1 (Tape 006201)

Ethel (PS140) [1] I can't think who who she is but er I'm sure that was the prize.
[2] About five pounds and a silver tray.
[3] Now it's thousands they get.
Sheila (PS141) [4] Well yeah but I suppose that five pounds in those days was a lot [...]
Ethel (PS140) [5] [...] four noughts on the end of it isn't it?
Sidney (PS0SV) [6] Yeah I presume we're talking about Wimbledon prize money?
Ethel (PS140) [7] Well these er big sports people
Sidney (PS0SV) [8] Oh blimey yes.
Ethel (PS140) [9] blimey they get ... [cough] ...
Sheila (PS141) [10] Yeah well people like
Ethel (PS140) [11] But this girl was talking this is a few years back now.
[12] So I think when they started getting all this
Sheila (PS141) [13] Can't think of, can't think of who you mean actually.
Ethel (PS140) [14] Oh, just an ordinary name she had.
[15] ... [...] it was Mary somebody.
[16] But she was rather a big girl.
Sheila (PS141) [17] I know the one you mean.
[18] I dunno about Mary.
[19] I know the one you mean.
[20] Quite tall about five foot ... eight or something like that.
[21] Nice sort of roundish face and erm
Sidney (PS0SV) [22] You're talking about an English lady now are you?
Sheila (PS141) [23] Yeah.
Sidney (PS0SV) [24] A British girl?
Ethel (PS140) [25] Yes yes.
[26] She's married and she's got children and she, she's tall and she got married now, yes.
[27] She was talking some years back now about
Sheila (PS141) [...]
Ethel (PS140) [28] the prize that she got when she
Sidney (PS0SV) [29] Yeah.
Ethel (PS140) [30] Wimbledon championship.
[31] I think it was about five pounds and a silver tray.
Sidney (PS0SV) [32] Yes cos in those days you see if you remember they were all erm amateurs that played.
[33] It wasn't
Ethel (PS140) [34] All amateurs
Sidney (PS0SV) [35] Yes.
[36] It wasn't until erm oh I don't know what year it was when it was open compete and everybody including professionals
Ethel (PS140) [37] erm yes.
[38] Cos now they're nearly all professionals aren't they?
Sidney (PS0SV) [39] Oh yes indeed.
Ethel (PS140) [40] Mm.
[41] Nearly all of them.
[42] But it's ridiculous the money that they earn.
[43] You don't want er clubs getting into debt.
[44] Oh do you really think any footballer's worth all that?
Sheila (PS141) [45] Yeah evidently it looks as though Gazza's thing's off now.
Ethel (PS140) [46] Yeah he's gone.
Sheila (PS141) [47] No.
[48] No it's all, it's all fallen through it seems. [...]
Ethel (PS140) [49] Again?
Sheila (PS141) [50] Yeah they've got somebody else.
[51] Erm Gazza's fallen off.
Ethel (PS140) [52] First of all of course it was all off when he did that.
Sidney (PS0SV) [53] Well according to the er Express I just had a look at, they reckon it's on but for about half the original sum.
Sheila (PS141) [54] Oh.
Ethel (PS140) [55] No it [...]
Sidney (PS0SV) [56] Subject to
Sheila (PS141) [57] All Gascoigne's multi million pound move to Lazio now looks dead and buried.
[58] The Italian club have bid for Darco Pansere the red star striker whose penalty won his side the European Cup in Bari on Wednesday.
[59] And he will cost Lazio just four million.
[60] They have moved for him because they can no longer wait for Gascoigne who will not play again this year.
[61] Lazio want a big new name for next season.
[62] And although Nat Solomon, Tottenham's financial expert ... mm wait a minute ... was here in Rome yesterday attempting to save the Gazza deal I understand it is off.
[63] The news will throw Tottenham's future to fresh confusion and leave the club hoping desperately that manager Terry Venables can put together a deal to save them from collapse.
[64] Gascoigne was to have gone to Lazio at the end of July for the club to monitor his rehabilitation after the knee ligament operation that threatened his career.
[65] That now will not happen.
[66] And Tottenham's clever campaign to save the club is now down to one man Venables and his business expertise.
[67] In Rome yesterday it was evident that the Gazza deal was doomed because Juventus who were to provide half the four million that was to have been Lazio's down payment had gone cold on the deal.
Ethel (PS140) [68] Well once you've done that it's like twisting your ankle.
[69] It's always weaker.
Sidney (PS0SV) [70] Yeah.
Ethel (PS140) [71] There's always that ... that erm fear.
Sheila (PS141) [72] He looks a very strong sort of person but he walks [...]
Ethel (PS140) [73] By the way Sid would you know how to put a new lamp, light bulb thing in a fridge?
Sidney (PS0SV) [74] What the light in the fridge?
Ethel (PS140) [75] Yeah.
[76] I can't see in that bloody fridge for love nor money.
[77] For one thing the lamp, the light's gone and Tony got me a new one but it wasn't [...]
Sheila (PS141) [78] You mean you can't see it to put round the corner here like this?
Ethel (PS140) [79] Yes.
Sheila (PS141) [80] Yeah they do go off.
Ethel (PS140) [81] Can't see how to put it in.
Sidney (PS0SV) [82] Oh.
[83] Er well offhand I don't actually know but I'll, I'll get me glasses I'll have to
Ethel (PS140) [84] Have you got your glasses?
Sidney (PS0SV) [85] I haven't no, I never bring them with me of course.
Sheila (PS141) [86] Let's have a look come on.
Sidney (PS0SV) [87] I don't know erm.
[88] It's probably just a case of a couple of screws to take the cover off.
Ethel (PS140) [89] Oh is that what you have to do?
Sidney (PS0SV) [90] Probably.
Ethel (PS140) [...]
Sidney (PS0SV) [91] I don't know.
[92] I do not know.
[93] ... Can you see the bulb?
Sheila (PS141) [94] Well no I can't actually ours is this side isn't it?
[95] ... Mm.
Sidney (PS0SV) [96] I should imagine it would be in here somewhere.
[97] It's got to be.
Sheila (PS141) [98] Oh look here it is it's here.
[99] There's the bulb here.
Sidney (PS0SV) [100] Yeah.
[101] ... [...] bayonet fitting or a screw fitting.
Sheila (PS141) [102] There's a screw here Sid, just one screw.
Sidney (PS0SV) [103] Is there?
Sheila (PS141) [104] Yeah one screw.
Sidney (PS0SV) [105] Well I'll call, I'll call down tomorrow mum.
[106] Do you need a screwdriver?
Ethel (PS140) [107] I've got two little screwdrivers yes [...] small screwdrivers.
[108] What's happened to that bloody light?
Sheila (PS141) [109] They're funny little sausagey ones aren't they?
Ethel (PS140) [110] Yes.
Sheila (PS141) [111] Here it is.
Ethel (PS140) [112] Is that it?
Sidney (PS0SV) [113] Have you got replacement bulb there dear?
Sheila (PS141) [114] Mm, looks a bit small dunnit?
[115] Oh no.
Sidney (PS0SV) [116] Can I have a look at that?
Ethel (PS140) [117] Have you got a screwdriver, small screwdriver?
Sidney (PS0SV) [118] Oh it is a screw fitting.
Sheila (PS141) [119] I think it's only a question of taking it out turning it round and screwing it back in again.
Sidney (PS0SV) [120] It's a screw yeah.
[121] Let's have a look?
Sheila (PS141) [122] It isn't difficult Sid it's just that you seem to, you want a torch that comes this way to see how you
Ethel (PS140) [123] Yes.
Sheila (PS141) [124] you want, you want a, you want a erm a little mirror.
[125] It's like get in like that and er the thing goes in this way.
[126] Well you know you can go like that but then once you've got it out you've got to fiddle a bit.
[127] It only needs turning.
[128] No you push them in don't you to
Sidney (PS0SV) [129] No no no it's a screw fitting.
Sheila (PS141) [130] Is it coming out?
[131] Is it coming out?
Sidney (PS0SV) [132] Yeah but it's got a cover or something over it. ...
Sheila (PS141) [133] Yeah that's right [...] a mirror and then that's a [...] screwdriver in [...] .
[134] ... There you are Sid.
[135] Sid?
Sidney (PS0SV) [136] What's that?
Sheila (PS141) [137] There's a mirror. ...
Ethel (PS140) [138] I should have thought it would have been easier than that to put a new one in.
[139] Could have done it from the front.
Sidney (PS0SV) [140] There's a bulb.
[141] I've got a bulb loose but there's a little
Sheila (PS141) [142] There's a screw there I think there's that screw's got to come out obviously, hasn't it?
Sidney (PS0SV) [143] Don't think so.
Sheila (PS141) [144] Have you got a light in this?
Ethel (PS140) [145] Er, here yeah.
Sheila (PS141) [146] Oh thanks.
[147] Turn it a bit more upright, there see.
[148] Is there one the other side Sid?
Sidney (PS0SV) [149] No.
Sheila (PS141) [150] No.
[151] Just one.
[152] You sure it doesn't just push in and does it come?
[153] I would have thought myself that all it needed was going boomph in and turn it and get the other one in.
[154] Push it in Sid.
Sidney (PS0SV) [155] No it, it's definitely a screw fitting.
[156] You see.
[157] You screw it in and out there's no bayonet fitting on it.
[158] It's this cover over it.
[159] This little wire grill.
[160] Wait a minute, hold it.
Sheila (PS141) [161] Can't take this erm can't take that front off can we?
Sidney (PS0SV) [162] No you wouldn't get that from there.
Ethel (PS140) [163] When it first went off some time ago it wouldn't go ... but one day I took I took a jelly out in a glass dish and it bonked this thing and the light came on again.
[164] And then soon after it went off and it's never come on since.
Sheila (PS141) [165] Where d'you put the light on?
[166] Does it just erm
Sidney (PS0SV) [167] Well it'd come on automatically hasn't it?
Sheila (PS141) [168] Oh automatically.
Ethel (PS140) [169] Oh yes the light comes on as you open the door doesn't it?
Sheila (PS141) [170] You haven't erm
Sidney (PS0SV) [171] That's the switch, that's the on and off switch.
Ethel (PS140) [172] That's, this one shuts it off.
[173] You haven't pushed that in have you dear?
Sidney (PS0SV) [174] Yeah.
Sheila (PS141) [175] Yes.
[176] Yes he has.
Ethel (PS140) [177] Oh you've shut off this freezer then.
Sidney (PS0SV) [178] Don't do, this is a freezer Sid, don't ... How does it come out?
Ethel (PS140) [179] It comes out normally on it's own.
Sidney (PS0SV) [180] Oh.
Sheila (PS141) [181] Oh you've pushed that in for good now Sid, now the freezer's off.
Ethel (PS140) [182] It'll, it'll come off.
[183] It'll come out on it's own ... probably.
Sidney (PS0SV) [184] That's when it works.
Ethel (PS140) [185] But I've done it sometimes with a pair of tweezers.
Sidney (PS0SV) [186] I can't see that [...]
Ethel (PS140) [187] I only defrosted this oh it was yesterday or the day before.
Sheila (PS141) [188] That's very awkward like that. [...] .
Ethel (PS140) [189] Oh if you can't manage it Sid don't sort of bear with it.
Sidney (PS0SV) [190] I can't see I need my glasses to see.
[191] There's a screw here mum.
Ethel (PS140) [192] Oh.
Sidney (PS0SV) [193] At the back which
Ethel (PS140) [194] That has to come out.
Sidney (PS0SV) [195] which probably has
Ethel (PS140) [196] [...] round the back?
Sidney (PS0SV) [197] Yeah.
Ethel (PS140) [198] It's ridiculous place to put it isn't it?
Sheila (PS141) [199] No I think it its [...] doesn't go after all that.
Sidney (PS0SV) [200] Mm.
Sheila (PS141) [201] How can anybody really pay [...]
Sidney (PS0SV) [202] It looks to me there's that one screw holding it on cos two sides of that, two prongs of that case there are loose and the other one seems to be ... yes it must be
Ethel (PS140) [203] I dunno what this thing's for I'm sure.
Sidney (PS0SV) [204] That's your on off switch, the door catches that, that is for the light.
Ethel (PS140) [205] Oh I see.
[206] The door shuts it.
[207] Is that it?
[208] Oh I see.
Sidney (PS0SV) [209] Yeah.
[210] This is a this is a switch .
[211] The door comes on to that and erm
Ethel (PS140) [212] Oh.
[213] Well this this of course erm shuts off the freezer that thing.
Sidney (PS0SV) [214] erm
Ethel (PS140) [215] See when I went and defrost it I shut that off and er ... opened this
Sidney (PS0SV) [216] Yeah.
Ethel (PS140) [217] and put a bowl of hot water in there and that defrosts it quickly.
Sidney (PS0SV) [218] Yeah.
[219] Yes.
[220] So how do you come back on again?
Ethel (PS140) [221] And get it out in there you see.
Sidney (PS0SV) [222] And how do you switch it back on again?
Ethel (PS140) [223] And it comes on again.
Sidney (PS0SV) [224] Well how do you switch it back on again if that switches it off?
Ethel (PS140) [225] Well it automatically comes on you see it it's all frozen at the moment it will probably shoot out itself I did try it once to try and pull it out but, I think
Sidney (PS0SV) [226] But this must [...] , is this an on an, an on on switch?
Ethel (PS140) [227] I don't know.
Sidney (PS0SV) [228] That looks as if it's the thermostat setting.
Ethel (PS140) [229] All you can do, that that is to shut it off.
[230] Then it automatically will shoot out again.
Sidney (PS0SV) [231] Oh.
Ethel (PS140) [232] Anyway it will probably come on itself anyway, so
Sheila (PS141) [233] Are you sure that button will come out on its own?
[234] Are you sure that button will come out on its own?
Ethel (PS140) [235] Yes it does Sheila mm.
Sheila (PS141) [236] Mm. ...
Sidney (PS0SV) [237] Put that bulb back wherever you got it from.
Ethel (PS140) [238] Well I'll put that with it then.
[239] Put that with it eh and then he'll ...
