Sat, 01 Oct 2016 18:19:30 +0100Anyone?
Sat, 01 Oct 2016 16:45:57 +0100That's a kind thought, thankyou, and I'll wish you the very best of luck also. I joined the Postcode Lottery, and so if any of my neighbours are also in it and our code comes up lucky we'll be having the greatest street party of all time. Bryan Ferry will be invited to join us for cheese sandwich, and you shall lead the singing and letting of the party poppers. I expect to win any time soon within the next 35 years, so get that sparkly dress ready!
Sat, 01 Oct 2016 16:33:47 +0100Finally jumped into life just before 16.00. They were supposed to be sending updates, and I was optimistic , trusting even.
Sat, 01 Oct 2016 12:47:48 +0100So I have got a response now from the practice patients manager Liz Sulivan at Princess ST;
Sat, 01 Oct 2016 12:45:36 +0100Not so (according to the bar staff at the pub on their last Sunday).
Sat, 01 Oct 2016 12:09:44 +0100My Internet has not returned only tv and phone not happy with virgin.
Sat, 01 Oct 2016 11:42:02 +0100Mines been down since last night
Sat, 01 Oct 2016 11:13:08 +0100Ours was out too, but restarting the router fixed it this morning.
Sat, 01 Oct 2016 11:05:11 +0100Yeah they told us that too. TV and landlines just came back.
Sat, 01 Oct 2016 11:04:55 +0100Mines just come back on! Not impressed with them lately. Negotiated a new contract then 6 weeks later they put the price up :(
Sat, 01 Oct 2016 10:32:08 +0100Borough Bloke -I agree there is one member of staff in particular but my experiences that started this thread involved she and one another ( that I had not met before) So it's more than one ( though that one we refer is the epicentre I'd say) Behaviours positive or negative rub off - though equally I agree that most of the staff/Doctors are fine
Sat, 01 Oct 2016 10:21:16 +0100Yes, they are saying should be fixed today by 11.55
Sat, 01 Oct 2016 10:03:23 +0100Thank you everyone for their kind thoughts, I shall be ordering Manzes asap from my new abode! Mind you the pulled pork baguette or the porteno steak sandwich from Borough Market sounds delicious....humm home delivery? Lol
Sat, 01 Oct 2016 09:41:14 +0100Have had no Internet connection since 11pm last night? Virgin have said this is all over se1 and will be ongoing for a few more hours? Anyone else experiencing this?
Sat, 01 Oct 2016 07:53:44 +0100The service I receive generally is great. I have absolutely no doubt that almost all of the negativity in this thread is referring a single individual. As someone noted "I could pick that harridan from a line up". The incidents referred to are predictable and repeated. I've been on the receiving end. I have seen others on the receiving end of the exact same behaviour. It only ever emanates from one person. My last run in with her was on the phone.
Sat, 01 Oct 2016 00:40:16 +0100Alas, it seems the Goldsmiths have closed for good - they are part of the whole kit and caboodle of the fire station - same landlord apparently. I hope it is just hearsay because it would be a shame to see another pub bite the dust.
Sat, 01 Oct 2016 00:28:41 +0100Squatters have now moved in. Fingers crossed they are respectful and quiet.
Fri, 30 Sep 2016 23:17:41 +0100i wish everyone well and good luck for the future. Its been interesting the discussions on here about various situations. Neighbourhoods, foods and situations as well..I think we just have to try and make the best of our situations until there is some resolution. Its hard and not so easy but is what it is i guess for all of us...Lets all do the lottery and see what comes. You never know. one of us has surely got to win it one day...
Fri, 30 Sep 2016 23:14:26 +0100We have troublesome neighbour below with mental health issues but he has caused a lot of trouble and he also knows what he is doing and is aware of how far he can push things as well which at times does question his mental health, we also have neighbours living opposite us with mental health issues. but they keep to themselves but I feel that social services just left them to get on with it, as she had a baby in the flat and dont think she had proper medical care, the baby was removed by ambulance. Some years later the social services decide to actually bother with them, I rang social services previously when they was struggling and social services came just once in like four years to check on this, this is the reality of the system. Now they have people coming to check on them. Good luck with everything. Luckily the guy below has learned now not to interfere with us anymore or cause any other trouble...We try to avoid him when we can...and hope he remains as he is doing now.
Fri, 30 Sep 2016 22:28:31 +0100Not good news I'm afraid, but the City of London have said that the work will be taking place 24x7: http://www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/services/transport-and-streets/roads-highways-and-pavements/Pages/Tower-Bridge-closure.aspx

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 18:49:06 +0100I want to get a Philips electric razor repaired. Does anyone know of a repairer in SE1 please?
Fri, 30 Sep 2016 18:28:49 +0100wait until the night tube helps toss out more walking east in search of buses ...
Fri, 30 Sep 2016 18:26:32 +0100as the city of london own it, run it and are the local authority, i suspect there are no restrictions as with last time ... however, i am only too happy to be proved wrong.
Fri, 30 Sep 2016 18:24:25 +0100Last night at around 2am there was lengthy loud noise from the workmen dismantling structures on Tower Bridge. That specific work has now finished but it sets me wondering what we are to expect over the next 3 months. Does anyone know what restrictions on working hours are in place for this project ?
Fri, 30 Sep 2016 18:06:22 +0100I used to live in Sumner Buildings as a child, many years ago. Numbers 8 and 88. I found out recently that the estate was built on the site of a vinegar distillery and the land was owned by the Bishops of Winchester. The street was named after one.
Fri, 30 Sep 2016 17:54:00 +0100There was a family called Martin in the area in the 70s, they had a newsagents in Webber st, one of my greatest memories is getting caught stealing penny chew and the Mr Martin doing a job on me, phone in hand "yes officer I've got him here" I was bawling lol, I never stole again.

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 17:34:02 +0100Sounds like you're a 'pro', Silwood!
Fri, 30 Sep 2016 17:26:26 +0100Heartbreaking...how hard life was...
