Re: Christmas 2019

We had a Christmas card yesterday, your average square card, gold colour with a silver star embossed in the middle, on the back of the card it said " warning this is not a toy, not to be given to small children, as they can easily choke on small parts" :-)19 :-)19

Re: Nouns becoming verbs....................

Perhaps I could try announcing bus stops in an announcer type voice, that will confuse everyone. We hate the endless recap on programs. Abandoned Engineering is one programme that comes to mind. Also loud music when someone is speaking. Heard someone talking about Bette Davis once, she was told at t...

Re: Christmas 2019

That did make us laugh marigold, excellent. We must see a pic of the jumper it sounds fantastic. OH has just received the latest bulletin from Sail Amsterdam 2020, so her head is firmly stuck in next August as she has excitedly realised she is going to add 39 + tall ships to her ever growing list. C...

Re: Nouns becoming verbs....................

Podiuming, dear Lord how ghastly almost as bad as "he/she is really bossing this game" I gather it means the person is playing really well. Long gone are the wonderful announcements between programmes, read by someone immaculately dressed, and when one person could cope admirably with a programme, w...

Re: Nouns becoming verbs....................

I work and live in the estuary English part of the world. A common phrase in these parts is " I liken it a lot. whatever happened to "like". "gissa a return ticket to…" Not quite sure how the language is evolving around here, and the most annoying " I went to the cinema yeah, and we saw Cats yeah, i...

Re: Christmas 2019

Absolutely Marigold we all grew up ok. OH says she never played much with dolls, much preferred outdoors and Lego and her brothers Meccano. We also played cowboys and Indians without becoming gun toting criminals in later life.

Re: Christmas 2019

Yes we never choked on a 6D, or the little toy in a cracker. Never became a chain smoker from the chocolate cigarettes. Pink sugar mice were another seasonal delight. I remember orchard jellies also, and home made mince pies, cake and pud every time. Oh the thrill of a hot mince pie on Christmas Eve...
