue reading “E21 Planting roots”

E20 A new home

We pulled into our new street in Woolton village and began to unload Johns van.Mums friends Abdullah and his brother Ibraham had also come to lend a hand. I probably should have introduced these earlier in the story but with so much that has happened so far, I will occasionally miss things and have toContinue reading “E20 A new home”

E19 On the road again

We had been back from the holiday for a couple of months and life overall was really good.We had a nice stable home and mum was managing to support us both. I had made new friends in ST Michael’s school and the area we lived in was a huge improvement from where we had comeContinue reading “E19 On the road again”
