I always though "impittant" was our way of saying impudent not impertinent.
Both have the same meaning.
And mine (Roker)
Eh, imppittent isn't a real word?
Thought it was used to describe a cheeky little shit who talks back to elders?
We were always told to stop being impittent when younguns
Git Choller or Choller as owt
My missus was talking about our grandson at the weekend:
“He’s in the kitchen on his honkers”
Not heard that for ages.
Aye but she said honkers and it took me back years. It’s what we used to say.
We used to say *Tumbling your creams when we were kids
I thing we got mixed up with "creels"
*cowping your creels
We said hunkers
Me mam used to say that. “He’s cowped his creels” ie he’s fallen over.
She also used to call the kitchen her scullery
And round our way (South Hylton)
Oh yes I think me Nanna had a scullery it was tagged on to the end of the house
Yeah same here. But my grandma, not Nanna.
I had two Nanna's, one gran dar and an uncle ted ( thats what we called one of me Nannas second husband)
My son had a Nanna (my dad died when I was pregnant ) and a grandma and a gran dad
My contemporys who have been blessed with grand children are mostly opting to be called "Grannie" now .
It's just Nana and Granda in the sunny climes of South Durham
My husband is from Harrogate, I blame him for all these "foreign" terms, for gods sake he even got the son calling me "mum".
Grounds for divorce that, Karen.
Separate names with a comma.
