    Nice, mate... Shame about the garden now, though!!

    You get some right lazy fuckers, with an aversion to using a trowel, lawnmower, or getting their hands dirty

    We had a lovely garden too, as both of my parents (particularly my dad) loved flowers and also growing their own produce, especially herbs, such as thyme and rosemary, which are both essential in Italian cooking. We grew tomatoes in our greenhouse too, for the pasta sauce!

    Ha - love it! Ah, the days when proper discipline was allowed in schools.... My homework was usually covered in something I'd spilled on it (Coke or whatever), after the bus had gone round a corner

    used to get belted rotten up to 2nd year when a few of us bigger guys told the teachers to stick it where sun didnt shine. there was a bit of a ti'do about it but the teachers were basically cowards and didnt fancy a doin' .. also i was winning a lot of trophies for the school at time and when i went to see him i explained that for me to try harder and actually go to classes and gym etc i would obviously have to reduce my swimming...That had the desired result and teachers were warned to "not expect me"

    Nice... I've only been once to Aberdeen. Outside of holidays, I spent most of my time in the south side of Glasgow, or at secondary school in Paisley. I went to primary school in Queens Park, in Glasgow, and lived in the house I showed you from 1965 to 1989, just before I met Del, after which we got our own place, before moving down to Wales in 2000.

    Yeah, Rouken Glen was (still is) just lovely... Pretty big in size and very 'leafy' and unspoiled, with beautiful trees and woodland walks, which went on for miles, and a wonderful selection of wildlife. Plus, there was also a boat pond and golf course, and you could go on horse and cart rides round the park, nice cycling paths and all sorts. Great place for a kid to play in the summer months

    Nice one. I got up to all sorts of shit too, and was always pretty big (tall and muscular) for my age, so when it got to about 4th year, I didn't take any shit either. We used to laugh when one of the weedy wee teachers we had gave us the belt, as it didn't hurt much, which made him go ballistic...

    The more he tried to belt us harder (at some point even jumping up in the air, to get more force behind it, and yes, it was comical to watch) and using the thick tip of the belt over our knuckles, the more we just laughed, to the point of him becoming so angry he almost had a seizure

    remember me and another guy flinging the gym teacher in the pool fully clothed. he wasnt amused but at same time scared to do anything. think he ran to rector who apparently laughed at him, and told him to stop being a jerk with folk bigger than him

    was a good rector that guy. well was with me. was only interested in gaining awards and a quiet life.
