Stockton on the famous BBC Tees is dull today, you get so used to it being sunny it comes as a shock, at least it is not raining though it may have done overnight, colder though.
G.D. Stationed at Bordon on an engineering course we got every week end off, no chance of going home as the train from London took nine hours. We had a group of Eastenders who took me home with them I got bed board and beer, they would not let me put my hand in my pocket. I was taken to the jellied eel shop, the best thing you will ever taste, I took a mouthful, the biggest mistake I ever made. Spit it out? no they will be upset, just be sick? no, in the end I ran for the toilet and it was half and half, my breakfast came up as well. When I got back they laughed it off saying it is an acquired taste. Those families had nothing yet were the jolliest people I ever met. When we got to Catterick I returned the favour, Mother had bodies on truckle beds all over the house. Lovely people all.
PS, the sun suddenly lit the room up, sneaked up on me.
