1 (Tape 004601)

Joy (PS0GM) [1] Press that down to make it sto stay.
[2] Right, do you want your story then?
[3] Yes?
[4] ... Hmm?
[5] Hmm The Spider Affair, alright?
[6] [cough] ... Knock it off.
[7] [laugh] [reading] The first lesson that aft [] leave it alone and just forget about it hmm?
[8] [reading] The first lesson that afternoon was mental arithmetic.
[9] The girls groaned over this, except the quick ones like Irene who delighted in it, but it meant that there was no need for anyone to open the desk because it was all oral work.
[10] Miss Potts was lenient with the girls for it was a very hot afternoon.
[11] Daryl was glad that Miss Potts was not as exacting as usual for arithmetic was not her strong point especially mental arithmetic.
[12] The next lesson to be taken my mam was to be taken by Mademoiselle Dupont.
[13] It was to be a French conversation lesson in which the girls would endeavour to answer all Mademoiselle's simple questions in French.
[14] Miss Potts left and Mademoiselle arrived, not quite so beaming as usual because of the heat.
[15] She was too [...] to enjoy the hot weather and little beads of perspiration shone on her forehead as she sat down at the big desk opposite the row of girls.
[16] Sit down, she said and the girls sat down thankfully feeling that the only lesson they really enjoy that weather would be swimming lesson.
[17] The lesson proceeded slowly and hauntingly, the flow of French conversation was not at all brisk on the girls' part and the constant pauses began to irritate Mademoiselle.
[18] Ah!
[19] She cried at last.
[20] It's too hot to make conversation with such stupid ones as you are this afternoon.
[21] Get out your grammar books and I will explain a few things to you that will help your conversation if you can get them into your so stupid heads.
[22] [cough] The girls opened their desks to get out their grammar books.
[23] Gwendoline watched eagerly to see what would happen when Mary-Lou opened hers but nothing did happen.
[24] Mary-Lou had neither seen the spider nor disturbed it, she shut her desk.
[25] All the girls opened their grammar books at the page Mademoiselle commanded then Mary-Lou found she had her English grammar instead of her French one so she reopened her desk to get the right book.
[26] What are you doing Mary-Lou?
[27] Demanded Mademoiselle who hated desks being opened and shut too often.
[28] What are you doing? ... mm [] ?
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [29] I got the wrong book out [laugh]
Joy (PS0GM) [30] Probably.
[31] [reading] Mary-Lou stuffed her English grammar into the back of her desk and pulled out a French one.
[32] The spider feeling itself dislodged by the book ran out in a fright.
[33] It ran almost up to Mary-Lou before she saw it, she let the desk lid with a terrific bang and gave a heart rendering scream.
[34] Everyone jumped in alarm, Mademoiselle leapt to her feet sending a pile of books clattering from her desk to the floor she glared at Mary-Lou
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [moan]
Joy (PS0GM) [35] [...] what is this noise, Mary-Lou have you gone mad?
[36] Mary-Lou couldn't speak, the sight of the enormous spider apparently running straight at her had completely undone her.
[37] She scraped her chair away from her desk and stared at it as if she expected the spider to jump through the lid.
[38] Mary-Lou!
[39] Thundered Mademoiselle, tell me what is the matter with you, I demand it?
[40] Oh, Mademoiselle there's a, there's a simply enormous giant spider in my desk [] ... leave it alone, you'll just knock it off [reading] stammered Mary-Lou quite pale.
[41] A spider!
[42] Said Mademoiselle, and you make this fuss and call out so loudly that we all jump in fear.
[43] Mary-Lou be ashamed of yourself.
[44] I am angry with you, sit down.
[45] Oh, I, I daren't,M said Mary-Lou trembling, he might come out Mademoiselle, it's enormous.
[46] Mademoiselle wasn't quite sure whether she really believed in this spider or not.
[47] What with Elissia's deafness last week and one thing and another.
[48] Irene giggled, Mademoiselle fixed her with a glare.
[49] We will see whether this spider exists or not ... she said firmly and I warn you Mary-Lou if this is a again a trick and there is no spider you will go to Miss Potts for punishment I wash my hands of you.
[50] She advanced to the desk she threw open the lid dramatically Mary-Lou drew in her breath and got away as far as she could looking at the inside of her desk with scared eyes [] ... [cough]
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [scream]
Joy (PS0GM) [51] Honey you've moved it too far away haven't you?
[52] [sigh] I can see this is going to be a problem [sigh] hmm?
[53] ... I can't remember where I've got to now.
[54] [reading] There is no spider to be seen it had of course retreated to the darkest corner it could find again.
[55] Mademoiselle swept the desk with a searching glance and then turned on poor Mary-Lou.
[56] Bad girl!
[57] She said and stamped her foot.
[58] You so quiet and good, you too deceive me.
[59] The poor Mademoiselle I will not have it.
[60] Mademoiselle do believe me, begged Mary-Lou in despair, for she could not bear to be scolded like that.
[61] It was there an enormous one.
[62] Mademoiselle rummaged violently among the books in the desk.
[63] No spider not one, she said.
[64] Tell me where has it gone, if it is still in there?
[65] The spider was alarmed by the violent rummaging, it suddenly hurried out from its hiding place and ran onto Mademoiselle's hand and up her arm.
[66] Mademoiselle stared at the enormous thing as if she really could not believe her eyes, she gave a shriek even louder than Mary-Lou had given.
[67] She was too scared she wa too was scared of spiders and there was a giant specimen running over her person.
[68] Irene exploded.
[69] That was a signal for the class to enter into the fun and one and all scrambled over to Mademoiselle.
[70] Ah, where is it the monster?
[71] Girls, girls can you see it?
[72] Wailed Mademoiselle.
[73] It's here, said wicked Elissia, with her light finger down Mademoiselle's spine ... She gave a scream thinking that it was the spider running there.
[74] Take it off I beg you Elissia, remove it from me.
[75] I think it must have gone down your neck Mademoiselle, said Betty, which nearly made Mademoiselle have a fit.
[76] She immediately felt sure that it was all over her and began to shiver and tremble.
[77] Elissia tickled the back of her neck and she leapt in the air.
[78] Oh, la la, la la, what a miserable woman I am!
[79] Where is this monster girls, girls tell me where it is gone?
[80] There was now a complete uproar in the first form room, Miss Potts again in the second form ... room was amazingly exasperated.
[81] What could her form be doing now, had Mademoiselle left them alone, had they all gone mad?
[82] Go on with your maps for a minute she said to the second form who were glancing at one another in astonishment as they heard the noise from the first form room.
[83] She left the room and went rapidly to the door of the first form.
[84] She opened it, the noise hit her like something solid, worse than breaks she thought grimly.
[85] First she could not see any mistress there at all and thought the girls were alone and then she caught sight of Mademoiselle's head in the middle of a crowd of girls, what was happening?
[86] Girls!
[87] She said.
[88] But her voice went unheard.
[89] Girls!
[90] Irene suddenly saw her and started to nudge everyone.
[91] Look out, here's Potty she hissed.
[92] The girls flowed back
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [93] Potty
Joy (PS0GM) [94] from Mademoiselle as if they were water.
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [95] Ah ha.
Joy (PS0GM) [96] In a trice everyone was by her desk.
[97] Mademoiselle stood alone trembling wondering what was happening.
[98] Where had the monster of a spider gone?
[99] Mademoiselle, really, said Miss Potts, almost forgetting the rule the staff had of never finding fault with one another before the girls.
