Title: Cold and Homeless

Winter is definitely upon us. The temperature has plummeted into the minuses. Town is full of Christmas shoppers all slowly losing the feelings in their fingers and toes, while trying to manoeuvre through the crowds.

I am looking forward to getting home. In fact, that's all I can think about. I imagine walking through my door and feeling the wave of central heating wash over me. Clicking on the kettle and getting cosy as I start to thaw out.

There was a man in a shop doorway, sat with his dog. Homeless. What will he do? Where will he go? I start to wonder what it must be like- not to have a home to go to. What does he have to look forward to? How will he manage to keep warm this winter?

I had so many questions, I decided to go and talk to him.
