    I have lived all my life in Ipswich, Suffolk. It's so flat, boring and quiet. But it's rural (and drier than the rest of England!) so I can't complain. Just wish I lived in Bury or somewhere on the coast. Bury has an amazing town centre - Ipswich is such a dump! Then there's Southwold and Walberswick and all those lovely places.

    I whistled for a cab and when it came near, the license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror, if anything I can say is that this cab was rare, but I thought 'Man forget it' - 'Yo homes to Bel-Air'!

    what a legend haha!

    I grew up in the Upper Clapton area mostly but my mum's friend (Professor Green's nan to be exact ) had a daughter who lived in Ilford, so I used to go there every now and then to visit her children as they where the same age as me and to play. Those where the days
    ahh awesome, just curious what's professor green like? i know he is quite close to nan, and i'm fan of his music, especially his earlier stuff. lol *nosey*

    His whole family that I met (including him) where all really lovely to me and my mum. He is 10 years older than me, so I would play with his cousins and his bro and sister when I would visit them, in Clapton and Essex. Basically, my mum was really good friends with his nan, because his nan worked for our landlady (who is our relative), and she introduced us to her because she had grandchildren my age and we where new to the country (we came to London when I was 4 from Sweden). I remember Stephen (as he was known back then ) as being more into rock music, he was really good at skateboarding and rollerblading too. I remember thinking he was really cool I used to visit his nan's house in Clapton (where he lived) maybe 3 times a week from the ages of 4 to about 9. I even slept over a few times when my mum had to go out of London overnight. And I used to call his nan Aunt They where all really generous, me and my mum where quite poor at the time to be honest, and his nan threw me a big birthday party when I turned six at her house, and bought me presents, a cake, and lots of party food. His mum was also really nice, as where her other children. We drifted out of contact with them when we moved out of the area when I was about 9, and I had no idea he had become Professor Green until recently. I was in shock :eek: just because I had no idea that I had known Professor Green and his family! Pretty strange really. But he deserves all his success, he went through a lot of stuff and it's great to see he's been so successful

    Yep it's a nice little park, as is Clissold I haven't been there in years tbh though, I live on the other side of London now, and I should be going all the way up to Sunderland for Uni I'll miss knowing that I'm still not too far from the place I was raised, but I think it's probably time I lived somewhere outside of London