[100] I simply cannot think what has happened to this class you've ta when you've [...] .
[101] Mademoiselle blinked at Miss Potts.
[102] It was a spider!
[103] She explained, looking up and down herself.
[104] Ah, Miss Potts, but a monster of a spider, it ran up my arm and disappeared.
[105] Ah!
[106] Seem to feel it everywhere.
[107] A spider won't hurt you, said Miss Potts coldly and unfeelingly.
[108] Would you like to go and recover yourself Mademoiselle
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [cough]
Joy (PS0GM) [109] and let me deal with the first form?
[110] [cough] Ah no, said Mademoiselle indignantly, the class it is good, the girls they came to help me to get this monster of a spider [] .
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [111] Who's she?
Joy (PS0GM) [112] Gwendoline, I think, look it's on her ... leg.
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [113] Hmm ... yes.
Joy (PS0GM) [114] [reading] So big it was Miss Potts.
[115] Miss Potts looked so disbelieving, Mademoiselle exaggerated the size of the spider and held out her hands to show Miss Potts it was at least as big as a fair sized frog.
[116] The girls had enjoyed everything immensely.
[117] What a French lesson!
[118] Gwendoline had enjoyed it too, especially as she was the cause of it, though nobody knew that of course.
[119] She sat demurely in her desk watching the two mistresses closely.
[120] And then suddenly she felt something running up her leg she looked down it was the spider, it had left Mademoiselle a long time ago and had secreted itself under a desk afraid of all the trampling feet around.
[121] Now, when peace seemed restored the spider wanted to seek a better hiding place.
[122] It ran over Gwendoline's shoe, up her stocking and above her knee.
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [moan]
Joy (PS0GM) [123] She gave a piercing scream [laugh]
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [sigh]
Joy (PS0GM) [124] everyone jumped again.
[125] Miss Potts turned fiercely.
[126] Gwendoline go out of the room, how dare you squeal like that.
[127] No, don't tell me you've seen the spider, I'm tired of the spider, I'm ashamed of you all.
[128] Gwendoline shook herself violently not daring to scream again but
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [129] filled with the utmost horror at the thought of the spider creeping over her.
[130] It was the spider, she began, it ... Gwendoline what did I tell you, I will not hear another word of the wretched spider, said Miss Potts raising her voice angrily.
[131] Go out of the room!
[132] The whole class can go to bed one hour earlier tonight as punishment for this shameful behaviour.
[133] And you Gwendoline can go two hours earlier.
[134] Weeping, Gwendoline ran from the room.
[135] As soon as she got outside she examined herself carefully and trembling to see if she ... see if the spider was still anywhere about her.
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [136] Yes.
Joy (PS0GM) [137] To her enormous relief she suddenly saw it running down the passage, she leant against the wall, how tiresome of that spider to come to her when it might have gone to anyone else.
[138] Now she'd got to have a double punishment, still she would soon put it about that Elissia and Daryl had planted the spider in Mary- Lou's desk.
[139] How sickening of Miss Potts to pounce on her like that.
[140] She couldn't help it if the spider came to her.
[141] But perhaps, after all it was a good thing that Miss Potts had come into the room and heard it all.
[142] Perhaps Gwendoline might even drop a hint to Miss Potts about Elissia and Daryl putting the spider in the desk.
[143] Miss Potts came out of the room at this moment, she eyed Gwendoline with dislike.
[144] Miss Potts the spider ran away down there, said Gwendoline pointing anxiously to ... anxious to get back into Miss Potts' good books.
[145] Miss Potts took not the slightest notice but swept into the second form classroom and the door shut.
[146] Gwendoline felt very small.
[147] Now what was she to do?
[148] Stay out here or go back into the classroom, she didn't want to be found out there if by any chance Miss Graining the Head came by.
[149] She decided to risk going back, she opened the door and sidled in.
[150] Ha!
[151] You are back again, and who told you to come?
[152] Demanded Mademoiselle now ashamed of her part in the affair and ready to vent her humiliated feelings on anyone she could.
[153] You screamed and made Miss Potts white and angry [] .
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [154] [...] who did that?
Joy (PS0GM) [155] [laugh] Amy I think.
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [156] Is that how you spell it?
Joy (PS0GM) [157] No, it's
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [158] No
Joy (PS0GM) [159] got two Ts.
[160] ... [reading] Well Mademoiselle you screamed, too protested Gwendoline in an injured tone, louder than I did, I should think.
[161] Mademoiselle rose to her in her seat and for all her smallness she seemed enormous to Gwendoline just then, her beady eyes ...
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [162] Who did?
Joy (PS0GM) [163] flashed [] .
[164] Mademoiselle.
[165] [reading] You would be rude to me, Mademoiselle Dupont, you would argue with me []
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [cough]
Joy (PS0GM) [166] Oh dear.
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [cough]
Joy (PS0GM) [167] A good ... trio aren't we?
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [168] Mademoiselle Dupont.
Joy (PS0GM) [169] [reading] You would argue with me who have taught here for twenty years you, you, Gwendoline turned and fled.
[170] She would rather stand outside the door all day long than face Mademoiselle when she looked like that [] .
[171] Alright, I think we'd better give up and have some breakfast.
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [172] Oh, but I only had one.
Joy (PS0GM) [173] I know but it's late this morning.
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [174] Oh!
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [175] Mind the yogurt!
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [176] That's not fair.
Joy (PS0GM) [laugh] ...
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [177] It's half past ten.
[178] Half past ten ... [...]
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [179] Oh!
[180] I only had two!
Joy (PS0GM) [181] I know

Connie (PS0GN) [3820] Yeah.
Joy (PS0GM) [3821] Yeah I'm sure you'd packed up last time I saw you.
[3822] That's why I didn't erm notice.
[3823] I packed up ... I packed up for two and a half years ... and then erm ... when we went to Spain in August, no in October, the four girls went ... me and me two sisters and a friend from work, Barbara.
[3824] We went to Spain and erm the smell of the fags, it absolutely poured with rain for four days and nights.
[3825] And I mean in Spain it rains.
Connie (PS0GN) [3826] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [3827] And erm we were l we were stuck in the villa, right up in the mountains ... er, could do nothing but play cards all day and ... scrabble and erm ... all these stupid board games.
[3828] But erm ... and I just felt oh ... fancy all this way just to come and sit and play cards.
[3829] But ... we had a good time.
[3830] It were nice just to relax and ... I started smoking again and I packed up last Sunday.
[3831] I thought that's it.
[3832] I can't afford to keep chucking two quid down the drain.
[3833] And I knew they'd go up again on ... on Wednesday.
Joy (PS0GM) [3834] The budget mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [3835] So I thought that's it, I'm gonna pack up.
[3836] So we're watching that programme, Is this Your Last Cigarette? or whatever it were called last Sunday on the telly and I thought ... I'm stupid cos in six month's time I shall say I could have packed up six months ago.
[3837] So I thought well if you're gonna do it in six months
Connie (PS0GN) [3838] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [3839] do it now.
[3840] So I
Connie (PS0GN) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [3841] I just packed up and ... never thought any more about it.
[3842] Couple of occasions I've felt ... haven't I?
[3843] I've said I could do with a fag
Joy (PS0GM) [3844] Yeah.
Joy (PS0GM) [3845] but I won't, I won't relent.
[3846] I'm I'm too, I'm quite stern that way.
[3847] I was just stupid but I was as I say, since Oct erm ... when was it?
