My Mum is from Manchester Allan....... :-)

Small world lol

Allan

Allan Report 14 Nov 2011 22:25

It is indeed, Mersey,

I came out to Australia with OH and our two children in 1982. I actually left Manchester in 1975 when I got a job in Grimsby.

Manchester would have changed enormously since then!

Mersey

Mersey Report 14 Nov 2011 22:33

Its certainly changed now.... !!

I have spent alot of time in Manchester recently, I went back to my where my Grandparents lived and I did not recognise the place which was such a shame........

The weather certainly hasn't changed :-)

Allan

Allan Report 14 Nov 2011 22:38

lol Mersey

Whereabouts in Manchester did your grandparents' live.?
I lived initially in Rusholme and then Longsight

Mersey

Mersey Report 14 Nov 2011 22:41

Mainly in Cheadle area, but then spread out around Bury, Heywood and Wythenshawe.....

Was more rural when I was a whippersnapper lol

Do you still have your Manc accent ? ;-)

Allan

Allan Report 14 Nov 2011 22:49

Yep, even after almost 30 years in Australia :-)

I used to know Bury and Heywood quite well. I once worked for the then Middleton Council. My OH was born in Oldham and then lived in Middleton, which is where we met

lol Mersey.

Accents are funny things. When we first arrived in WA in 1982 I got a job in the Northern Goldfields about 900 kms from Perth. My son was six and my daughter was two. When the talked with us they had a Northern accent, but when they played with the Aussie kids they spoke with an Australian accent. They seem to have evened their accents out over the years