Sidney (PS0SV) [240] [...] I need my glasses.
[241] By the looks of it it is that as I say a screw's keeping that thing on.
Ethel (PS140) [242] Can't you see to undo the screw?
Sidney (PS0SV) [243] No. ...
Sheila (PS141) [244] Well what about me doing it?
Ralph (PS142) [245] Don't worry about the screw.
Sheila (PS141) [246] It is a bit difficult it's like it's almost you want you want to get inside it at the back of it don't you?
[247] Now put that on there so that it's with the rest of it.
Sidney (PS0SV) [248] How's you, alright?
Ralph (PS142) [249] Knackered.
Sidney (PS0SV) [250] Oh.
[251] Bad as that is it?
[252] ... Why are you working hard?
Sheila (PS141) [253] Look Ralph erm if, if you don't mind me saying can you remember if you do this could you just give me a ring and say it's done, if not Sid come down in the morning.
[254] Alright?
[255] I mean you got to get yourself in there round the back tuck yourself in all your body.
[256] ... Cos we got to erm, you got a magazine [...]
Ethel (PS140) [257] He can see in the fridge but I can't, I can't.
Sheila (PS141) [258] You know but I mean when it comes to a screw and your, I mean we're talking about coming like this to undo the screw.
Ethel (PS140) [259] Yeah round the back.
Sheila (PS141) [260] You, you need somebody really to hold the erm
Ethel (PS140) [261] The mirror.
Sheila (PS141) [262] a mirror in the way, but you can't have your arms in it.
Ethel (PS140) [263] Perhaps you could prop up this little hand mirror that I've got in there.
Ralph (PS142) [264] Oh I'll do it don't [...]
Sheila (PS141) [265] Well make sure your little knob pops out won't you?
Sidney (PS0SV) [266] No there's a little, there's a little guard over the bulb you see.
[267] And it looks as if there's a screw you have to undo to get it off.
[268] Otherwise the, the little bulb is just a screw in affair.
Sheila (PS141) [269] Yeah but did you try and undo the screw to get the bu , the whatsit off?
Sidney (PS0SV) [270] No no I can't see to undo the screw can I?
Sheila (PS141) [271] I mean if I put my best, give you my best glasses you'll widen them won't you?
Sidney (PS0SV) [272] Yeah, never mind.
Ralph (PS142) [273] Bit of a laugh last night.
[274] Phones gone and it's erm Mr .

[278] Oh that's alright then he says.
Sheila (PS141) [279] What, where you are, round there?
Ralph (PS142) [280] No here.
Sheila (PS141) [281] Oh here.

Ralph (PS142) [291] locks.

[293] Can they do anything there?
Ethel (PS140) [294] No but that's faulty at the bottom and the key
Ralph (PS142) [295] They can smash them, that's all.
Ethel (PS140) [296] Mm.
[297] Always bash through the window and walk in couldn't they?
Sheila (PS141) [298] Well
Ethel (PS140) [299] They just don't like breaking glass do they?
Ralph (PS142) [300] They're not
Sheila (PS141) [301] Well actually on the television I don't know whether you've noticed when they start talking about burglaries and things like that the picture that comes on is Newlands Park you know.
[302] At the moment this is a dreadful area.
[303] I mean there's been one or two incidents just lately
Ethel (PS140) [304] Mm.
Sheila (PS141) [305] that are mind boggling really.
Ethel (PS140) [306] Yes.
Sheila (PS141) [307] About a boy going in and asking
Ethel (PS140) [308] But then
Sheila (PS141) [309] if he could borrow a screwdriver on the end of our little shops there.
Ethel (PS140) [310] Yes.
Sheila (PS141) [311] And then he goes, then the bloke, the, give him, he said I'll, I'll you know I'll bring it back.
[312] And it's a family that's well known as a bit you know Geordies and that and a couple of rottweilers.
[313] He goes a little bit further down the road.
[314] There's a nurse is in bed and the next thing the nurse wakes up to find him at the bottom of the bed.
Ethel (PS140) [315] Mm.
Sheila (PS141) [316] He's got in trying to do a little bit of burglary you see.
Ethel (PS140) [317] Yes.

Ethel (PS140) [320] No, no.
[321] ... Oh they're up to all bloody tricks [...]
Sheila (PS141) [322] I wish I had a [...] truncheon I'd love to bash one round the head.
Ethel (PS140) [323] I mean you can see that bloke stopping cos he saw this poor girl lying in the road.
[324] Looked as though she was bleeding.
[325] He [...]
Sheila (PS141) [326] Tomato ketchup.
Ethel (PS140) [327] he'd gone out to help her.
[328] The next minute three blokes come from nowhere and bash him up take his money and drive off in his car and take the girl.
[329] She gets up off the ground.
[330] She's helping out.
Sheila (PS141) [331] Little bit of tomato ketchup I suppose.