[3848] Since September ... I've had hell and high water with my sister.
[3849] It's been dreadful ... to say the least.
Joy (PS0GM) [3850] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [3851] And erm ... well she's gone down from what?
[3852] ... Twelve and a half stone?
[3853] She must be eight and a half.
Joy (PS0GM) [3854] Ah! ...
Joy (PS0GM) [3855] Christmas ... no ... new year's eve ... we went to a party.
[3856] It were my ... other sister's ... daughter's eighteenth and she'd booked up a party ... at the club.
[3857] So erm ... we went over.
[3858] Ten to twelve my sister said I'm going home.
[3859] She said I couldn't see the new year in.
[3860] She said it's too painful.
[3861] So I said alright then
Rudy (PS0GT) [3862] Is that still switched on?
Joy (PS0GM) [3863] Yeah.
Rudy (PS0GT) [3864] Switch it off.
Joy (PS0GM) [3865] Yeah [...] .
[3866] And then erm and then er ... when we went out, mum was in bed with fl pneumonia, well near pneumonia.
[3867] Wen er Wendy had gone.
[3868] Mum had got Benjy so I thought ... we'll pop up, see mum, get the dog.
[3869] And as we come out I said to Rudy I feel we ought to go up and see if Wendy's alright, cos she was a bit upset at quarter to twelve.
[3870] So he said alright then.
[3871] And we drove round and she's got a bungalow and all ... she's got these curtains that all cross over and when you sit outside it don't look as if there's any lights on.
[3872] But luckily enough I got up and walked round the back and I could just see ... the lights on in the living room downstairs.
[3873] And erm ... I called out to her through the letter box ... and she come.
[3874] And she said I'm on the phone, will you talk to that person on the phone.
[3875] I said who are you on the phone to?
[3876] She said the Samaritans.
[3877] She said I just wanted to commit suicide.
[3878] She said I don't want to live any more Joy.
[3879] So of course that was it.
[3880] I said right come on, you're coming home with me.
[3881] That's ... end of subject.
[3882] She said I can't I've just had a sleeping tablet.
[3883] And she said erm ... I don't, I don't ... I don't want to she said.
[3884] And we sat about an hour didn't we?
[3885] It must have been nearly an hour.
[3886] And I says come on, let's go up my house.
[3887] I said I, I'll make the bed up when we get home.
[3888] Anyway in the end I just said that's it.
[3889] I've had enough.
[3890] Switched the fire off.
[3891] Grabbed hold of her.
[3892] Grabbed her handbag.
[3893] Marched her out of the house in her dressing gown and ... these great big slippers, you know, these with a funny face on.
[3894] Then we sat here till what, gone four?
[3895] Didn't we?
[3896] Talking.
Joy (PS0GM) [3897] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [3898] Then she got strong again.
[3899] She gets these ... pangs where she can't cope when she's on her own.
[3900] But then when I'd strengthened her up I said ... she'd be alright for a few days.
[3901] And then she phoned me up.
[3902] Said I can't cope again.
[3903] I'm down, down the pan.
[3904] And that's how it's swung.
[3905] Roundabouts and swings all the while.
Joy (PS0GM) [3906] You wouldn't have thought he'd have walked out would you?
Connie (PS0GN) [3907] No.
Joy (PS0GM) [3908] Cos they seemed, seemed so happy.
Joy (PS0GM) [3909] Well ... [...] .
[3910] So erm ... as I say she's er
Rudy (PS0GT) [3911] [...] and take you all up there?
Joy (PS0GM) [3912] Yes if you'd just slip us up, will you?
[3913] I must go and get a tissue.
[3914] ... [...] handkerchief round here.
[3915] ... I don't iron but at least it's done.
Joy (PS0GM) [3916] Enjoy yourself.

16 (Tape 024107)

Joy (PS0GM) [4012] And then ... do away with chimney breast ... altogether.
Joy (PS0GM) [4013] You're gonna have what out?
Joy (PS0GM) [4014] You know cupboard in me room?
[4015] You know that underneath the stairs?
Joy (PS0GM) [4016] Oh yeah.
Joy (PS0GM) [4017] That leads into me room.
[4018] Well if I had that out ... the chimney breast out, my room'd be ten times bigger.
Joy (PS0GM) [4019] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4020] So we decided that
Joy (PS0GM) [4021] George is off again.
Joy (PS0GM) [4022] we're gonna do that up.
[4023] But I've got to have a maxi boiler first. ...
Joy (PS0GM) [4024] A maxi boiler?
Joy (PS0GM) [4025] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4026] What's that for?
Connie (PS0GN) [4027] Combination [...] .
Joy (PS0GM) [4028] Oh a combination but ... well I don't know do I?
[4029] Come on?
Joy (PS0GM) [4030] A combination boiler.
[4031] What for your ... water and hot
Connie (PS0GN) [4032] Yeah.
Joy (PS0GM) [4033] Have you got radiators then?
Connie (PS0GN) [4034] Yeah.
Joy (PS0GM) [4035] Oh we've got radiators.
[4036] Central heating but it's a back boiler.
Connie (PS0GN) [4037] Gas fired isn't it?
[4038] Back boiler [...] .
Joy (PS0GM) [4039] Oh I see.
[4040] So you want a balanced flue like ... this one of mine?
[4041] Yeah.
Joy (PS0GM) [4042] Cos our back boiler's about had it.
Joy (PS0GM) [4043] Did you shut him out?
Joy (PS0GM) [4044] Shut him in.
Connie (PS0GN) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [4045] I shut him in.
Joy (PS0GM) [4046] Oh.
[4047] ... Come on then darling.
[4048] [...] ... So erm ... you see that's, that's why when we had ... this we paid somebody to put this in cos the gas company wouldn't put my ... my boiler right out the back.
[4049] He said oh no, you've got to have it here in your kitchen.
[4050] I said I don't want it in me kitchen, bloody great horrible thing like that.
Joy (PS0GM) [4051] No.
Joy (PS0GM) [4052] So erm ... so we decided ... I wish we'd have had erm ... I wish sometimes we'd have had that radiator on that wall.
Rudy (PS0GT) [4053] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4054] Cos it don't half limit you to having a radiator that length.
Rudy (PS0GT) [4055] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4056] Yeah.
[4057] ... That
Joy (PS0GM) [4058] And there's nowhere else I can put me furniture.
[4059] Cos if you put ... the suite, the settee over there it's gonna absorb all the heat into the settee.
Joy (PS0GM) [4060] That's right.
[4061] You're the same with, you're the same as us cos that's where my radiator is, underneath the window.
[4062] And all it
Rudy (PS0GT) [4063] That's where they normally put them.
Connie (PS0GN) [4064] That's where they normally are.
Joy (PS0GM) [4065] That's right.
[4066] But you see I, I'd have preferred it on back wall.
Joy (PS0GM) [4067] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4068] But there again, having it on back wall where stairs is, it's still gonna make ... you're gonna still be putting things in front of it.
[4069] ... In er in my room.
[4070] So where else is there to put it?
[4071] Really.
Joy (PS0GM) [4072] I mean that's the only thing in here ... you can't put ... I mean I could do away with me birds and have another single chair standing there, but it shortens your room
Joy (PS0GM) [4073] That's right.
Joy (PS0GM) [4074] all the time.
Joy (PS0GM) [4075] You see that's what's happened with mine.
[4076] My suite's far too big for that room.
