back up to the BBC tomorrow – what a bore ( not ) – i find it quite exciting esp as Grandma used to love Jo Good

Thank you for more lovely comments .

I was thinking ,out of everyone I know ,Janet ,I have know you the longest .We have been friends since we were 5years old in those heady days of Kensington Avenue Primary School. You must remember singing ‘To be a Pilchard’ and country dancing to ‘The Dashing White Sergeant’ .
Just before John and I were nearly stampeded by 300 cattle ,I was going through my repertoire of Kensington Avenues’ songs and I could ( proudly) remember every word to ‘The fiddler’s ready let us all begin, so step it out and step it in ‘ …… “Casey Jones’ and an all time inappropriate classic ‘They sailed the ship Titanic’ which had the rousing chorus
‘it was sad,it was sad, it was sad, mighty sad , it was sad ,when that great ship went down .Husbands and wives, little children lost their was sad when that great ship went down ” ….such a happy little ditty ?!

Feeling a bit nervous as Mandy and I have been invited to speak live on Jo Good’s Radio London show ,tomorrow , between 4.10 and 4.30 pm.
It’s live this time so Mandy has made us a sign each ‘Do not interrupt’!

  1. Aah… Kensington Avenue! Fond memories. I too can still do all of ‘Fiddlers ready’ and To be a Pilchard. Do you remember the one about the mermaid “… we there did espy a fair pretty maid with a comb and a glass in her hand, her hand, her hand, with a comb and a glass in her hand. And the raging seas did roar, and the stormy winds did blow. And we jolly sailor boys were up up aloft and the land lubbers lying down below….”
    There was also a very cheery one about The Streets of Toledo, where a young cowboy was ‘wrapped in white linen as cold as the clay”… Another in the long list of cheerful ditties!
    Do you still have those very fetching blouses we made in the Annexe when we were in 3A? And I still have the book (signed by Mr. Lawson) that was awarded to me for keeping a tidy tent in Dieppe!
    Happy days!!
