First memory was turning up for the first day in shorts! Anyway, a few dinnertime memories- Those old portacabins with their vicious heaters, Tilly tapping on the window with a sixpenny bit if she saw you trying to lean against the wall to keep warm in winter- and how long those dinner hours seemed back then! Sam, Graham and me used to go to the Bridgeway cafe every dinner to play cards, sometimes nipping into Selectadisc to see what gems we could find in the second-hand sections. Then there was the cafe by the embankment that we found on one of our many dinnertime trips to the Victoria Gardens, Digby Butterworth getting a right bollocking from a driver on Trent Bridge for throwing a snowball at his car, and of course- the little paper shop next to Boots where we used to get ice cream. You cant do anywhere near as much in an hour nowadays!

'Johnny' Hodnett, Sternest Headmaster in the universe, (Darth Vader would have stood no chance!), Miss Leake (the first naturally occurring antidote to Viagra), Mrs Littlejohns in her 2" thick tweed twinsets and the permanent cloud of chalk dust that seemed to accompany her everywhere, Mr Jacobs, apparently terminally depressed teacher of English, John Chandler as Gary Glitter winning EVERY bloody Pop mime that he entered, Flowing waters, the caretakers alsation (white, I think), 'Chalky' White; RE Teacher, Rickie Sandford, looking far too much like a young elvis than could have been good for him, Lynsey Talbot and her short skirts, phwooar! Andy Berridge, I think of money there for some reason, Melvin Nethercott, a blonde guy who always seemed eager, not for anything in particular, just generally eager,'Wack' Walker; PE teacher and vicious sadist, Mrs Savage, french teacher, Mr Gardiner, also a french teacher, but a very dapper man; I used to suspect that on his days off he stood in Burton's window, Mme Antanouris, yet another french teacher, what a lot of cunning linguists this school had! Rosie Scragg, Damn! she was scary, Oliver Wedderburn, little skinny guy absolutely FULL of energy, Wayne Lespeare Olly's mate a chubby, scowling black guy; Wayne invented Mr T before Mr T invented himself! Classrooms that were freezing in winter and as hot as hell in summer, Phil Dixon, Maths teacher extraordinary, he showed me how to understand algebra, Anthony 'Jewby' Smith & his buddy Phil Gunn who, at the time, were camper than Xmas, Steve Davis and his truly amazing ability to fart on demand, Jackie Thomson, phwooar! Mr Abbott, art teacher and all round nice guy, Kay Foster (I think), prefect and nice enough to lend me a fur coat for my one and only appearance as a womble (well, public appearance at any rate) thanks Kay, Joe Hallam, music teacher, he really didn't deserve 3g, all this was 28 years, approx 10 stones and a full head of hair ago and still the nightmares won't stop... Mundella School forever, may it successful be... the council weren't singing from that song sheet when they knocked it down were they? Bhupinder Singh, used to live near Canning Circus, nice guy as I remember, Neil (Rupert) Stocks, prefect, total bastard, Ah, memories. Does anyone else remember any of this? Or is it just my mind playing tricks on me. Dearie, Dearie me...