[4077] Far too big.
Joy (PS0GM) [4078] Well this one is a wee bit I think.
[4079] ... So
Joy (PS0GM) [4080] I wouldn't say so.
[4081] I wouldn't say so. ...
Joy (PS0GM) [4082] It's just that I sometimes think oh I'd love to have a change round but
Joy (PS0GM) [4083] But y yeah you can't cos
Joy (PS0GM) [4084] You're limited cos that wall is wasted really isn't it?
Joy (PS0GM) [4085] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4086] And this wall's wasted cos of this.
[4087] I mean you can't put that settee here because it ... it blocks that door.
Rudy (PS0GT) [4088] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4089] So that's the only place it can
Joy (PS0GM) [4090] Yeah.
Joy (PS0GM) [4091] really fit.
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [4092] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4093] Mm so ... I wanna try and get it decorated this, this year. [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [4094] Yeah.
Joy (PS0GM) [4095] It's getting ever so yellow.
[4096] Mind you, we all used to smoke.
Joy (PS0GM) [4097] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4098] The girls come.
[4099] Surprising how dirty things get when you smoke isn't it?
Connie (PS0GN) [4100] Oh it is yeah. [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4101] Oh aye.
[4102] What are you going to do Joy.
[4103] Are you taking wallpaper off?
Joy (PS0GM) [4104] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4105] You're gonna take it off?
Joy (PS0GM) [4106] Oh yeah.
[4107] I'd like to halve it like, like erm ... erm ... I've done me bathroom.
[4108] I'd like ... a nice plain one at the top and a patternedy one at the bottom with a nice thick border about as wide as that all the way like on the dado.
Joy (PS0GM) [4109] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4110] So erm ... and then it really wants, it's it's up here where it's so
Joy (PS0GM) [4111] Yeah.
Joy (PS0GM) [4112] getting dark.
[4113] But this takes quite a few rolls of paper.
Rudy (PS0GT) [4114] Yeah. ...
Joy (PS0GM) [4115] What did we say, fourteen?
Rudy (PS0GT) [4116] I don't know.
[4117] It's quite a few. ...
Joy (PS0GM) [4118] You're talking about sixty, seventy pound.
Joy (PS0GM) [4119] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4120] To do it at the cheapest.
Joy (PS0GM) [4121] Oh yeah.
Connie (PS0GN) [4122] Yeah. ...
Joy (PS0GM) [4123] You used to buy Viv two rolls of wallpaper a week didn't you?
[4124] Keep her quiet.
Connie (PS0GN) [...]

Rudy (PS0GT) [4177] Yeah.
Joy (PS0GM) [4178] Oh my giddy aunt.
Rudy (PS0GT) [4179] I went to fetch it in the van.
Joy (PS0GM) [4180] And the mattress is like new.
Rudy (PS0GT) [4181] In that little van.
Connie (PS0GN) [4182] Mm.

[4187] [...] four drawers.
Joy (PS0GM) [4188] You see it's it's high whereas ... I mean I bought a high bed, but even my bed's not as high as that.
[4189] Have you seen that one up there?
Connie (PS0GN) [4190] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4191] Why do you like a high bed?
[4192] Just the getting on and off of it?
Connie (PS0GN) [4193] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4194] Yeah it's easier for me to get in and out of bed of.
Joy (PS0GM) [4195] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4196] Higher it i well the lower it is
Joy (PS0GM) [4197] Well you can see how new it is cos the cupboards have never had nothing in them I don't think cos they're just, there's not a mark in them.
Joy (PS0GM) [4198] The lower the bed is, the harder it is for me to get out.
Joy (PS0GM) [4199] Yeah.
Joy (PS0GM) [4200] He has to pull me out.
[4201] Drag me out.
[4202] Whereas ... if it's at high level I can get me legs out.
Joy (PS0GM) [4203] Er yeah.
Joy (PS0GM) [4204] Let them dangle on to floor.
[4205] And then
Joy (PS0GM) [4206] Let the circulation go.
Joy (PS0GM) [4207] I'm I'm ... I'm like that you see, I'm straight on up.
[4208] And only thing I do is get hold of windowsill to get out, and I'm alright.
[4209] But if it's a low bed ...
Joy (PS0GM) [4210] You've had it.
Joy (PS0GM) [4211] there's just no way.
[4212] He has to ... hoist me up.
Joy (PS0GM) [4213] Mm.
[4214] ... Well as I say I went out and erm ... I thought, well Jill phoned and she said ... at the time my mum had got a boy that was sleeping rough down the sandpits.
[4215] Erm, with nothing.
[4216] No ... no covering or nothing.
[4217] He were only a young boy, seventeen year old.
[4218] His mum and dad kicked him out, they didn't get on together.
[4219] So erm mum went down one day and he was there and she said ... he were with my sister's boy, they were both sleeping rough.
[4220] And my mum said to Adrian I don't like you sleeping down here.
[4221] She said it's bad enough ... you know, being er sleeping rough without sleeping down here with nothing.
[4222] So ... she, she phoned Wendy and said you know, this is ridiculous.
[4223] So they got him a tent, and they put it at the top of my mum's garden.
[4224] And then erm ... eventually Adrian got a job.
[4225] He worked at the hotel didn't he?
[4226] As a chef.
Rudy (PS0GT) [4227] Yeah.
Joy (PS0GM) [4228] And the other one, seeing as it was like September October, getting cold, my mum said well the bed's empty, you might as well come in for the winter and stay here.
[4229] But erm ... he sh he went about ... did he go just before christmas or just after?
Rudy (PS0GT) [4230] He left just before.
Joy (PS0GM) [4231] Can't remember when he went but my ... my sister wanted to come down but course she couldn't come to mum's because he was there.
[4232] And I said well if y why don't you come to us?
[4233] We can always make a bed, you know, for a couple of days.
[4234] And erm and say I went shopping and I I saw that and I liked it and I thought oh ... I'll go in and ask how much it is, he said give us twenty five quid for it, you can have the lot.
[4235] So I said well that's fair enough.
[4236] I come home and told him.
Rudy (PS0GT) [4237] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4238] He went and fetched it up for me.
[4239] I phoned Jill, I said I've got a bed for you.
[4240] I went down and bought ... a quilt and new pillows.
[4241] Only cheapy ones but, you know, enough to cover.
Joy (PS0GM) [4242] That's all you need isn't it?
Joy (PS0GM) [4243] But when the heating's on you don't need much [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4244] No.
Joy (PS0GM) [4245] So erm I was thrilled to bits cos that long cupboard that's in that bedroom, that [...] from the same person that we got the table from.
Joy (PS0GM) [4246] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4247] So we're really pleased with that cos it's absolutely ideal.
[4248] But it's ... too big for that small room really.
Joy (PS0GM) [4249] Yeah.
Joy (PS0GM) [4250] But I didn't want it down here.
[4251] And it, that's the only place it could have stood, there.
Joy (PS0GM) [4252] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4253] And again it would have been ... it's wrong for this room.
[4254] You can see it's [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4255] That's right.
[4256] Yeah it is, yeah. ...
Joy (PS0GM) [4257] But er so there's always things you can do.
[4258] I mean I'd like to get ... I'd like to get some more ... pots and things for the patio and fill them up and I'd like to get a trellis on the ... side of the house with all flowers and that on there but
Joy (PS0GM) [4259] It takes time doesn't it?
Joy (PS0GM) [4260] You've gotta do it when you can afford it.
