hiya all. i remember coming to "the milk" from the gallowgate when i was about 5. we used to stay in the sarry heid buildings, where the wifies would watch the weans playing while sitting on sentry duty at each end of the back to keep anybody that didni belang there oot. watching all the drunks coming oot the sarry heid and going ower tae the barras fur the jigging. anyway we moved upto castlemilk and landed in downcraig road number 39. i went to netherton primary, old mrs kirkland the headie, the old witch. we used to cut through the woods at the side of st maggys to cross the carmunnock rd to get to school, if you were brave enough to not get caught by old skelly eyes. (the bogey man) i remember when they were building the "new houses" at ardencraig crescent, that was a big playground for the weans, and some adults. after downcraig we went to glenacre drive, then onto glenwood secondary, where they succeeded in making me even mare stupider, still it kept them happy. dogging it to go swimming helped take the edge off it but, in the front gate and oot the back gate and up the ressys fur a swim, get a number 14 bus ootside the school up tae the terminus cut through the farm to carmunnock and up the lane towards east kilbride and into the reserviors for s swim . great fun. another trip fur swimming was waterfoot, that was like the canterbury tales when we done that trip. andersons hole in busby was quite good annaw. we left the milk and moved to e.k., then i moved doon to london where ive been for 28 years.

Auchenshuggle i'm intrigued, i'd love to know who you are. I lived at 39 Downcraig Rd in the 60's and early 70's and i can remember almost all the people up the close. On the top floor was Sandra and Lynne cummings and opposite was Alan,Evelyn and Stephen Smith. Next floor down was more Smiths, Gordon, Ian and twins Christine and Jeanette. Opp them was (i think) an old man McGinty who chopped sticks on the landing for firewood. Next down was Alan, Ann and Carole McKechnie and opp them was (i think) Robert Hart,and on the ground floor was Alan and Brian McClune and opp them for a time was the more twins, Steven and Anthony Brannan. I went to Netherton and i remember Miss Kirkland, if she was teaching today she'd get done for child abuse She was terrifying. I don't remember her being head while i was there though , our headie was Mr Nichol.

Good to have a read of this thread and the memories of Castlemilk.
I remember the shops at Machrie well too, you had to go to Saunders shop to get a school tie.
I was brought up in Tormusk Road, went to Braeside then Glenwood.
I had friends from Machrie Joy Black lived in the T close right across the road from the shops, also was friends with karoline Gibson she was from machrie Drive, still in touch with both of them.
Lynn Flemming lived above me and I have also managed to get in touch with her too.
My older brother John (Wilkie) was two years above me at school.
I have three sisters Janette, Grace and Norma, two brothers Charles and John anyone remember us? smile.gif

Hi Ian I'm laughing at the cooking chocolate!! I remember you . I remember your sisters better as they were more my age . Yes Kirkland was a right old witch, seriously scary to a five yr old. She would have been maybe 50 at the time but to me she was more like 80. No teacher today would be allowed to terrorise the kids the way she did, and that was without using corporal punishment. I can also remember going to Waterfoot, a big gang of us, with a bottle of ginger and some jam pieces. Also went to school the same route as you thru the woods and then thru the little gap in the bushes and running down to cross Carmunnock Road. I remember playing in the grounds of Maggie Mary's, sledging down the big hill next to the woods, going up the Cathkin Braes in the summer hols when there was different shows on everyday for the kids. Do you remember thr old guy chopping sticks on the landing? I think he was called McGinty. I went to Glenwood too, for a year, then we moved away from Glasgow and i have a very good memory from my time there but, try as i might, i can't remember another school called the Grange. Maybe my memory's playing tricks.

Hi I don't know Sandra's dads name but her mum was called Cathy. Sandra did have reddish hair and i remember her nickname was Lulu as she looked like her. There was also Lynn a few years younger than Sandra and i think there was an older daughter who was married and away from home when i lived there. I could be wrong on that tho.

Thanks bluezcat, your right, I recollect it was Cathy, her man's name was Jimmy. Sandra was a lovely kid, obviously Lynn would have been born after my visit. They came from Kidston Street, Jimmy was a friend of my then husband ,now deceased. Sounds like Jimmy and Cathy have passed on as the children were still residing together.
Can remember Cathy being over the moon withy her new house. How the years slip by! smile.gif
