I was thinking about the things my mother told me as I was growing up, and I thought what a lovely reminiscing afternoon this could make. So, what did our mothers tell us.....

Hello Louisa,
Most of these sayings were said by my mother to her 5 children growing up in the 50's, 60's and 70's.
A few others that still get quoted among my siblings today are:
* Elbows off the table!
* If you can't say anything good about a person don't say anything at all.
* Let the visitors eat first
* If that's lunch we've had it!
* Night night! God Bless.

Aw, it's special when we pass things down through the generations :o)

Hello Louisa, you must have lived in our house, I'm Welsh, my mam said most of those sayings to us when we were growing up, lovely, and I have used them to my children, to my grand children, and my grandchildren have passed them on to their children, my great grand children, what a lovely memory. Thanks for the memory. Gwyneth
