My wife reminded me of something her Sheffield mum used to say when you asked her what are we having (to eat)? 

 

"Three times round the kitchen table & a kick of the cellar door."

 

No, I never understood it either?

If something unexpected happened my dad used to say "Chuffing Heeley Palace"

Some one dressed up was described as  "The Duke Of Darnall"

Someone dizzy or drunk "He don't know if he's on this earth or fullers"

Something not vertical was "Cockled over to one side" 

Some one skint "didn't have  two half-crowns to scratch his arse with" why would you want to?

Some one who pinched things was "a bit light fingered" or "found things before they were lost"

School teachers favourite saying was "empty vessels make most sound" that ones spot on.

A quiet pub was a "dead oil"

Chip shop was a "chip oil"

A pub was that was full on a dinner time,  it was like a  "Colliers Monday".

Heard of course of someone being 'A bit light fingered' but a similar saying that's stuck with me & many of my relatives because of my late mother's side, who was Scottish is 'He's a bit tarry-fingered.'

 

In other words, tar fingered, everything stick to them.

& probably the best word / phrase in the Scottish World must go to -

 

  Peeley-Wally    meaning - No so well
