On my way into work at 5.15am I saw two skinny men rolling a lorry wheel up Church Street. They were both soaking wet and panting loudly.

At the Toby Grill a man in a blue fleece jacket and jeans was rummaging through the box of Remembrance Day poppies on the bar while the barmaid pulled him a pint of bitter.

“Where are the pins? You need a pin in it” he said.
“They never came with any, I’m surprised we've got rid of so many” said the barmaid.

At Wood Grange, I lifted the flap of the letter box and half a dozen large black flies dropped out into a stream of run-off that carried them struggling away down the driveway.


A man who was fitting metal window screens to a vacant house on Eastfield Avenue asked me whether I’d like to buy some trainers.

Later, I saw a large pair of Eurimco pumps discarded on a country lane.

The woman at No.36 told me about her wealthy neighbour's recent home improvements

“It’s unbelievable, he got an interearier [sic] designer in who is a gay from Leeds so it looks amazing!”

Two young men in their twenties were talking on the bus:

"Were you on Black Ops last night?"
"No, I was going to but I had to go up to the shop to get a tin opener."
