Re: Childhood.....

Ah yes the Futurist. I remember going to see Phsycho there with the future MrsT. Instead of walking her back home we were so scared that we rang my future father in law to come and pick us up! Not quite the knight in shining armour eh? :) ericT

Re: Childhood.....

Miss Rollingstone, good grief, she used to frighten the daylights out of me, very very strict and I once got slapped round the face by her when she thought I was not paying enough attention. Blimey Nigel, some men would pay good money for that sort of treatment today! Haydn Road was the location of...

Re: Childhood.....

Some interesting reading there. Nigel I think the cinema you referred to was the ABC Metropole on Mansfield road. Close by was the Firs maternity hospital where I was born. The Saturday morning or afternoon cinema for me was the Forum on Aspley Lane. The films were usual preceded by having to sing ‘...

Wordsworth In Lockdown

I wandered lonely as a cloud, Two metres from the madding crowd, When all at once my name was called To enter the Waitrose hallowed hall. This was the pensioner’s special hour I’d gone to get a bag of flour, But I forgot -when through the door - What I had gone to Waitrose for. The Waitrose staff a...
