Which is very regular at the moment with so many more games being shown during the last year you will find me on my iPad having a surf! I love looking on eBay at old postcards at the moment. I found some of a neighbouring village where a couple of friends live and sent them screen shots by email. One friend passed on to a neighbour who has bought one postcard as it had her house in it. She’s framing it and giving it to her husband for Valentines Day! I think I should claim a commission! It is a lovely photo. I will see if I can attach it.
What a lovely gift and it's so nice looking at places you know before they were ruined by the trappings of modern day living, no sky dishes, telephone/electric poles, cars lining the streets..Huge bloody wheelie bins! Huge tin signs on metal poles and so may people everywhere. Progress isn't always positive.
Watched a film on Netflix other night called "The Dig" it's about Sutton Hoo in Suffolk, took my kids there many times when they were little to see the Anglo Saxon burial mounds. Because it wasn't far away. The film was so lovely, a beautiful story starring Ralph Finnes set in 1939 and the streets and building in the film looked like your postcard LL
There is a lot to be said for being part of a group, and the support and friendship that is gained from this.

Oh I’ve missed the film! I bet football was on that night but I expect I can find it. I looked on eBay at old postcards again and found one of the church we got married at so have bought that. Hope he likes it!
I have joined the Facebook page from the village I grew up in. There’s photos from my past and people talking about the youth clubs and church hall discos I used to go to.
I joined it to keep an eye on what was going on in the area for my dad. I was looking for things like lunch clubs that my dad could have gone to. The first picture that came up was one that had been in the local paper of a new (at the time) primary school on the day it opened with just two classrooms and two teachers one of whom was my mum. This was so freaky because it was just a few days after she’d died. A lot of people remembered her.

I follow some village groups too Magggzzz. Some historical some for local news. Today there’s a post about a blue transit van that has been seen in our village several times, parked in an odd place so everyone will now be on lookout! Magggzzz did you grow up in a village near Preston? I went to school with a 4 girls from Preston, a couple came from Broughton, one from Penwortham and another from Bamber Bridge.