Ethel (PS140) [332] Dear oh dear oh dear what what [...] think of.
Sheila (PS141) [333] Yeah but you see you, you, you really do not ... think that somebody is going to do that.
[334] I mean if you saw a girl laying, alright so you'd have to pick her up, put her in your car and take her to
Ethel (PS140) [335] [...] think she's been injured don't you and get out and help.
[336] ... If somebody bonks you on the
Sheila (PS141) [337] And it's gonna get worse if this situation of er you know erm jobs and that is gonna go on for another two years.

[351] And then he said I'm always here and I don't know whether he's supposed to come down or what it is but as I said to him it's a load of codswallop.
[352] You might just as well have put the phone down.

Sheila (PS141) [355] Yeah well you see this is how they find out who's in the places.
Ethel (PS140) [356] Yes.
Sheila (PS141) [357] This is all
Ethel (PS140) [358] Yeah, a load of codswallop.
Sheila (PS141) [359] Yeah but you don't know whether it's not er people phoning up to find out who's there and whether he's there and all to do with burglaries and things.
[360] You don't know they're all
Ethel (PS140) [361] Yes, yes.
[362] I had a letter.
[363] I don't, I can't remember now who it was from but I'd been er picked out and given a valuable prize.

[369] She said it it's a sprat to catch a mackerel.
[370] They get you to go in for something and then it costs you money.
[371] Of course it does they're not doing that for nothing.
[372] ... If I've had one I've had a dozen.
[373] [...] basement doors.
Sheila (PS141) [374] [...] .

[378] See I mean ... it's all paper that
Ethel (PS140) [379] What's [...] .
Sheila (PS141) [380] get sacks and put them all in get them all recycled.
Ralph (PS142) [...]
Ethel (PS140) [381] He he he must have asked for Mr .
[382] Well my name in the directory is just E.
[383] They don't know whether
Sidney (PS0SV) [384] No, [...]
Ethel (PS140) [385] it's male or female you see.
Sheila (PS141) [386] And anyway he's got to pretend that he's the man of the house so in case they think you're on your own.
Sidney (PS0SV) [387] Well he is the man of the house, let's face it.
Sheila (PS141) [388] Sort of, sort of is.
[389] Cock of the walk. [laugh]
Ralph (PS142) [390] [...] have a chat to him about what you could do I said don't worry I said.
[391] All, all my windows have got locks on and I said I'm about six foot four and anyone gets in here I'll kill them. [laugh]
Sheila (PS141) [392] But you see you don't know who they are do you that's saying all this?
Ethel (PS140) [393] Course you don't.
[394] These people come [...]
Sheila (PS141) [395] You mustn't give anything away.
Ethel (PS140) [396] all sorts.
[397] The times a poor old lady's been raped and robbed in, they've got to inspect all the gas pipes or they've got to inspect something or the other.
[398] And the old lady thinks it's all genuine.
[399] And what happens
Sheila (PS141) [400] Well round near us ... they terrorized an eighty three year old lady er near us and er it was a, I met the man next door and his wife and they were the ones that got the police because he said they'd got her furniture out on the pavement to to with a doodah up there.
Ethel (PS140) [401] Yes.
Sheila (PS141) [402] They'd got her absolutely terrified I mean she, she could have dropped dead with sheer terror.
[403] Knock at her door you see and in they go.
[404] Television, you name it.
Ethel (PS140) [405] Yeah.
[406] ... [...] almost had her car pinched now.
Ralph (PS142) [407] Who?
Ethel (PS140) [408] Paula.
Sidney (PS0SV) [409] Yeah Paula mm.
Ethel (PS140) [...]
Sheila (PS141) [410] [...] and she had er hand put through the back and er all the glass shattered.
[411] Erm and they pinched her bag at the back with all her titbits and that in [...] .
[412] And er Paula ran after him, all down an alleyway.
[413] I mean she said it's an instant thing when someone's got a handbag you realise afterwards.
[414] I mean she'd have been knocked over, I mean I know she's pretty swift.
[415] But er she said I suppose when I think about it it was an instant reaction you see.
[416] Gerry had seen his face and they got to go and look at the mug shots and all that and er longlegs had been informed across the road because they'd got er a camera that works and er they got in touch with the, they told the police about it and so they're going over there to see if it's been recorded you see.
[417] You know like him actually doing it.
Ethel (PS140) [418] All the, I think most building societies and that, banks, have an automatic camera going somewhere.
[419] They photograph everybody that comes in and out.
[420] I mean if you're genuine it just doesn't matter does it?
Sheila (PS141) [421] Well like there's a lady coming round tonight [...]

2 (Tape 006202)

Sheila (PS141) [422] Now does that mean she's, she's instead of Thelma?
Edith (PS143) [423] Yes, Thelma's on holiday.
