  1. George Thorne

    The medical team will be rubbing their hands in anticipation. It'll keep them in a job for a while.
  2. A Duck Cob

    Interesting. I never new the etymology of that one.
  3. A Duck Cob

    I'd agree with that. In Buxton, it's a strange mixture of Mancunian, S. Yorks (Sheffield) and N. Staffordshire. Certainly different to Chesterfield, which is geographically nearer than Manchester. My cousin lived in Stockport, which really is something else! 'Mam, can we gooor ont booorts?' = Please may we hire a pedalo.
  4. U18s v Man Utd - FA Youth Cup

    Not the one being carried out, I should think!
  5. A Duck Cob

    Shove th' wud int' 'ole = Please close the door. There used to be some amusing cockney notices in a pub near where I worked in London. One which springs to mind was 'Don't thow yer oilies on the Rory. Please use the ashtrays.'
  6. A Duck Cob

    Just come across this, which seems fairly comprehensive, but I'm buggered if I can find 'buggered'. http://www.theotaku.com/worlds/ayup/view/126135/the_derbyshire_dialect/

  8. Posters Crimbo Trees

    Do you mean the curtains? Fenwicks in Leicester I believe. Closed this year, sadly. Like losing an old friend, so the wife says.
  9. Brexit or Eurin?

    The Guardian. A bastion of impartiality.
  10. Posters Crimbo Trees

    Mrs P's offering from Chateau Phoenix. Damned lights keep changing colour so it's not representitive. Lousy picture, and doesn't do justice to the few Crown Derby baubles secreted in there. (no longer available apparently. Better keep an eye on the grandchildren.)
  11. Random stuff that annoys me thread

    Only one way to tell. Was he wearing shorts?
  12. The one's that got away

    Will someone take that apostrophe out of the title, please.
  13. Cheese

    Stilton freezes well, too, but again, can become a bit crumbly.
  14. Cheese

    I like Derby Sage but I find it tends to dry up very quickly.
  15. Cheese

    Here's a good site. They had a stall at the Charsworth Flower show and we bought some of the Extra Mature. Tasty. They do a very wide range. Worth a perusal. https://www.cheshirecheesecompany.co.uk/
