Chopped Potato : Oh, part 1

Some news news tonight ...

We may all be evicted by Christmas...

According to Kitchen Sink Neighbour, almost all the residents in our council block have received a notification from the local authorities in the last day or so -- that they will all be rehoused by the middle of November. "Almost", as all of the owned flats in our block, all of the squatters and the many other residents on the estate, have gone without such touching news. And "rehoused", as in temporary long-term accommodation, rather than a permanent home like they have right now.

Our upbeat spirits crash straight away.

"Well, that's squatting for you", Kitchen Sink Neighbour sighs, as USgal and I stand there on the outside walkway, in the cold evening wind, astonished.
