    I have a daft habbit, it started when i was younger and i used to hang out with all my cousins. i just added ug to everything, like my cousin jenny, i call her jugs and i call my brother ug and cousin liz is lug. It is really daft and i'm so embarrassed about posting this but it has stuck. To this day jen is jugs and my whole family now call my brother ug. My oh has the same name as my brother and he has been ug too since we started out together. My aunts dog sally has also been christened suggs ha ha. I'm so embarrassed now:eek:

    My hubby is West Indian and he has loads of funny words. If one of the kids bang their heads he says they have a "bocky" head. He says that silly things are "yampy" We call custard "cootard" and mustard is "mootard". Pudding is "Coogings" and Dinner is "Ninner", I would go on but I am embarassing myself now. :D

    Was on CD last year, lost 35lbs. I need to lose another 21 but haven't decided which diet to use yet
    Yep we used this one too - but we say something's wonky. :D Must be a Merseyside thing lol!

    We also used to say bo-bo's to the kids when they were babies. We use mardy to mean someone is upset, whether they're sulky or tearful.

    We also have a few of our own made up words that have been used in the family for years and years. When Chris was a toddler, if he didn't know the name of something he would ask "What's that kibby Mummy?" So if we can't remember the name of a thing it's now called a kibby lol! Although in Liverpool most people say thingy. :D

    Got a jumper with bobbles on it? We call them boodles in our house. :D

    Just had to respond to this thread!

    My o/h and me use 'flup' instead of 'full up' too!

    I think there are things that relate to where you are from as people who aren't from Bristol don't say 'scrage' your knee or 'smooth' the dog! There are others too that I didn;t even realise were Bristolian!

    My cornish other half says "where's it to?" instead of where is it? and lots of other strange little phrases that I can't think of right now! I am slowly picking them up after living here for 13 years myself, and being with him for 8 :)

    Oh he says "give the dog a smoothing" too :D

    Just thought of a joint one - we call gloves 'glubs', and slippers 'slipper sloppers' lol!
