As a split-off from the rhyming slang thread, are there any family or local sayings that you use. I tried this on a different forum and was surprised to see how many were not local/family but nationwide, I've already mentioned Gran's 'blue pencil'. Now for:- "I'll go the the foot of our stairs" - "Well. I am surprised!" "Go and play with Roberts's kids" - "Get out of my sight" "It's worse than Carney's Lodging House in here" - "It's very noisy/untidy" I never did find out where the Roberts family lived nor the location of Carney's Lodging House".
