I was living in London near Portobello, we used to have folks back to the house or go to another house , like old Pops ( a former boxer Jamaican) , who enjoyed party time. Records on and a bit of a dance etc :cheers:

Back in the olden days.

Oh, best times ever was the anticipation before going out..in younger days.

Well, when I lived near Portobello back before it was gentrified, we had a local pub, always someone having party time. Old Pops who used to be a boxer from Jamaica or us who invited invited all sorts in. My late friend from Malaysia who played good guitar, always a party when he was around. We were a bit naught, Police were called to our parties a couple of times :oops:

I lived quite an exciting life from my early teens. By the time I moved to London, same area but before you, I found the High St Ken/Portabello/Notting Hill "scene" somewhat wearisome. There were many nights when I prayed to be left alone.

I don't miss it tbh - perhaps I've always been boring? :dunno:
