I'm old, and used to "play out" with friends back in the day, when "Charlie" used to call paedophiles "strangers"



Oh how things have changed, anyone remember a game (interactive with friends in real life) called DELEVO?

Memories

I heard crikey but I still hear that used too.

Goodness gracious.

Groovy, though only the Brady bunch even attempted to use that. Made it totally uncool in one episode.

Sling your hook ( get lost or bugger off )

A smidgen ( something small )

Snoggin ( kissing )

Lord All Mighty ( something shocking )

Having a kip ( sleeping )





Scram get lost too

A pinch a small amount. I still use smidgen .

Sucking face or swapping spit kissing

MY WORD ! When something is shocking

Sawing lumber or counting Zs sleeping.

English/ American translations. Lol

I remembered the rhyming slang that's been eluding me:

A pint of Acker = milk (for Acker Bilk, a talented musician).

Now, isn't that smashing?
