Glad to hear you are one of us Malena. I am Wolverhampton born and bred so I do know the lingo and I do talk proper. Moved to the frozen North when I was just a babby. Lived right on the river Tees It was that cold we used to put all the. coats on the bed Moved back when I was 12. I do not live in Wolverhampton now but my relatives do.
I'm from Leicester, born in Wharf Street and when I was a lad our house was so cold we had condensation on the outside...

We could not see out of our windows for the ice on the inside.
I love reminiscing of the good old days and the things we had then that they don't have now.... Rickets, diptheria, rationing and neighbours that spoke English...

Oh but we were happy, despite dodging death. You could leave door open all day. Anytime now one of us is sure to say " every morning I licked road clean" Neighbours that spoke English! I have a hard time remembering that Malena. I must ask my Mother

"I must ask my Mother", Ouch, that barbed remark really hurt...

The good old days......

Post  Not Born Yesterday on Thu 23 Aug - 9:43

It was indeed very unusual in the far off days of my childhood to hear anyone speaking anything but English but my mother was at loggerheads with most of the neighbours so I didn't get much chance to speak to them!

I don't think that situation was unique - a falling out would happen over something very trivial like a child throwing a ball into someone's garden and the adults never (and I mean literally never) spoke to each other again.

Another thread hijacked. Why doesn't anybody use the chatbox to talk to each other?
