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 "
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.
