So sorry about the loss of your son. When we bring children in to the world the last thing we want, or expect, is for them to predecease us.
I moved out of London in 1969, having lived in a prefab just off the Old Kent Road
A tad surprising there are so few old reminiscers on this site, I'd hate to think we're hogging it.
SE1 is a trendy place to be these days. All the old SE1-ers, (SE17 in my case, but only marginally,) of a certain age, who were fortunate enough to be able to buy our own houses forty or so years ago, burnt our bridges. We couldn't get away quick enough, but now we can't afford to move back.
I only discovered this site by accident. There must be hundreds like me out there who've not been so lucky.
I guess that explains it.
As for Jan and I and our ramblings, I know I'm still up for it and I hope you are too, Jan.
