    Local Phrases

    If anyone asked my Dad where he was going and he did not want to tell he would say "I am going for a run with a rug round me" Is that a Lanncs saying,? I never heard anyone else use that phrase.

    The golden age of tut tuts

    We always called them trolleys too, I remember I made one with really big pram wheels on the back, we lived on a really steep hill almost 2 miles long, the first time I tried it down the hill I went past one of my teachers he was riding his motor bike, he had an old Sunbeam shaft drive and never went very fast. The next day at school I was sent for and given the cane for reckless behaviour. Wow that bought back a lot of old memories,
