A year in people #40 – Vic Makins

We were about 15. Vic and I were in different sets for our GCSE subjects so we decided to write messages to each other in a [pink] notebook and pass it to each other in between classes (because of course this was in the days before mobile phones). The messages were random teenage chit chat,... Continue Reading →

A year in people #38 – a guy in a car

My flight was a little delayed and it was after midnight when I found myself doing the 20 minute walk from the airport to my car which I'd left at work. A car drove past, indicated and pulled in a short distance ahead. Should my instinct to be worried? It wasn't, but I was definitely... Continue Reading →

Probably not going to stay platonic. But he was adamant he hadn't expected this. Insistent he hadn't come over with any... Continue Reading →

Jonny Marine: Part 5

Continued from Part Four... We ditched the deep talk with the pie leftovers and kept to safe topics like Brexit and what our friends were up to now for the rest of the journey. That night was the first one sleeping in my van. Now, I've slept in there with many of my friends and... Continue Reading →

Jonny Marine: Part 4

Continued from Part Three… Out of the blue, I got a message from someone in January 2018 asking if they'd just seen me driving around Lincolnshire. Given I was halfway up a mountain in New Zealand at the time, the answer was most definitely no. I didn't recognise the number or the picture and wondered who... Continue Reading →
