Going out for Lunch with Michele, Yvonne and Pearl

5월의 첫 화요일. 두 명 스태프의 부재로 Michele, Sam 그리고 나 셋이서 일을 시작했다. 매우 조용했지만 매우 재빠르게 움직여야 했던 아침. Judy, Pearl, Yvonne의 순서를 차례로 샤워와 아침식사 준비를 마치고 10시가 넘어 느지막하게 Michele과 나는 테이블에 앉았다, Porridge와 Weetabix로 아침식사를 하며,,, Michele왈, 오늘은 특별한 활동이 예정된 게 없으나 날씨가 좋으니 Pearl과 Yvonne을 데리고 점심식사를 하고 […]

Sunday 8 April 부활절 아침이 밝았다. 몇 주 전부터 Easter, Easter 라며 초콜렛 가게와 마트에서는 Easter Egg 판매에 바빴고, 카드 가게에서도 Easter Card 섹션이 따로 만들어져 판매되었으며, 일주일 전부터 모든 학교와 아카데미는 Easter Holiday에 접어들었다. 꼭 종교를 가지고 있지 않더라도 대부분의 가정에서는 부활절을 축하하며 거창한 저녁식사와 멋진 디저트로 가족들과 함께 시간을 보낸다고 한다. 그리고 서로에게 […]

Go to the cinema with Yvonne

Thursday 5 April 항상 다른 스태프와 함께 외출을 하다가 어제 처음으로 혼자서 Yvonne과 함께 영화를 보러 갔다. 내가 영화를 즐겨보는 걸 아는 스태프 Mary는 일주일 전 다이어리에 Yvonne하고 시네마에 갈 수 있겠냐고 내 의사를 물어 놓았다. 이제 어느정도 tenants들과의 외출에 익숙해진 나는 Of couse, thank you. 라는 답변을 달아놓았고, 스태프들로부터 독립(?)을 하여 혼자서 이동을 시도한 […]