Joy (PS0GM) [4261] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4262] We went over my sister-in-law's erm ... I you, you've never met Joe have you, my brother?
Joy (PS0GM) [4263] No.
Joy (PS0GM) [4264] They've got a, they've got a ... a house in erm ... Rotten Row in [...] .
[4265] And erm ... he's got a massive paddock at the back of his garden.
[4266] Erm, oh you could get what?
[4267] Six bungalows on it couldn't you?
[4268] Easily.
Rudy (PS0GT) [4269] [...] six.
Joy (PS0GM) [4270] Eh?
Rudy (PS0GT) [4271] [...] six [...] .
Joy (PS0GM) [4272] Yeah well you're talking about four [...] and I'm talking about six bungalows.
[4273] I'm trying to give you an idea of how big the field is.
[4274] And erm ... they started to ... develop the land all round Joe's cos there was nothing behind him, only fields.
[4275] They started to develop and they found saxon bones.
[4276] So they've had five years ... this is not re , this is not ... just recently.
Joy (PS0GM) [4277] As now, yeah.
Joy (PS0GM) [4278] No this is going back about ... ooh ten years ago.
Joy (PS0GM) [4279] Mm.
Joy (PS0GM) [4280] So of course they couldn't do anything.
[4281] And erm my brother said well you've gotta give me some ... they told Joe nobody had got to go on it ... from his property and nobody had got to step on it because [...] .
[4282] So Joe said well it's no good you doing that.
[4283] My kids have got a paddock, where they play.
[4284] They kick the ball, it goes over there.
[4285] He said they're gonna fetch it so you tell me where I can go and then I'll make sure that the kids don't go.
[4286] So it was a law.
[4287] You know they, nobody ever went only Joe.
[4288] They'd g got these white flags

Connie (PS0GN) [4536] He's my boss
Joy (PS0GM) [4537] Is he?
Joy (PS0GM) [4538] We've not seen
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4539] yeah
Connie (PS0GN) [4540] He hasn't been home for twelve months
Joy (PS0GM) [4541] It just means, no
Connie (PS0GN) [4542] once
Joy (PS0GM) [4543] but he, he, I mean we've not seen him ... he's been away four years, I know he's been coming home first, for holidays, visit, but he's not been at home because, well we moved into that house, if you remember we moved
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4544] that's right, but, when we moved into that house ... erm ... I conned him I says er are you gonna give us er ten quid for a new house?
[4545] To buy some mud and he says considering he's gonna
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4546] I says my god I says it'll never be known that my brother said that you can be anything and that was first thing he ever gave me.
Joy (PS0GM) [4547] You see, what does he do again?
[4548] He, does he own the company?
Joy (PS0GM) [4549] Well he had shares in it, or something he said ...
Joy (PS0GM) [4550] So how's that you're still with the same company you're all
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4551] are you away from home as much as you use too be?
[4552] Are you?
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4553] Are you?
Connie (PS0GN) [4554] I'll travel it tomorrow I
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4555] Do you, and where are you this week?
[4556] You, it all in different places?
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4557] I get worried when he does things because when he's working like he's working and he's travelling like he's doing ... I'm, he goes Monday morning, he comes back Friday, by the time we've done our shopping Saturday, he's, he's, if we go out Saturday night it's what, eleven, twelve o'clock or more, it's gone twelve o'clock usually after he's gone and he's back up then.
Joy (PS0GM) [4558] Do you work every night then George?
Joy (PS0GM) [4559] And he travels with it and I'd rather him not.
Connie (PS0GN) [4560] I do more this job, yeah
Joy (PS0GM) [4561] Do you?
Joy (PS0GM) [4562] I'd rather him not travel it, I'd rather him stop here on Sunday and not come home so that he's got ample rest, cos he's not getting it ... I, I, I dunno, I, I might be wrong, but he moans at me cos I knock me
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4563] out, he says to me you'll kill yourself, you always want to do something, but to be honest it's worse for me to sit there and watch that, it's more tiring because by the end of the night I'm not tired or I've been asleep all evening I, I'm better to go out, I know it sounds awful but I don't like being trapped, I don't like being in because somebody seems to think I should be in
Joy (PS0GM) [4564] Yeah
Joy (PS0GM) [4565] that, and, and, I mean it's probably better for George to do what he wants to do, rather to do what he don't want to do because we used to be in the same predicament when we were doing cabaret, we'd go down to London on the Saturday, we'd leave here what about half three, four o'clock, so if we stayed in digs, we'd be finished work say midnight, we'd be back in digs for one, then he'll go up till seven the next night
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4566] yeah, yeah I mean
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4567] what do you do I mean, your ok you can go to bed, but there's only a certain amount of hours you can stay in bed cos then you're wondering and wondering and won so you're more tired trying to find something to do so we
Joy (PS0GM) [4568] That's right
Joy (PS0GM) [4569] we made it straight away, we were working Saturday and Sunday in London as soon as we were finished I always used to make us a pack of sandwiches about six or eight didn't I?
[4570] A massive great big flask of coffee and when we got there we stopped and had a sandwich and a coffee, and we'd go in the club, set all up and we'd sit quiet and then we'd have a quiet drink wouldn't we?
[4571] As soon as we'd packed all the stuff in the ba van we'd have the rest of the sandwiches the rest of the coffee or another cup of coffee and then we'd get on the road and even if we'd got back for four, by the time we'd got home and, and had something to eat or if we didn't want nothing to eat, watched the telly for half an hour and get to bed, you've got from eleven till sort of three or four the next day which is just nice because you're in your own home
Joy (PS0GM) [4572] That's right.
Joy (PS0GM) [4573] But you think it'll kill him from one o'clock in the night till seven o'clock the next morning, it's, it's ridiculous and financially were no different because you've got to pay for digs you've got to pay for the petrol
Joy (PS0GM) [4574] That's what he says, that's what he says, but I
Joy (PS0GM) [4575] I mean driving isn't, driving is not necessarily
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4576] to the right sort of people, you enjoy driving it's a shame you don't drive because then that way you will have your Saturdays free because you could get your shopping done and, and be done.
Joy (PS0GM) [4577] That's right, yeah.
Joy (PS0GM) [4578] And then it'll give you the time just to relax together but I mean that, that's why I say, Rudy hasn't got a clue in this
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4579] my mum's seventy five, how does she get back er ten pound of potatoes and all the week's shopping, I say well I'll go and then he moans at me cos I'm running around after everybody else but
Rudy (PS0GT) [4580] True
Joy (PS0GM) [4581] Yeah, but, no, no, it's exactly the same as them he couldn't be bothered, I mean my mum's eighty and, and she can't get out now and he can't
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4582] the same you know with me, but I mean end of day you've got it to do
Joy (PS0GM) [4583] Of course you have.
Joy (PS0GM) [4584] I mean I've got to look after her
Joy (PS0GM) [4585] Mm ... I get worried sometimes for him.
[4586] You see my brother Joe is wrong, he should have, he's a workaholic, and they're doing sixteen hours a day and they're working, can you imagine, and I mean my youngest brother Brad who's working with him said er Joe don't stop, a week, no a fortnight la , a fortnight last Sunday ... they had to put a ... not air conditioning ... yeah it is air conditioning unit in Smith's in Staines and they had to whatever happens they had to get it working for the next day, it's got to be in and working and they worked all day, my brother, my eldest brother Derek weld it for nine hours non stop, to the point where Brad our, my younger brother and Joe had
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4587] just working in the same room as him welding all them hours ...
