Nice to hear from you again Chelsea.
I do hope your mother is not too ill and will soon be out of the hospital and you will be saved such torturous journeys.

I thought that DLR now ran to Lewisham is that not the case?
Safe journeys.

Thanks for all the good wishes, she does seem to be on the mend, however she is quite a youngster - 94 now - lol

Could have got the DLR - yet someone said it was a long hike from the station to the hospital - if that is not the case, then I will use that next time

Going home was fun, as when i arrived at Honor Oak Station, the trains were all messed up, so I had to get a train to London Bridge then the tube - oh fun - never mind, got home

Was thinking about my old school being in SE1 yet my mistake as I think it was in SE11 - beaufoy it was called in the old days, yet many of my friends lived in SE1, most in Blackfriars RD

We referred to your old school as Borough Beaufoy if you are speaking of the school in Black Prince Road, which is definitely in SE11, the postal district of Kennington.
I don't know where the postal boundary between SE! and SE11 is, it must be a mind-bogglingly irregular border because I had a friend who lived in Granby Buildings, off Black Prince Road and another friend who lived in Elliots Row at the Elephant/St. Georges Road and they both had SE11 as their postcodes.
I admire your strong attachment to SE1, Chelsea, and long may it continue.
Sorry ,I cannot help more with the DLR and Lewisham hospital journey.