Sheila (PS141) [424] Oh.
[425] She seemed nice
Edith (PS143) [426] that's she's, that's a different one to one that came yesterday.
[427] I suppose they've got two.
Sheila (PS141) [428] They been coming round every day just to see you're okey dokey
Edith (PS143) [429] Yes.
Sheila (PS141) [430] Oh.
Edith (PS143) [431] Thelma didn't always bother every day because she knows that Ralph is here you see.
Sheila (PS141) [432] Yeah.
Edith (PS143) [433] but er the new one she wouldn't know.
Sheila (PS141) [434] It's jolly good isn't it really?
Edith (PS143) [435] She just got a, just got a list of erm those
Sheila (PS141) [436] I think it's cos of them, well I mean
Edith (PS143) [437] She said, about next door, cos I just said to her it's private it's been bought.
[438] And it's only a young couple in there.
[439] Which really isn't right cos they weren't meant for young couples.
[440] But of course she told me that when they came there they were there to look after the place so that it wasn't taken over, you know by anybody else, but she had a washing machine, the washing machine come in just after.
[441] And I should, well it struck me that they were there for good and all.
Sheila (PS141) [442] I suppose if it's theirs perhaps they can't do anything about it.
Edith (PS143) [443] What erm, I don't know whether it's theirs but Bab's son David bought it.
Sheila (PS141) [444] Yeah.
Edith (PS143) [445] You see David bought it and put these people in there.
Sheila (PS141) [446] Funny isn't it really?
Edith (PS143) [447] But they're.
[448] Yeah, rent it.
[449] I suppose [...]
Sheila (PS141) [450] It might be for a certain amount of time while they do so and so and then, what can he do?
[451] He can, he can sell it to the ... council [...]
Edith (PS143) [452] Well he can sell it to
Sheila (PS141) [453] erm back to the council.
Edith (PS143) [454] They used to at one, when it was first brought out, you had to sell it back within a number of years.
[455] You had to sell it back to the council.
[456] Because it was always meant for pensioners you see.
Sheila (PS141) [457] Yes.
[458] Well he could do that.
[459] I mean that would be easy for him.
Edith (PS143) [460] Yes.
Sheila (PS141) [461] He really probably shouldn't have anybody in there.
[462] Sort of.
Edith (PS143) [463] Mind you, I don't think they're married either of them because she comes under the name Miss ... and well her name's Estelle and he's Paul, but she's known as because I've had two or three people ask me about her because she, she deals in insurance.
[464] And they're away quite a lot.
[465] The other day when we had a very hot day, it was quite a hot day ... and [...] over mid day I went out to do something in the garden there and her milk was still on the step and it was in the sun.
[466] And it was absolutely hot.
[467] So I moved it to the other side of the step.
[468] And later when I saw Paul, I said Paul if you go away for the weekend, if you tell me, I can put your milk in my fridge.
[469] And at night time if you're not back I'll, I'll leave it in your cupboard, you'll know where it is.
[470] Oh he said that's very kind of you, that's very nice.
[471] Only I said ... it's an open invitation when it's left on the doorstep you see.
Sheila (PS141) [472] Absolutely.
[473] And it's all going off isn't it, there's nothing worse than a
Edith (PS143) [474] And the silly part of it is ... the milkman always puts it that side where you open the door, instead of this side.
[475] You can come in and out and kick the damn lot over couldn't you?
Sheila (PS141) [476] Oh well.
[477] Absolutely, well they haven't got any brains have they?
Edith (PS143) [478] I noticed it yesterday on that side.
[479] I thought to myself well why the devil doesn't he put it over the other side.
[480] ... But she always puts her empty bottles that side so I suppose that's why.
[481] ... And they're, they're very nice young couple although I very very seldom see them.
[482] Very seldom see them.
[483] ... I did say to him once that er I said if you don't want that ivy I said you chuck it out, chop it down and throw it over my side cos it's my responsibility
Sheila (PS141) [484] You are responsible [...]
Edith (PS143) [485] And he said well he don't mind but it's growing, it's grown right along the wall, right under their step.
[486] Like that.
[487] Over the fence.
[488] [...] the lawn.
Sheila (PS141) [489] I can remember when you cut that.
Edith (PS143) [490] It's grown all over the garden.
[491] Cos they've only got paving, crazy paving.
[492] It's gone up the wall over the top
Sheila (PS141) [493] It all comes through don't it?
Edith (PS143) [494] I never knew anything could grow that quick.
Sheila (PS141) [495] What d'you do?
[496] Just cut a bit off and get it whiskers and it's off?
Ralph (PS142) [497] Slipping up here.
Edith (PS143) [498] When I first had it Sheila [...]
Ralph (PS142) [499] I'm leaving a bit in [...] Christ. [...]