Joy (PS0GM) [4588] You've lost your
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4589] you've lost your
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4590] The dog has got it
Connie (PS0GN) [4591] I've lost me
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4592] Like erm, like Maureen she's erm ... she's worried for Joe, she says he don't stop, he don't, but you see the difference being is it's Joe's business and it's as he said, some people don't pay you for twelve months, and a lot of your money has gone out before you can get a chance to get it back in
Joy (PS0GM) [4593] Back in
Joy (PS0GM) [4594] I mean they don't put, they don't, I understand in, in, when you've got your own business like Brad and them, well our Joe can't be hard up he does a job and it brings him thirty grand in
Joy (PS0GM) [4595] Mm
Joy (PS0GM) [4596] I said yeah, but that thirty grand he's got to
Joy (PS0GM) [4597] he's gotta wait for
Joy (PS0GM) [4598] he's got to wait for, plus the fact that he's probably spent twenty of it out getting equipment
Rudy (PS0GT) [4599] That's right
Joy (PS0GM) [4600] That's right, yeah
Joy (PS0GM) [4601] then you know, they don't believe that
Rudy (PS0GT) [4602] I don't know
Joy (PS0GM) [4603] he said well you know
Rudy (PS0GT) [4604] my boss you see my boss isn't very workaholic at all
Joy (PS0GM) [4605] Mm, his boss is the same
Rudy (PS0GT) [4606] he's in there every morning before eight o'clock and he don't leave there much before half past six, sometimes seven o'clock, and then the workers goes in on Saturdays and if he knows there's nothing to do just walk around a crowded place and
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [4607] but I mean he's a millionaire, and that's how, I mean this is the difference between probably between him and Joe, I mean he don't depend on money to come into this
Connie (PS0GN) [4608] No
Rudy (PS0GT) [4609] cos there still an
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [4610] so great in running different
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [4611] and so on, every month their money is straight into the bank all their cheques come in straight into the bank so he'll, you know, and I mean our pla , and the whole of the site nearly is let out for different people, you know, which is money coming in all the time
Joy (PS0GM) [4612] Yeah
Rudy (PS0GT) [4613] you see?
Connie (PS0GN) [4614] Yeah ...
Rudy (PS0GT) [4615] But I mean you know he's a workaholic and he expects everybody to be the same and then he works in there by the time I get there in the morning he works, works solidly right through until I leave there at night, you know.
Joy (PS0GM) [4616] Yeah, but you see then he's at fault ... I mean like yesterday he come in he said he's got to drop off at Milton Keynes and he said I, I, he weren't due to be dropped until what half past ten?
Rudy (PS0GT) [4617] Half past ten
Joy (PS0GM) [4618] And when he got there the bloke said oh just pull up and go and get it done now, I said now any other man would of gone in the cafe and thought right, I would of been drop now till twelve
Connie (PS0GN) [4619] That's true.
Joy (PS0GM) [4620] and he being dropped at sort of nine o'clock
Connie (PS0GN) [4621] Yeah.
Joy (PS0GM) [4622] he went straight back to work
Rudy (PS0GT) [4623] Yeah but, yeah but you see
Joy (PS0GM) [4624] you see he always makes an excuse but
Rudy (PS0GT) [4625] no it's a, it's, it's, it, it, it is not like that I'm making an excuse, I always think ahead and look ahead right, now I've got a phone in my cab, all the other lorries have, you know, a mobile phone, right, how he know I'm supposed to give the
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [4626] drop off at half past ten right, that's
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4627] yeah
Rudy (PS0GT) [4628] if I finish on road in the
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [4629] right, they jump in my cab and I decide to drive away and he phones and then he
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [4630] can you get the so and so erm
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [4631] driver for me on the phone, so he calls me up, oh we've got load of them he said
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...] ...
Rudy (PS0GT) [4632] I get back to the phone many time later you know ... see, I can't
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [4633] be late, because then I would be lying cos I'm just home and I want to get
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [4634] pick up so and so, so and so, I know, you, I think
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [4635] drop myself in the
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [4636] you know
Joy (PS0GM) [4637] That's right, yeah.
Rudy (PS0GT) [4638] Whereas if I had a, a, a phone in my cab, right and he, and he phone me etcetera etcetera
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [4639] at night, ok
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [4640] it will need for him to phone the firm then because he got me direct
Joy (PS0GM) [4641] That's right yeah, yeah.
[4642] But I tell you what you don't get any badges nowadays for being honest, I know that much .
Joy (PS0GM) [4643] Well, no , I'm afraid not and it's, it's a sad state of affairs, I mean when you see
Rudy (PS0GT) [4644] Well I see
Joy (PS0GM) [4645] of when you've got to be a rotter to get on but I'm afraid that's how it's gonna be
Joy (PS0GM) [4646] Well that's all , that's all that it is, it's all the rotten people that are now getting on.
Rudy (PS0GT) [4647] But as I was saying to George the other day
Joy (PS0GM) [4648] Or selfish
Rudy (PS0GT) [4649] and, and, and
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [4650] you know, he's that sort of bloke, he's a very nice bloke and he's got a heart of gold and he's saved us no end of the money ain't he, since I've been working for him?
Joy (PS0GM) [4651] He's saved us a lot of money in one way, but he don't pay the wage
Rudy (PS0GT) [4652] This is what I said
Joy (PS0GM) [4653] I mean
Rudy (PS0GT) [4654] so I suppose one counteracts the other
Joy (PS0GM) [4655] Compensates yeah
Rudy (PS0GT) [4656] compensates for the other
Joy (PS0GM) [4657] yeah, yeah ,
Joy (PS0GM) [4658] I mean I know which one I'd rather have
Joy (PS0GM) [4659] yeah
Joy (PS0GM) [4660] the
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4661] that's right, yeah, that's right, yeah, I mean it's, it's, it's, disgusted when you know a bloke for this firm
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4662] and all this money that he's got, can't pay a man a living wage, so ... but it's a decent as I say, he's lucky to be got a job these days.
Joy (PS0GM) [4663] That's true, that's very true
Joy (PS0GM) [4664] I mean I know that now because I never thought I'd be on the scrap heap, but sometimes I really do feel as if I am
Joy (PS0GM) [4665] Yeah
Joy (PS0GM) [4666] because er, when they say how old are you and you say forty nine, they say oh well we, we, we were really looking for somebody a bit younger
Connie (PS0GN) [4667] Mm
Joy (PS0GM) [4668] and you think to yourself how can you, you know, I'm prepared to work cos I'm
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4669] I mean she said to me when I went for this Men Mencap job she said erm, have you got any trade behind you?
[4670] I said well I can do everything in the hotel trade from housemaid to housekeeper to barmaid, the only thing I haven't done is managed one but I could do that if I had to and I done, done booking of the reception and I've done bar, I've done diner's room, I've done kitchen, I've done
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [4671] I've done chambermaiding, I've done housekeeping, there ain't many other things you can do ... and then she says and what about cooking?
