Whenever she was asked where she came from she always replied 'Bootle where the bugs wear clogs' !! with pride!!!! , if us kids ever asked her what colour something was she would always reply 'sky blue pink with a finny adder border', and she always called the cupboard under the stairs the cooey not the cubby, whenever I call it this people not from Bootle don't know what I'm talking about!!

I always got things wrong, unless I saw them written. Perhaps my hearing was never as good as it should have been. But that makes a great deal of sense now. Thanks :oops: Bit like Chinese whispers I suppose.
