    Family Sayings

    Have you got any sayings that your parents used to say to you that you use / used with your children and that they now use with their kids now.

    One of ours is “pigs lay down after eating”. 🐖

          my mum used to make a sort of weather prediction. She would declare that if there was enough blue in the sky to make a pair of men's trousers it would turn into a nice day. (I don't know if worked)

            We moved from South East to South West. Had my washing on the line but it was a dull, windless day. An elderly lady was walking past and she nodded in the direction of my washing and said "they're like hanged men" . 🤤 I've never heard that saying since but it's one that stayed with me.

                I am a southerner, and have been training to be a northener since 1997, I have learned so many new sayings since marrying a Yorkshire lass (there's one), that I cannot print them all. I love the broad Yorkshire accent though.

                  Part of our dialect, i will often say ‘where you to’ meaning where have you been and/or where are you,
                  Another favourite word of my mine is gurt , meaning big , or large it can also mean great so has a double meaning
                  As long as there’s golf and beer I’m happy