[4672] I said well I, I'm a confident cook, I've cooked from meals all round the world you know, and she s and erm, she said oh that's worth knowing, now the

Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]

Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [5198] if you work it out this year, right, Joy keeping her dole right, this one, say
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [5199] having this whole thing out, right, she'd pay right, I bring home wage, right believe it or not I'll tell you it's about between a hundred and eleven and a hundred and fourteen pounds a week, that's forty and ten, that's a hundred and fifty pounds a week, right, now if she got to pay poll tax out of that, right, what she's getting which is twenty odd pounds a month
Joy (PS0GM) [5200] Mm
Rudy (PS0GT) [5201] I've got to take twenty odd pounds a month, right
Joy (PS0GM) [5202] and forty
Rudy (PS0GT) [5203] that's forty
Joy (PS0GM) [5204] that's fifty pounds innit for a month, so that's a month
Joy (PS0GM) [5205] No that's a month so it's fiver a week
Rudy (PS0GT) [5206] Yeah
Joy (PS0GM) [5207] fiver a week
Rudy (PS0GT) [5208] yeah
Joy (PS0GM) [5209] plus your rent

Joy (PS0GM) [5213] you know, you ain't got nothing to live on at the end of the
Joy (PS0GM) [5214] No you've not
Rudy (PS0GT) [5215] so this is what I'm saying how come that the she's still got the poll, we have to, got to pay poll tax at that rate because she's not working
Joy (PS0GM) [5216] Mm, they told me though that there's too much money coming in the house, you, you, you're only allowed to have I think it's about sixty something
Joy (PS0GM) [5217] Yeah
Joy (PS0GM) [5218] pounds from
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [5219] to get any relief if any of it's
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [5220] well I know when, I know when Alan and Jade were both made emplo , unemployed and Alan withdrawal his dole and when Jade was unemployed they took the dole off Alan and give him sixty pound a week which was you know
Joy (PS0GM) [5221] Income support
Joy (PS0GM) [5222] income support ... so
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [5223] the dole
Joy (PS0GM) [5224] I had, I had a letter the other day saying that I'd been paying thirty nine pounds, fifty a week to live on, but I've been entitled to fifty five pound something for low income support so are they gonna backdate all that and then get their
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [5225] I reckon they'll have to, yeah they will have to surely, that's their error ... they'll have to
Joy (PS0GM) [5226] They said a, a normal person living on their own is only entitled to thirty nine pound sixty a week and that's what I've got in that book, but I don't think they realise that I I'm on me own and I've got a gas, electricity and everything else to pay out of that ...
Rudy (PS0GT) [5227] I don't know how, I, I as I say I can't figure it out how they work it out though because I mean are they
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [5228] I don't know whether they
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [5229] I was so annoyed I thought to myself
Joy (PS0GM) [5230] If you go down Citizen's Advice it's all done, on a big, on a big board down there what you're entitled to
Rudy (PS0GT) [5231] You would have been , you, you, you would have been better off paying your normal rates as you used to pay
Joy (PS0GM) [5232] Yeah, yeah
Rudy (PS0GT) [5233] than in actual fact because they're making a
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [5234] that's what Kevin and Cindy said their rates on that house were a hundred and something pound a year, their poll tax is nearly four hundred
Rudy (PS0GT) [5235] Four hundred
Joy (PS0GM) [5236] they're paying three hundred and eighty pounds, they're paying
Rudy (PS0GT) [5237] Yeah, they're better off paying the normal rates
Joy (PS0GM) [5238] said it's ridiculous
Rudy (PS0GT) [5239] and they've stopped this on you and they expect you to pay all this amount of money I don't know
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [5240] Yes, we did have some good news about that court case, about that accident we had, it's all been thrown out of court
Joy (PS0GM) [5241] What car accident?
Joy (PS0GM) [5242] You know we had an accident along where we opened that car door and that cyclist
Joy (PS0GM) [5243] Oh yeah
Joy (PS0GM) [5244] hit us in the side?
[5245] Well they got to court without a solicitor cos they weren't entitled to Legal Aid, and now you see that's another thing, they're both out of work, they weren't entitled to any Legal Aid, so they had to go on their own to court
Rudy (PS0GT) [5246] Yeah
Joy (PS0GM) [5247] and explain the situation and the court said oh well we'll take it to the magistrate's then, then he had a letter two weeks later saying that it's been thrown out again, they haven't got a case cos she were in the wrong, she's never, ever have gone
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [5248] over round the left hand side in the first place, but she must have been in the wrong so they must have seen it as well, they haven't really got a strong case so they threw it out of court and last week he had a letter, he opened it, from the, from the court, and he thought oh gawld here we go again, he's got jury service, oh
Joy (PS0GM) [5249] How old is he?
[5250] Oh right, I'd love to do that
Joy (PS0GM) [5251] So would I, it's in April
Joy (PS0GM) [5252] I'd love to sit in
Joy (PS0GM) [5253] it said if you are on the dole or unemployed or whatever you must take this form down, because he's entitled to
Rudy (PS0GT) [5254] So, so, so much per day
Joy (PS0GM) [5255] Yeah
Rudy (PS0GT) [5256] or whatever it is, yeah
Joy (PS0GM) [5257] yeah, yeah, for, for, for fee, for a, for a meal
Rudy (PS0GT) [5258] yeah
Joy (PS0GM) [5259] I don't know why, if he gets put on a murder case he's there for three weeks in a hotel, it's easy he said well I, you'll be able to come over if you want to it'll be like sitting at work, no one will know
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [5260] It might be, I think in actual fact during your er, I think it might be a waste of time, but I think it's probably advisable to try and find out a bit more about this
Joy (PS0GM) [5261] I've been darling, I, believe me I've, you ain't gotta do it
Joy (PS0GM) [5262] Well I've got to go down tomorrow, I ain't got a clue what to do.
Joy (PS0GM) [5263] I rang, I rang, I went to the dole office, when I went down I ask them as soon as I left Ann said the same, go down the dole when you ask about your poll tax, they said to me we can't give you any id , er anything, you have to phone them, council building site, I phone the council building and they asked me, that's why I sent all your wage slips in for
Rudy (PS0GT) [5264] Yeah
Joy (PS0GM) [5265] and that was for that, then I had a letter back to say that we were having, there was too much money coming in a week for me to draw unemployment and then they, then a few days later I had this double page letter a big one that says you are entitled to no prescription help, X amount of pounds after erm eighty pounds per glasses you are responsible for the first eighty pound, we say that you can afford to pay that, so much on your teeth, if you're visiting somebody in prison then you exceed a certain amount of mileage you can only get it if you exceed more than twenty five pound incurring, then I thought oh blow it, forget it, and I never done it, that all come to then, that's why I wanted a ten of your wage, wage slips ... you remember now?
[5266] That's it.
Rudy (PS0GT) [5267] Yeah, a hundred and eleven pound a week
Joy (PS0GM) [5268] Oh say, say about my fault, I shouldn't want to pay
Rudy (PS0GT) [5269] I, I tell you what
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [5270] I've got more money, I've got more money than that and after I've been, after, after I've paid, after I've paid the tax
Joy (PS0GM) [5271] and I'm not, I'm not paying mine before October cos as far as I'm concerned it was paid, he has my wages
Rudy (PS0GT) [5272] out of that and my National Insurance contributions, that's all I come out with
Joy (PS0GM) [5273] Mm
Joy (PS0GM) [5274] So like I even said that to the coppers today I said he's been handling seventeen hundred pounds near enough near as damn it

Joy (PS0GM) [5283] nearly, nearly, nearly seven hundred pounds a month
Joy (PS0GM) [5284] a month
Joy (PS0GM) [5285] and he had over a thousand, one hundred a month

Joy (PS0GM) [5287] nearly eighteen hundred pounds a month
Joy (PS0GM) [5288] Did he now?
