Some things I take for granted
The empirically-minded among you will have already noticed that my experiences this week pale in comparison with the challenges faced by a real Living Ghost. There is no way that you can compare the situation of someone forced to rely on friends and charity with that of someone who can revert to his privileged existence at will.
And it has also become clear to me just how much I have already used and taken for granted in these few days, that a Living Ghost is unlikely to possess. I have already worn three completely different sets of clothes this week for a start. I have my own towels, toothbrush and toothpaste, toilet rolls, soap, shampoo, shower gel, deodorant and razor blades. None of which have come out of my £10 budget because I have a stockpile at home.
