When something went wrong my Dad's usual saying was "I'm off to the pub, you sort it out" :wink:

Hi Postie
Yeah I knew kerry but not very well
back to the topic our mum was Irish as well and if anyone was moaning about having to do something she used to say " just keep going till you're exhausted then go to sleep and give us all a rest "

My dad used to say "gawd stipe me pink "

na me mom would say " he will one day" .
 
`up the wooden hill` our Dad sent us to bed each night with these words.
And if our Mom wasnt in the house, and we asked where she was he would answer, `shes gone off with the bogey man` :( Jackie

Where have you been?

:D "To see a man about a dog, but he only had a goat."

"there and back to see how far it was"
"...but it wern't far enough so I'm gooin again"

Dad also said "Strike a light" If he was surprised about somthing.

Where's Mom/Dad ? "Gone to catch a cold"

Alberta, I still go all around the Wrekin looking for things.

Do any of you use the word 'Beins' ? eg;" Beins it's still light you can stay up a while longer", " Beins I've got five bob you can go to the flicks". I use this word a lot and my kids have picked it up too, but never relised untill one of Angela's boyfriends pointed out he'd never heard it used before.
