Phrases from your childhood
It is of constant amusement to my kids, their pals, now young adults, when I inadvertently drop in a colloquial phrase from my upbringing, even more so at work

Terms seemingly unfamiliar but standard fayre back in the Brampton days

So give me your 'endangered' phrases from a time when we were young and the sun shone - I'll kick off

Face like a smacked arse
Face like a China man's arse
Silly as a sack of arseholes
What a LEMON
About as genuine as a 5 bob note

Oh and referring to %0 new pence as 10 bob always raises a snigger

But is it true that you selectively held pace for the right 'Percy'?
Common practice among our more athletic fillies engaged in kiss chase

Fab, Mivvy , Zoom, Cola Ice Poles ( non bench versions)

Jubblies ( ate those buggers just for the packet, put them on the floor and stamp air inside and the explosion used to make the old duffers dive for cover - Luftwaffe issues )

The best thing about my 1970s childhood - apart from being able to run faster than all the percy perverts - was the huge variety and creativity of ice lollies.

4x a penny in my day
That's a proper big penny, so 2x an halfpenny
1x a farthing I believe, albeit those buggers with the little wren had ceased to exist by the time I did

Proper pennies were half a New Pence
So 12x in you new fan-dangled Pence

And I'll have you know that there was proper uproar when a Mars/Twix/Topic (hazelnut in every bite) rose to the giddy heights of 4x NEW PENCE post decimalization
