I find it surprisingly easy to be with and move amongst an incredibly diverse range of people. This wasn’t always the case. There was a time when I would feel excruciatingly awkward and out of my depth with strangers. But the nature of my job here in London, which requires me to sally forth into schools and liaise with such a wide range of professional agencies, not to mention working with children who are at times severely disaffected, even damaged, has forced me to confront and come to terms with my innate shyness in ways I once couldn’t have imagined.

I like to wander around the model rooms they set up at IKEA. Their furniture is a little bit too minimalist for my taste, and kind of self-consciously mod, but they know how to use a tiny space. Plus, although the TV’s and DVD players are fake, the books are real - and printed in Swedish. I don’t know if they’re translations of James Joyce or Doctor Phil, but they look fascinating.
I like to picture Sweden just outside these “apartments”. I like to think that, just beyond the op-art curtains, snow melts against the warmth of the windows.
