It took us 10 months to do that house up , it was a total rip out ! I bought the house from a friend of mine , it was her grandparents house , we restored that house back to it's former glory , even bringing in specialists who renovated grade 11 listed buildings and churches , a few weeks after we moved in , we had numerous visits from council officials , saying they had had reports from people about the sand leaving a stain on the road , not the pavement the road , we got in a road tarmac firm to re-tarmac and cover the small sand stain . Then we had more , they wanted to see my planing permission , for inside and out .. We met all of their requirements ..
    My daughter was born in Formby Street , in 1997 , not one person asked me what i had had , not ONE person let on to me .. Furthermore , a young Mum had passed away , she lived a few doors down , nobody said a word , a friggin year later i found out by accident ! That street is full of tuppence ha'penny toffs with dirty nets .. Don't talk to me about bleedin Formby .........

    My best friend in Formby street was an elderly woman called Mrs carr , she was born there , and she told me how much it had changed , the problem with some of the scousers is this , once that removal van gets up the bypass , they have a brain transplant , and start trying to talk different , they ignore each other , like they are ashamed to say where they are from .. Well i am sorry , but that's not me , i am ME i have always been me , and i won't change for anyone .. Like i said , my friends were elderly genuine people .. I also worked for Mill Hill fathers at Herbert House on Victoria road for three years ..
    Formby has no community anymore , people don't care about each other , AND they are carrying on with each others husbands .. Phoney lot all of them !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    P.S. Trampshipman , no dis respect at all is meant to you in my reply .
    Is this your song?



    Here we come, walking down the street
    We give the funniest looks to everyone we meet.

    Hey, hey, we're from formby
    And people say we're bonking around,
    and we're too busy swinging
    and putting everybody down.

    You know that we want to
    Do what we like to do,
    all the time trying not be helpful
    around anyone who's new

    The best description I've ever come across for the "upwardly mobile" was this:
    Town dwellers = Urban Settlers
    Suburbanites = SuburbanHomeInvestmentTypes
