To escape the stress, Ann began to spend time off the property. When she wasn’t at Miriam House she felt a weight had dropped from her shoulders.
She had never experienced the kind of stress she did working at Miriam House. It was as if her flat was in the cross hairs of some bomber.
Ann South decided that she deserved time off. She had begun working on Oct 1 and it was now December 19. She had tried to do ‘her job’ and been ignored and insulted by the tenants. Her phone calls to Elvis March went to voice mail.
She had reached the point where she felt like screaming. Instead, she called her family, packed her case, and three days before Christmas left Miriam House to spend a week away.
