When someone had done something wrong and was going to be in trouble, mam would say 'he's for the high jump'

My Mam, when referring to somebody who was a creep or a crawler would call them 'A fornicating little bu99er'.

When I grew up I took evil delight in telling her that she probably meant 'fawning' and that the word she commonly used meant the same as a four-letter word beginning with the same letter.

She was devastated.

Savings clubs, people used to save so much a week for Christmas or other occasions. My mother in law called it a "Didlum".

Oh yes! The didlum! Haven`t thought about that for many years.

It was how our Mam saved up for our toys and the Christmas grub.

At the office in Raleigh I worked in, we had a didlum to save for something to buy, and a fuddle to save for a party or drinks.

As a nipper I was offered for breakfast a 'chookie egg' which came from a 'chookie fowl', not an egg from a chicken!

So was I, and I still collect the chookie eggs from the chookie hens in my back garden. I haven`t moved far maturity-wise have I?

I was always being told to "Pick your ble99y feet up" so one day I picked one of my feet up with both hands and said "Is that better?" .....Which was promptly followed by a clip round my ear and the words..."Dont be ble99y cheeky"...

Owdtite.
