I don't mind you seeing me in my nightie (under my fur coat), wearing a carbon face mask, and no teeth.

There aren't many folk I would risk inflicting that on

It will be worth every penny if it allows you to sit back and watch them do all the hard work.

Oh yes getting a firm in to do the packing is a really good move (pardon the pun). Have done it twice now, well worth it.

Hope your new home is all you expect and that you enjoy living there.

Shouldn't that be "A Hellish Granny"?

Re: A question for Clayton 'bottom enders'

I like it here

My son and his wife are making great progress with the unpacking - I expect to be fully installed by weekend.

Sitting on the balcony in the sun, having morning coffee, reminds me of holidays in Italy.

Neighbours are friendly and civilised, and their children are well behaved.

Once I recover from the vapours from gloss paint (landlady thought she was doing me a favour by 'refreshing' woodwork) I expect to resume my contented life style.

Children play on the grass in front of these flats - I enjoy watching them and we exchange smiles and 'hellos'.

I know I did the right thing in moving - just need a little recovery time - I am very exhausted.

Re: A question for Clayton 'bottom enders'

So pleased Margaret, a bit of a gamble, glad it paid off. You can get on and enjoy life now. How lovely to have a balcony in this weather. Hope the sun continues so you you can make full use of it - you arrived at just the right time!

Re: A question for Clayton 'bottom enders'

One of my Home Help ladies is a born and bred 'bottom ender'.
She has told me that the site of this 6 year old housing estate was the location of Clayton Laundry which burn down when she was aged 10 - 30 years ago.

I have been unable to find anything about Clayton Laundry on the web., and would like any personal anecdotes about it if you have them.

When Dave recently posted pics of the river nearby, I asked him about this feature I had seen on Google Maps

https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=Cla...d+Kingdom&z=19

It is logical to presume that it was a waste water outlet for the laundry, would be nice to confirm or deny that. Such primitive pollution of water courses was tolerated 30 years ago.

My mum worked in the office at Clayton laundry for a time, it was owned & run by the Joinson family - I remember the night it burnt down, we lived on Lower Barnes Street & it seemed the whole of Clayton was there watching, a horrible night

Good info -thanks.
The name Joinson rings a bell. A girl I 'palled with' in the 50s (in Ossy) had a boyfriend named Joinson who lived in a house overlooking Mercer Park - likely to be the same family.