Sheila (PS141) [500] Supposing I wanted a bit, do you put it in a thing and get some whiskers and then just plant it later?
Edith (PS143) [501] Yes, just, that's all.
[502] All it wants.
[503] Only it was very pretty when I first bought it.
[504] It was a little variegated ivy and I had it indoors, in the hall.
[505] And it began to look very sick and sorry for itself.
Sheila (PS141) [506] Was it when you were round the corner?
Edith (PS143) [507] Yeah when I was round ... forty three [...] .
[508] And I took it out in the spring and put it in the garden and then it revived and came on nice.
[509] But Bob said to me where I bought it from, he said I don't think it would survive the winter because it comes from the Scilly Isles which is warmer.
[510] So I dug it up and brought it indoors again.
[511] It was alright for a few weeks and then it began to look very anaemic and sorry for itself.
[512] So later on I put it out in the garden again.
[513] And it grew and started to thrive.
[514] I though oh bugger it I'm not bringing it any more it's getting too big.
[515] It's got two chances either it lives or it dies, and it started to grow like mad.
[516] Before long I had a bloody [...]
Sheila (PS141) [517] You'll having going down the bottom of the road here in a minute.
[518] It'll go down the road later on.
Edith (PS143) [519] And er I brought one or two pieces with me and stuck in there.
[520] I mean it was only a narrow bit of earth like that.
[521] I put erm two or three pieces of aubretia in there.
[522] And I stuck this bit of ivy in hoping it would grow over the fence.
[523] You, you have a look Sheila over next door.
[524] ... Is it still bolted.
[525] Down the bottom.
[526] ... Push the door back hard.
Sidney (PS0SV) [527] Let's have a look.
[528] Oh.
Edith (PS143) [529] Push the door back dear.
Sheila (PS141) [530] I've got it back.
[531] I can't do it.
[532] I'm not gonna, I'm not gonna ... leave my finger in it.
[533] Yeah a little bit of oil there you need.
[534] [...] made her quite funny.
Edith (PS143) [535] [...] the door is, is.
[536] It comes back easy enough.
Sidney (PS0SV) [537] Here let's have a go [...] .
Ralph (PS142) [538] No it won't move.
[539] Put a hammer on it.
Edith (PS143) [540] If I lean on the door, push me weight on the door.
Sheila (PS141) [541] [...] pushed it as far as it will go.
[542] ... [hammering] Touch of the old oil bit of vaseline or something.
Edith (PS143) [543] No you don't want too much oil in it [...] .
Sidney (PS0SV) [...]
Sheila (PS141) [544] Well if Ralph and Sid can't do it [...]
Sidney (PS0SV) [545] Yeah well.
[546] You'll have to forego your look at the ivy.
Edith (PS143) [547] You had erm.
[548] You had a job to open last night didn't you Ralph?
[549] Or close it?
Ralph (PS142) [550] Yeah.
[551] Don't try it yet mother.
Sidney (PS0SV) [552] Leave it mother, leave it.
Sheila (PS141) [553] If you caught your skin in there
Sidney (PS0SV) [554] Mother .
[555] You'll break your back.
[556] Ralph and I can't do it so you bloody can't.
[557] ... That's it now put your foot right through the window.
[558] Look I just did that.
Sheila (PS141) [559] You be careful.
Ralph (PS142) [560] Leave it.
Sidney (PS0SV) [561] Come on.
Edith (PS143) [562] Well I, I've always managed to
Sidney (PS0SV) [563] Well your not gonna manage it today.
Sheila (PS141) [564] Yeah well we've all, we've all managed it.
[565] It's just gone a bit sticky like.
Sidney (PS0SV) [566] You've probably got a bit of damp in there.
Edith (PS143) [567] How we gonna feed the birds?
[568] Poor little sods. [laugh]
Ralph (PS142) [569] Through the window, like they normally have it.
Sheila (PS141) [570] Have you got a tiny, one drop of oil?
[571] One drop, go on Sid'll put one drop on.
[572] No?
Ralph (PS142) [573] No don't worry I'll, I'll fix it
Sheila (PS141) [574] Tiny bit of vaseline
Edith (PS143) [575] [...] oilcan .
[576] All it wants is just a slight tap with a hammer.
[577] That'll get it back. [...]
Ralph (PS142) [578] Yeah.
Sheila (PS141) [579] That, that's it isn't it.
Edith (PS143) [580] It always seems you have to bolt the door first before you can turn the key.
[581] If you turn the key first it's always a bit difficult to bolt it.
Sheila (PS141) [582] Oh.
Edith (PS143) [583] Well that's how I always did it but Ralph usually does it now.
[584] But I noticed last night you had a bit of a job to ... to er
Ralph (PS142) [585] poxy carpet [...]
Sheila (PS141) [586] Oh I know why .
[587] It's got the carpet in it.
