When I grew up in Bermondsey in the 70’s I thought Woolwich was posh… then we moved there…. Soon realised I was very wrong!!!

We went to a party at a friend of QotJ's house in Sanderstead back in the summer. It was a very nice house in a rather nice, leafy location. I was speaking to the friend and commented about the nice location, she replied "yes it's lovely here, and I can walk into Croydon town centre"... My jaw sort of dropped and before I could regain control of my brain I spurted out "why on earth would you want to do that??!". She looked a bit affronted and said "I'm a Croydon girl". I swear I've never heard anyone proud of the fact that they come from Croydon. Its like some kind of futuristic nightmare.
