'll buy you two in case one makes you sick It took me years to realise Mum was being sarcastic!
Y is a crooked letter than can't be fixed
Loads from above but particularly I want never gets, and "She's" the cats mother were said with regularity.
It's a man place to try it, and a womens place to deny it- once and once only ! Said often when I was a teenager and going on a date!

Loving these. My parents are southerners and had no useful sayings. Although, being brought up in the north, I heard some great ones growing up.
"You make a better door than a window" (for standing in someone's way)
"I want never gets" (I use this all the time with my 2 DSs now)
"Were you born in a field?" (for not shutting the door)
There must've been more .

Reckons he's body everyself (referring to someone a bit big-headed)
Smart as a carrot half-scraped
Dirty cup of tea (with a dollop of clotted cream in it)
You could shave a dead mouse without waking it (referring to a sharp knife)
Cat's got your tongue (child not speaking)

My Great-Grandad used to have loads of sayings,
When it was my bedtime he would say up the wooden hill to Bedfordshire, and you'll be asleep in two shakes of a lamb's tail.
If I did anything silly he called me daft ha'porth of daft as a brush.
My Nan always says I can't get up I've got a bone in my leg.
Mum always used to say do you think money grows on trees? - to which the answer was yes if its made of paper.

After one of us saying pardon me after a burp/fart etc my nan would always turn round and say 'they don't pardon pigs they shoot them' and before any big day or event she would say 'dont be nervous just dress to impress and be prepared to go down with the ship' another but I still say it to myself to this day whenever I have a meeting or something to go to.
