  1. I often use tapatalk to log in on my mobile devices . It wasn't keen and I had to reset passwords etc. I'll now spend some time figuring out how to use the site again. I'm sure it'll all fall into place as we go along
  2. Talking of keeping secrets . When my mum died in 2008 we were clearing out her house and found her metal box that she always kept locked. Dad had died in 1981 so she had been widowed 26 years. When we managed to prise open the box , we found in there their marriage certificate which states that my dad had been married before . Mum and dad married 1 Feb 1947, and it said dads marriage was dissolved the week before! Neither me or my brother had ever known he was married before and we were shocked to say the least . I spoke to my dads only surviving sister who was in her 90s who told us that whilst dad was at war in 1944 his wife of only a few months had been 'caught' with a civie. Dad came home a booted her out but never started divorce proceedings until he met mum. They were supposed to marry on January 25th but had to put the wedding back a week. I was amazed at such a story being kept secret . I can imagine my grandad being so cross having to rearrange everything for mums wedding(it was at the Elite in Nottm so not a small affair ) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. I had the misfortune to live in Ilkeston from late 2005 to 2011. Had only lived there 2 mth and someone let themselves in the front door took my car keys and drove off whilst I was sitting on the sofa. Saw my car drive in front of the window. Police never charged anyone and my 1 year old mini was found abandoned a week later in moor green reservoir . Couldn't wait to get out of Ilkeston . What a sh** hole Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. An old boyfriend of mine had a K reg (1972) mark 3 ford cortina 1600GT. He was only 17 at the time (1976)and had saved his pennies and bought it as his first car . It had 4x super cibie spotlights on the front which lit the town up when they were on. Great car but one day the electrics burnt out . My grandad was a retired auto electrician and showed him how to trace each wire and replace it with new wire and between them 're-wired' the whole car . Lasted until he sold it a couple of years later ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
