Everyone all tickety-boo?
is everyone ok?
Aye...right chuffed with the weather but its left me a bit knackered! Hubby is throwing a wobbly though coz I drank his last bevvy so I've legged it upstairs, can't be arsed with it so he'll have to crack on while I wander around starkers for a while to cool off....
Yes, I'm happy with this weather but it's left me a bit tired. My husband is getting annoyed and chucking a hissy fit though because I drank his last beer, so I've run upstairs, can't be bothered with it so he will have to carry on while I walk around naked to cool off.

It's cheating to use Google Translate, if that's what you did...

I'm from Brizzle, which famously has it's own unique slang that even other Brits don't understand.

"Gert lush"
"Alright me babber"
"Proper mint, innit"
"ark at ee!"

Ah yes, the Bristolians are a breed all their own! So are the Scouse and Brummies 🤯
Northerners have a wide range of slang I'd never heard before too :D


Despite being from Brizzle, I don't really speak much Bristolian. My mother is from Birmingham, but the area where they don't have strong Brummie accents, so she'd rebuke us as kids if we used "gert lush" or "keener" (something I was often called since I was studious in school), so she kinda shaped my accent! Then I moved around all over the midlands once I left home, and consciously slowed down my speaking rate since people couldn't understand me if I spoke at Brizzle speed, so my accent isn't that strong! I count that as a good thing really.

If I ever catch a bus though, I still can't resist a "cheers, drive!" when getting off ;):p
