I did not say anything before Grace because I thought what on earth is she doing hanging around on street corners. Now you have told us I do feel relieved. It is a nice picture of you, who was the lady and the posing young lad in the then photo.

HI Jim Davis the boy in question is my brother JOE that was taken in 1940 when we were evacuated as i said the lady and her husband were older than our parents.Joe and i said we wanted to stay together so they were the only couple who would have a girl and boy.i was glad to get home after about 9 months.

Hello, Grace is my wonderful nan whom I always call 'nanny' despite me being 30 years old!
I am so proud of her irrepressible energy 'even at her age' haha nanny!
She has embraced modern technology and is spending time researching her family tree...I think she knows more about computers and mobile phones than I do!

Hi Lynsey and Beryi It it nice to see you both coming to the site please come back again now you have found us. Lynsey I do realize most of us are old enough to be your grandparents, but by all means not all us. So we would welcome any comments or tales of yourself and family that you could tell us. You are a cuckooite even if you were not born there. That was where some of your roots came from.

Well not wishing to be left out, Grace is my mum and Lynsey Wood is my eldest daughter. Grace's sister, Beryl, is my favourite auntie who used to get me into so much trouble! So there are now 3 generations of Cuckooites viewing this site. I have very fond memories of visiting my nan and grandad in Upfield Road and the huge Sunday teas where the whole family would sit round the table. Chaos reigned and Grace's other sister, Margaret, who only liked tinned raspberries for dessert, would often find them being chosen by everyone else leaving her with none! Her cries of 'you rotten lot' were heard often amongst all the laughter.

Great memories Jackui,we are so lucky to be able to remember those days gone by.I am not sure if family's where ever stronger or more together,I do not see that as much today,like going to Nan's for tea on a Sunday and the whole family would show up.We lived on Cuckoo Avenue one street over from your Grand parents and we had the best Xmas party's where the whole family would show up for dinner and Boxing day.No one seemed to care where they slept as long as every one was together.Great memories from the past.

Grace said...

I did,nt know my Jacqui was getting in on the act hope she dont tell to many tales i remember those times and i am very glad we still all keep in touch , will have to watch what i say as it may end up on the web site.
