Don’t wanna be around when she starts writing with those!
My auntie once said something was “bram new” (she thought that was the phrase) and now we always say it and my mum says “going off on a tandem” instead of tangent (she knows that’s not the phrase, though). Lasagne looks gorge!
I have a whole bunch from my own childhood and a whole other crop from my own family. I particularly love a few that have come from mine and my kids obsession with the poetry and songs of John Hegley. In particular I love ‘furniture, no thank you.’ From Eddie Don’t Like Furniture and ‘why don’t you get..a better dog.’ Can’t recall the name of this one. Used frequently and never in relation to furniture or dogs.
I’m basic too - I intend to keep it that way.
Food is the stuff of life so it’s not really sad.
