A dream of confusion

Standard

coming and going, amy angry voices.

Middle ages Irishmen. Teenage girls in bottle grene uniforms. One walked into a wood. One man walked in after. Then another man walked in. Some time later the two men walked out separately. The adolescent was foudn murdered. Which man had slain her? Maybe neither. They were both convicted . I had doubts about the verdict.

The forest was dense and of pines. It was not damp or huge – a path led thereto.

I saw the one from the Urals. She was a ho. I admired her bare legs and wanted to do her. I saw her in ahouse of ill fame. I considered a relationshop with her.

I was admiring Clare’s pins at the wedding maybe thhis is why I dreamt of the Urlas best feature.

A dream of the golden horde

Standard

I dreamt the golden horde had asked me back just temporarily

of coutse soul did it without signing aontract. I was back in that seaside house – the one I lived in.

The two older boys were beaming by the round table .

I was happy to be there and see my jeep and mikayil. Myabe this reflects anxiety about my quest for a new role.

It was bright in there andthe termperature was good.

I have also been thinking of hitting back at these crims,

i was tempted to clep stuff.. In my conscious life I said to myself that I should steer clear of the place should I again alight in Araby.

Perhaps I feel some anxxiety about them. I felt no solicitude.

It was a most curious revery.

A dream of being a soldier.

Standard

I was in the British Army. Bizarrely I wanted to be there. Only yesternight I walked past a barracks and reminded myself how I would loathe each martial moment.

In the dream I was at a recruit depot. They were all younger than me and all white. They were the usual he-man ignoramuses. I disliked being there. There was a parade ground and a tall red barrack building. sOMETHING was said to sginle me iut and belittle me. I disliked it. soon I was free to go.

==================

HOW TO USE THE AGENCY

delicate questions. keep a distance from tutor

agency is a brilliant tool

someone has a bad habit. she pays a lot of attention to how people eat ===

do not give this role to a person with bad table manners

good relationship with the son. doing sport with him. good teaching

bad habits are terrible.

family values must be represented to the son ===

go to the agency to solve issues. this is a way to avoid offending the tutor.

ENDING A TUTOR

be very clear to everyone. do not hesitate.

it is not working. tell the agency first. they find a new one for you.

role model. important in single parent family.

shares more things.

keep the ”vous” ====

====================

CULTURAL MISUNDERSTANDINGS

Russia was locked for so long. age of parents. they live in homogenous society. the society was of communism built by different values. This collapsed.

copying western models. there is frustration.

the tutor has a good degree, good family education but because they have more money they are nouveaux riches.

if they pay break certain barrier. they also show lack of respect to people they invite to work for their children.

the trainers need etiquette.

it is a big mistake . people who have lots of money they think $ is the only value

some parents treat tutors like the lowest servant

======================

TERMS

be clear what you can offer.

British are most expensive. Londoners cost more from those from the north

A dream of Nepal and London

Standard

I saw Sanu and Nanu. I was said to have done something monstrous. I was deeply worried that this might be believed. In fact it was Stax against whom malicious rumours circulated.

I have not thoight of that land in years. Myabe because I am in Camulodunum and Gurkhas are at the station

Then I was in London. There were low rise dark red brick houses, 2 or 3 storeys high. Ot was Fulham. I was elated to be here.  I flew in yesterday in ral life and I have been very happy to see the pretty, familiar and individual buildings.

I saw someone I knew and spoke to him. Maybe it was Andrei whom I have been texting lately.

I awoke to remember that Sanu and Nanu thing was nonsense.
