Daft things my mum used to say


If you were a child of the 70’s chances are you were subject to some of this cryptic talk….

1. Stop your crying or I’ll give you something to cry about

2. I’m not buying fizzy pop any more, you’ll only drink it

3. Remember you’ve got to come down (stood at the foot of the stairs waving her hand whilst I gave her lip from upstairs)

4. I’m not buying biscuits any more, you’ll only eat them

5. Because I said so (if I ever asked ‘why”?)

6. A big potato with a little potato (whenever I asked what was for tea)

7. There and back to see how far it is (whenever I asked where she’d been)

8. Don’t sit too close to the telly, you’ll get square eyes

9. Get your @rse up those dancers (get to bed)

10. Don’t come running to me when you break both your legs
