Having been busy last week laying laminate flooring I missed out on the Thursday Thirteen. I did mean to post this last week following on from a few comments I’ve had about moving around a lot and living in different places.
Anyway. Thirteen Places that I’ve lived, in order with duplicates omitted.
- Limavady, Londonderry
The place where I was born.
- Akrotiri Bay, Cyprus
The place where my brother was born.
- Peterborough, Norfolk
A brief stay after the Old Man left the Army
- Liss, Hampshire
Training for the Old Man int he pub trade
- Southampton, Hampshire
Their first pub
- Aldershot, Hampshire
An OK place to live especially if you don;t mind squaddies.
- Littlemore, Oxford
A very pleasant town
- Farnham, Hampshire
I was trapped on a council estate so my opinion of Farnham is not that high.
- Reading, Berkshire
A shit hole. A violent, unpleasant, soul destroying place. Sorry Diva.
- Bordon, Hampshire
Possible the armpit of the country.
- Havant, Hampshire
I’ve had five different addresses in Havant and possibly a sixth next year.
- Cardiff, South Glamorgan
I loved Cardiff. I went to uni there and had the best time ever. I was in halls in Penarth and then rented in Roath.
- Portsmouth, Hampshire
A strange place. Very busy with wildly differing social groups depending on where you live in the city. It’s damn crowded. I lived in Copnor and Southsea and it’s like living in two different countries rather than the same city.
There you go. I don’t think I’ve missed any. Have you lived anywhere near me?
