When I visited Belfast a couple of years ago I went to have a look at the school, it was in a bit dreary looking, think its some sort of community/drop-in centre.  I found a lot of my old haunts had disappeared sad but at least the memories are good. The street I lived in is still there but redeveloped, I sat on the kerb where my house had been, seems a strange thing to do but it felt really good lol

Hello ALL,  Sorry I havn't been on lately but what with helping my son move up North to Queensland and my dau moving into a new dwelling I've been rather busy :(  >:D It's not really what I thought retirement would be LOL.  Now Liz yes I went to the Forum picks most Saturdays and of course rolled jaffy's down the aisles as well as a few stick bombs  :o Family and I are rolling along fine thanks Liz as I hope you and yours are as well.

I was last in Belfast in 2010 and stayed with my cousins in Rathcoole and I went down to Everton just for a wee look and yes I agree with you asp and Liz it does look rather shabby poor old place but I have my memories and it will allways be a soft spot in my heart for my time there.

Stay well and happy and thanks for your support in this thread,  Cheers for now, Rob  ;)
Belfast born and shall love it till my last day :)

1945 is a little early for me. I knew people from Woodvale Drive in the 60's. Had you moved then?

Hi and welcome theorrs, sorry but 1945 I was 2yrs old and didn't get about much LOL  :D my Uncle lived in Woodville Park but I really can't say I remember those 2 cottages mate. Liz I do remember that chippy but my Ma was quite a control freak so I didn't get out a lot  . maybe that's just as well as I went a tad wild as soon as we got here to Australia and my 16yr old hormones kicked in  :o .  I had a couple of girlfriends at Everton but as I am now closing in on 70 my memory don't go back that far to remember their names :( what a shame eh ?

Hey have a wonderful time in Devon and don't do anything I won't do  :-*

Cheers ALL, Rob
Belfast born and shall love it till my last day :)

Hi Liz17 good to hear from you again.  Seems we are all exiles, I live north east England. Don't get to Belfast very often, my kids and grandkids are here, so no chance of moving back.  Still keep in touch with family and friends so its not too bad.  Theres lots of things I miss though, especially chipshop pastie suppers !

She was my boss in R.V.H. she had been there 22 years left N.I. about 3 years ago and loves where she is now.
I miss a lot of things from home like mixed veg  soup mix, paris buns and yes our chippys can't be beaten.  what do others miss from home.
Take care              Liz 17  xo

Hi Liz : I've not really been to Devon, drove through Exeter but don't count that as a visit.  Been to Cornwall loads of times love it there. What a great name for a place though.    Paris buns, haven't thought of them for ages. Remember Veda bread, used to hate that when I was little. Have you always lived Kent? I've lived various places but been settled here since 76, although the company I work for is near Stansted airport so I get down there from time to time.
