It's great to hear of all you 'young 'uns' getting in touch with one another. I know of many of these places you mention, but I don't seem to be finding anyone from my school years. Maybe going back to the nineteen fifties is a bit too far. Still, I am ever hopeful. Strange though. All those years ago, I often wondered if I would make 'old-bones'.

I wasn’t expecting to be in touch with school friends, it is lovely talking about those days and drawing on your memories. Time means nothing does it? I don’t think I ever thought about my ‘old bones’! Jen.

Hi Jeanette,

I didn't intend to give the impression I dwelt on the subject of aging. I didn't, but I had plenty of close calls in my youth; times when my blood ran cold, thinking this was it! So far, so good though! So my apologies if I have cast gloom and doom. I will try harder from now on! :)

Ah... They didn't have Cross Country running when I was at Beeches. If you couldn't sprint, Mr Caldicott reasoned you couldn't run and that was it. I think that was pretty general in those days, unless you joined a proper running club. I found out I could run longer distances when I finally went into the RN in1954. Had fun too, except it could 'brass monkeys'!
