    Ok this should be fun, as you all know @Admin and I are from South Wales and us welsh have a mad reputation for our phrases, so what do you say that is renowned for the area you come from and what do they mean?(y)

    Here are a few from us...:whistle:
    I'll do it now in a minute.. or I'll do it now after..
    That's a nice coat that jacket is...
    Are you sitting on that chair you're standing next too..
    :D:D:rofl:

    You know Yorkshire has a motto

    See all, 'ear all, say nowt,
    Tak' all, keep all, gie nowt,
    An' if tha ivver does owt fer nowt,
    Allus do it fer thisen

    Or in standard English

    See everything, Hear everything, Say nothing,
    Take everything, Keep everthing, Give nothing,
    And if you ever do something for nothing,
    Always do it for a reason.

    This doesn't really paint Yorkshire folk in a great light does it?, and transcribing this on a smart phone has left me a little traumatized

    Yes we use these..
    I often say are you having a bubble too. Rhyming slang - bubble bath/laugh.

    Welsh ones are odd, not as odd as Geordies no doubt.!
