Things that make me smile…

Going out in the garden just as one of the male neighbours is belting out:

“When it’s cold outsi-ee-ide, I got the month of May.”

Followed by him bellowing, “Eh?  Y’What? Ba side of t’elly yull see where carpet’s oop.”

I went back in side chuckling.

Guess you had to be there…

    lol sounds a lot like our next door neighbour. He is, too, exceedingly loud at times!! Hope you’re all looking forward to christmas/Yule. Have you seen Chatsworth House’s festive displays yet? We’re hopefully going this weekend to really get us all in the mood! 🙂 x

    We live in Yorkshire, so it was my attempt at reproducing his accent, basically it translates as “Pardon? By the side of the telly you will see that the carpet’s up.”

    He had quite a nice singing voice though 🙂

    In typical village fashion he’s the ex of my brother-in-law’s step-daughter and father to *some* of my brother-in-law’s step-grandchildren. We don’t really talk to them much, except for asking them to stop their kids swearing at my kids (etc). Atleast the tenuous family link means they listen and we haven’t had much trouble recently.

    Ah ha! Sounds even more like our next door neighbour now!! Their children also seem to enjoy swearing at every given (and not so given) opportunity!! Ahh, neighbours……
