Probably the second one
I grew up in the Stourbridge area and went to school there, hubby's parents were born there and left not long after they got married only for hubby to return with work. The circular thing was getting a bit too scary when our eldest had a girlfriend in Kingswinford whilst we lived in Belgium so we just had to move on to break the cycle .
Must say though I do occassionaly have moments where I miss the shopping but they are getting fewer and further between.

I went to school at the Thorns which had regular fights with the kids from the Grange from what I can remember . I went back there to do some teaching practice whilst I did my degree and it was pretty scary :scared: . We were at Merry Hell when I visited the UK in June as I went to visit my grandparents in Wolverhampton and just accidentally ended up at the shops . From what I remember roadworks where the local speciality of Dudley council I am sure that they thought that they were a tourist attraction.
I must say that the last visit was enough to remind me of why I am over here. Where are you planning to head to when you go to Aus?

Hi moneypen

I haven't heard Pauly mentioned for a while either and I "listen" everyday

Well, it's on in the background as I wake up, but I am sure my ears would have pricked up if he had been mentioned.

Have you checked the bbc radio 2 website to see if he is mentioned on there?