Joy (PS0GM) [5289] and yet the mortgage was three months in arrears, no poll tax paid, no other bills paid, all he's paying is the gas, electric and the water rates
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [5290] I just don't see how they can waste that money, but there you are, I said that one day, I, I put down that fact today

Rudy (PS0GT) [5295] No five hundred quid
Joy (PS0GM) [5296] overdrawn?
Joy (PS0GM) [5297] Well he, he's on himself hanging over his car because he said it's, it's, that it was an inconvenience cos they were late for work, he suppose to be getting a taxi into work every day and back, but where's his proof that he did?
Joy (PS0GM) [5298] He declared
Joy (PS0GM) [5299] He's declaring that he's using a taxi and it costs him a hundred and sixty pound a month, every day back and forwards to work, well everyone knows that's a lie cos she takes him to work
Rudy (PS0GT) [5300] You ought to shop him for the income tax then
Joy (PS0GM) [5301] I'm gonna ...
Joy (PS0GM) [5302] As I say he's getting away

Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [5331] income tax man had go
Joy (PS0GM) [5332] that copper man had told me this morning
Rudy (PS0GT) [5333] because you're suppose to declare what you earn
Joy (PS0GM) [5334] What you earn, yeah
Rudy (PS0GT) [5335] for a year and pay the tax out of that
Joy (PS0GM) [5336] yeah ...
Rudy (PS0GT) [5337] right
Joy (PS0GM) [5338] mm
Rudy (PS0GT) [5339] but how did they
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [5340] they'll get, they'll get you
Rudy (PS0GT) [5341] When they start probing you, they go right back and I mean they went back what ten, twelve years didn't they?
Joy (PS0GM) [5342] About twelve years when I was in Jersey
Rudy (PS0GT) [5343] Yeah ... yes
Joy (PS0GM) [5344] It's frightening what they did to us.
Joy (PS0GM) [5345] Well he said to Dave that a policeman hasn't got the clout to phone up the erm ... driving place you know in London where, where you thought that, what's it called D L V C
Rudy (PS0GT) [5346] It's the
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [5347] yeah, to see if that car's been sold, stolen or whatever and yet a solicitor come ... he said your solicitor will be able to pick up the phone, take you through the right channels, see if he's sold that car, he hasn't sold the car, who's he sold it to
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [5348] yeah, everything.
[5349] He said that's what you've got to do first thing Monday morning, find out where that car is, he said, and then you want half the money
Rudy (PS0GT) [5350] seemed that the police and we've got a
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [5351] in theft and fraud and
Joy (PS0GM) [5352] yeah
Rudy (PS0GT) [5353] things like this, but regards to the fact that when, when something is sold to somebody right, erm, and then a, and, and the person who's selling it receives the money, I mean the person the police can't do nothing at all about it unless fraud comes into it
Joy (PS0GM) [5354] I mean, he, he said about
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [5355] come up mum's with the, and he snatched my handbag and he took the keys, he said that copper has got no rights to tell him to hand over them keys to me, I said what and he snatched them out of my handbag and I've got no rights to my own house keys and I said what rights have I got to do, down his flat and collect half of my stuff back then?
Rudy (PS0GT) [5356] Yes
Joy (PS0GM) [5357] He said you've got no rights at all, I said so what rights has he got to coming in my own home then, he ain't paying for it, what rights has he got to it?
Joy (PS0GM) [5358] What he say?
Joy (PS0GM) [5359] He said well he's got rights because he owns half of it, I said owns half of it but he ain't paying for half of it.
Joy (PS0GM) [5360] That's right
Joy (PS0GM) [5361] He says no, but he, he, he still half owns it, he says his name's on the lease, I said but it still don't make it right that if he, if he earned half of it then half the bills are his
Joy (PS0GM) [5362] Half the bills, that's right
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [5363] Then you've got to pay half the bills
Joy (PS0GM) [5364] Yeah ... I said well I earn half of it as well then and I've worked for half of it, but I ain't paying the bills either ...
Joy (PS0GM) [5365] Seems, it all seems strange to me
Joy (PS0GM) [5366] He said it'll all come out in court, he said he, he won't get away with it
Joy (PS0GM) [5367] Who said that?
Joy (PS0GM) [5368] Oh that copper, he said he, he said the thing is he said what you've gotta do is give him as much shit and aggravation as you can possibly give him, keep him hot and keep him roasted up he said because what happens is he's getting along, long and he's thinking oh I can do this and I can do that and I can do the other, he said but if you can get your solicitor to keep him on his toes he ain't got time to think about nothing, he said and if he has done that job himself, he's laughing at the moment, I said well he must have done it ...
Rudy (PS0GT) [5369] I think that, I think in actual fact, that the only thing really to do is if ... he doesn't want to be himself do something else and then he won't do it ever again
Joy (PS0GM) [5370] And then he should sign it all over to me
Rudy (PS0GT) [5371] He should sign it all over to you and say alright I'm relinquishing all responsibility
Joy (PS0GM) [5372] But he can't do that, until he's paid up every penny he owes
Joy (PS0GM) [5373] I was gonna say
Rudy (PS0GT) [5374] Yeah
Joy (PS0GM) [5375] if she, if she gets it all signed over to her she signs all the bills over
Rudy (PS0GT) [5376] but you see
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [5377] yeah well then
Joy (PS0GM) [5378] he can't do that anyway, for him, for him to sign them deeds
Rudy (PS0GT) [5379] no
Joy (PS0GM) [5380] and everything over to me, he's got to be paid all the loans completely off plus the mortgage that's in arrear, that, that house got to be round to square one with a, with a fourteen thousand pound mortgage and that's it before he can sign that house over to me
Joy (PS0GM) [5381] Yeah
Joy (PS0GM) [5382] That means that the two loans that he had, he can't sign them over to me
Rudy (PS0GT) [5383] And that was on the house?
Joy (PS0GM) [5384] Yeah
Rudy (PS0GT) [5385] Oh well
Joy (PS0GM) [5386] he can't sign it over
Rudy (PS0GT) [5387] No he can't
Joy (PS0GM) [5388] to me even if he wanted to
Rudy (PS0GT) [5389] I didn't know whether he had two loans or not or whatever it is because
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [5390] Yeah he had two
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Rudy (PS0GT) [5391] that if had relinquished all his responsibility regarding the mortgage and so on and signed it over to you, then you could have turned round and say alright that's it, I'm going to sell the house
Joy (PS0GM) [5392] That's right and there's nothing he could do nothing about
Rudy (PS0GT) [5393] and if the house was , and if the house is, if say for argument sake that the house after ... you've sold it, you've only your, er fourteen or sixteen thousand pounds to pay then and you've paid that off, right, and the house was sold for about forty thousand
Joy (PS0GM) [5394] Mm
Rudy (PS0GT) [5395] right, you've made yourself a, your, twenty thousand anyway, then you could probably buy a, a nice little two bedroom bungalow
Joy (PS0GM) [5396] Yeah
Rudy (PS0GT) [5397] for about thirty thousand or something like that and then go back to work and just pay your own mortgage off
Joy (PS0GM) [5398] Yeah, but I can't do that
Rudy (PS0GT) [5399] but a, as I say if it's, you know, if he gotta pay off all this money first well
Joy (PS0GM) [5400] Well you're such
Unknown speaker (KCPPSUNK) [...]
Joy (PS0GM) [5401] at the minute cos you've got, you're sitting in your house
Joy (PS0GM) [5402] Yes