Ralph (PS142) [588] Yeah, it's all the poxy carpet's in it.
Sheila (PS141) [589] There y'are. look.
Edith (PS143) [590] Oh.
Sheila (PS141) [591] Oh, there y'are!
Edith (PS143) [592] That's why.
Sheila (PS141) [593] And it's no good us having
Sidney (PS0SV) [594] So it's Ralph's fault then after all.
Edith (PS143) [595] We'll see to it later on.
Ralph (PS142) [596] [...] poxy carpet all the draught is through the keyhole
Sheila (PS141) [597] And the point is .
Ralph (PS142) [598] and under the door.
Sheila (PS141) [599] And it's no good actually, it's not good pulling it like that and pulling it away because it'll still be there.
[600] So some how or other you've got put little bit of oil or something on it.
[601] Even a bit of fairy liquid might help.
Edith (PS143) [602] Yes.
[603] Yes I suppose it might.
Sidney (PS0SV) [604] No you're probably just need a little whatsname.
Edith (PS143) [605] The only other oil I've got is cooking oil.
Sidney (PS0SV) [606] [...] little hammer.
Edith (PS143) [607] Careful Sheila.
[608] That comes out quickly.
Sheila (PS141) [609] I'm not even gonna squeeze it.
Ralph (PS142) [610] Leave it Sheila, I'll do it in a minute.
[611] ... She might have it up there but I've got it up there.
Sheila (PS141) [612] Here y'are.
[613] Only, that takes a touch of the old [...] .
Ralph (PS142) [614] Really, remember your age.
Sheila (PS141) [615] Mm.
[616] Just a minute.
[617] Let's get the old doofers there. ...
Ralph (PS142) [618] Draughts we've got running through the doors, through the keyholes
Edith (PS143) [619] I don't like getting rid of that that thin carpet right underneath.
[620] That belonged to, my mother made that.
Sidney (PS0SV) [621] Yes.
Edith (PS143) [622] Get [...] big one underneath.
Sheila (PS141) [623] Yes.
[624] ... Oh dear.
Sidney (PS0SV) [625] There's no wearing those old, homemade ones out is there?
[626] They last a lifetime.
Edith (PS143) [627] Oh you're telling me.
[628] She made that ... before the war.
Sidney (PS0SV) [629] Well, we've got a couple that we made in the fifties.
Edith (PS143) [...]
Sheila (PS141) [630] That pinky, one with a bit of pink and the beige and the, whatever, good lord that's the first thing we made.
Edith (PS143) [631] Did you [...] ?
[632] Did you, Sheila.
[633] Did you fancy a piece of that ivy then?
Sheila (PS141) [634] Oh yes I'll have a bit of the ivy.
[635] I'll have it to, [...]
Edith (PS143) [636] Mm?
Sheila (PS141) [637] What do I do with it first of all?
[638] Put it in get whiskers?
Edith (PS143) [639] erm.
[640] I just stuck it in the ground I think.
Sheila (PS141) [641] Oh. [...]
Edith (PS143) [642] Oh.
Sheila (PS141) [643] Oh yeah.
Edith (PS143) [644] [...] during the day.
Sheila (PS141) [645] I want a nice shiny bit.
[646] You know what I mean?
Edith (PS143) [647] Yes.
Ralph (PS142) [648] [...] ... [...] he said what's happened, I said oh well, well I've been [...] .
[649] He started moaning [...] load of old balls.
Sidney (PS0SV) [650] Load of balls yeah.
Ralph (PS142) [651] Anyway [...]
Sidney (PS0SV) [652] And that's a security firm you say is it, eh?
Ralph (PS142) [653] Yeah this is a security firm.
Sidney (PS0SV) [654] Yeah.
Ralph (PS142) [655] I said don't worry about it.

Sheila (PS141) [674] I think I might have.
Edith (PS143) [675] And keep it moist, keep it watered.
[676] Before you know where you are look.
[677] I've been here nine years in August and I've cut no end of it down.
Sheila (PS141) [678] Well I suppose these roots will start.
[679] What do I do, shall I take those bits off there? [...]
Sidney (PS0SV) [680] Take the bottom roots off I should say.
Edith (PS143) [681] Take the few bottom roots off right , bottom leaves.
Sheila (PS141) [682] [...] down by the erm, down by the shed.
[683] [...] pot it in once I've got me boots.
Edith (PS143) [684] Well when you've got a fence or a shed or a garage to cover up.

[689] Oh we've got to get whiskers first.
[690] [...] got to get the whiskers first.

Edith (PS143) [699] Well yes.
Sheila (PS141) [700] No only they look so nice and shiny and
Edith (PS143) [701] Yes it is shiny.
Sheila (PS141) [702] Yes.
Edith (PS143) [703] But when I first bought it, they were all tiny leaves and all variegated.
