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”

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”

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.

E23 Sidetracked

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.

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”

E17 Worlds Apart

We loaded all of our luggage into the taxi and asked the driver to take us to a hotel for the night. Like I said in the last blog mum hadn’t factored in it is the height of the busy season. We were driving with the windows wide open and I couldn’t believe how hotContinue reading “E17 Worlds Apart”

E16 We’re all going on a summer holiday

The aftermath of the burglary wasn’t too bad overall.We claimed on the insurance and they paid out quickly without any question.This in itself is worth its weight in gold because normally dealing with insurance companies is an absolute nightmare. Having said that this was 1987 and they were not as clued up regarding scams andContinue reading “E16 We’re all going on a summer holiday”
