Welcome to London Battersea

Hi Shelia Hi BB

have you tried to post its very difficult to post not sure if it goes on shelia &BB the author of Battersea girl lives not far from here hes written many books Battersea girl was part fiction but i can read it over again so much of old Battersea life in that book. Eastenders was dramatic were'nt the fire brigade slow in arriving only in soapland do they do this it wouldn't get my vote for good storyline corrie and emmerdale i like to see take the prize.all those people in that pub yet none of them smelt smoke no smoke alarms going off and none of them could try to use mobiles bit badly thought out that dramatic scene did you watch it i like it but wish it wasan't all about the queen vic lot. good story line in corrie whose baby are you .

Hi Sheila and Anj

How right that summer is nearly over but usually we have a nice late September before the darkness starts.

I am no longer on the BB site, it was said about me "a Battersea girl she aint" finally I was accused of being a Quisling and then I was removed from the site. That said I really could not care less and did not join a site to be treated like that.

As for holidays, we were due to go down to Devon in June and Yorkshire in August but ill health meant they were cancelled. Looking to go up to Yorkshire end of Oct if possible. How about you?

Regards

BB

hi shelia and BB

we have had some good postings on hopping in kent jims favourite subject, chopper comes on now and then of cause its freedom of speech on our site messages always go on don't know why you can't join us. i am reading a book called casper the communting cat its a true story of how he boarded a bus everydayand travelled for 10 miles then would at buses return opposite his home jump off and return to his owners house must admit really an enjoyable read for a older child or cat lovers. we can put recipes on there. I have found two of the girls who were at my school lbut sadly they had died but its only through site i found relatives of them be surprised how many of us try to help anyone searching for long lost friends relatives, not had holiday was widowed in 208 . i still like the soaps eastenders keep doing story lines on phil mitchell bit too much story lines for him all the time, i don't like his story line heard and seen it all before it corries and emmerdale i

Hi Anj & BB

All OK with us, can't believe that the summer is now at an end and winter to look forward to. I haven't tried to post on here recently as so often it is a waste of time. Are you both still listing on the BB site. I notice someone mentioned "Chopper" from the BB site, think this is probably Skipper's cousin that he used to talk about.

I notice that someone mentioned pasting a posting, this sounds a good idea, if only i knew what it meant. Hope you are both well. Have either of you been on holiday this year.

I wander if bebex is trying to post be nice if you came back to the bb cos the men out number us ladies and us ladies could do with some girly talk though there are ladies they really don't post but its been a huge success gets so much more then that other one...

Fri Aug 13

- Hi Anj

Thats a funny little posting...........who are you waiting for..............and where are you waiting. I haven't been on this site lately as there never seems to be much doing. Probably because people get fed up trying to get postings on. I've had my family visiting from the north recently and they went home this morning. Much as I love them am looking forward to some peace and quiet. Football season starts tomorrow - Chelsea are playing, and as my other half is a season ticket holder, he is looking forward to the first match.

Hello Battersea People.....

Fri Jul 30

Hi BB

Do you still go on old B S i tried for a long time to get into there and got no response is it being takenover by new residents who have moved to the area and post different aspects of how their suroundings are don't expect the newbies really knew of old Battesea when it was full of houses affected by war and age what i see of some places there are just apartments and tower blocks the Battersea we knew lost it common touch now i don't know it anymore surprising in news and newspapers its either wandsworth or clapham i wander whats wrong with them calling it Battersea they discribe clapham junction as being in clapham well to us who lived there it was in Battersea many of the original residents who are Battersea people it can be annoying to call it clapham

Fri Jul 30

- Hi BB - hope this goes on

Just a quick note as am off to dentist. The caravan park is still there opposite the lavender field. As far as I know the cafe in Oaks Park is still there, but haven't been there for a while. Bit cooler today, has been very humid though - am glad as I am taking my granddaughters out today. Whereabouts are you living now...........

Hi BB lavender fields

It is quite nice round banstead way new watrose opened up in high street they had a fire in 208 store was burned it is a very green aera and nice places around there i used to walk up the brighton rd to offices to pay our rates i never realised how far it was and me being new to that part of the area then, here weather is fine might be just light passing showers but fresher we've been in muggy cloudy days since sunday having to put lights on in early eve is bit strange in sumertime i disliked the high temps and humid weather we were in for about a fortnght not lover of high summer but like autum and spring temps and pretty colours of those seasons its so difficult to get posts on and that spoils it for people communicating from a distance i wish these people would realise that

Wed Jul 28

why are'nt msg going on why have a site for posting msg on if they are not going on no wander there aren't new mesgs going on

Wed Jul 28

Hi Anj and Sheila,

Apologies for addressing this post to both of you and not replying individually but you never know what goes on and what does not.

Many thanks for the information on the Lavender Fields. I was interested because I used to live along Woodmansterne Lane and could not recall it. At first I thought it must have been near the Oaks Park because I remember they had a small shop there as well as the Cafe (which I remember only too well from my days when we turned the Cafe into a Polling Station for the day. Very pleasant it was too and getting paid as well).

I seem to recall a sort of Caravan site on the corner opposite the Lavender Fields.

Weather not too good up here today overcast and rainy.

What is it like your way?

Regards

BB

HI BB i think it might be carshalton rd but must say it might be going down bolters lane we had drove out to boxhill and stopped on downes then drove around came across it purely by chance son said he had seen it before but it is lovely smell all kinds of lavender people were walking amongst the paths they made through each line of lavender mustn't pick it but little shop selling cards with lavender in them you can buy bunchies the wasps were enjoing the perfume its amazing people walking amongst it they never had the wasps hanging around them i think we'll go again it certainley helps you sleep and relax may beif you use gogle you might find it if i questioned you being BB i am sorry but we get a couple of jokers coming on here useing others names that we know of

Tue Jul 27

I'm not ignoring you, a lot of my postings don't go on.

Feeling a bit better - did I say that they think it is neuralgia. Dentist made it worse, wish i hadn't gone.

Tue Jul 27

- Hi BB

Nice to see you on here. I tried to leave a message for Anj to say that you did know the site was up and running (well sort of), but my posting didn't go on. I will check the road of the lavender field for you. Think it is at the junction of Croydon Lane and Woodmansterne Lane. I will check on the map later and let you know if thats wrong.

Hi Battersea..

I had my lunch in the park today in York rd and it was lovely, a bit overcast but very warm,

its a pity i couldnt pop in the "Nags" for one but those days are gone....

Mon Jul 26

Hi Anj

I did write you a long message yesterday which didn't go on. I do wish they would sort themselves out.

Mon Jul 26

- Hi Anj

Toothache which they say is neuralgia is much better, but still a bit of a dull ache. Have taken so many tablets, probably rattle when I walk. BB does know about this site as she put a message on the OB Site for me to say that it was back. She is very good on the history of Battersea. Sounds as if she's another one thats left BB site, can't be many left now, unless they have had an influx of newbies. Very sad about old Skipper, he wasn't on the site much at the end, I did miss his posts, also the music he used to send. Did anyone from the site go to his funeral. Must dash, am being called that the dinner is ready!!!!
