Quote: We ad tin bath int yard, we youst put dog in frst to wharm watther up
When I were a lad we didn't have a tin bath and we didn't ave water, we had to spit in t' cess pit at the bottom of t'garden. And we didn't ave a dog - we had to train one of t' rats from t' sewer to bark and fetch a stick. And then we 'ad to eat it for Christmas.
The dog, not the stick, I mean.

There's nowt as tasty as a bluebottle covered in icing sugar.
Icing sugar? Did I hear you say, ICING SUGAR???
When I were a lad, we weren't that rich that we could afford bluebottles, we had to scrape the bacteria from under our fingernails, make it into cakes, and squeeze the neighbour's cat to get the custard out.
We used that too - as sauce for the mud pies.
Best on 'road-kill' though
When I were nobbut a girl we had to eat cardboard for us tea and pretend it were toast. Then we 'ad to sick it all up again and make papier mache eggs for us breakfast and we'd eat 'em wi' a scraping of gravel from t'road. We were poor but we were 'appy.
I wasn't even aware that Valhrona chocolate existed, and I only got to eat Suchard once a year on our annual skiing trip to Andorra; the rest of the time I had to make to with Cadburys
Oh the deprivation!

Where we lived when I were a lad we didn't ave none of that new-fangled tarmac nonsense, like what you get on the posh estates nowadays. We 'ad to wade barefoot along the cesspit to get to work at the mines so early in the morning that we hadn't yet set off back home from the day before.

You didn't know you were born, lad. Cesspit? We'd a killed for a cesspit to wade through. We had to swim across in ours wi'out a snorkel and if we coom oop for air our dad'd throw us in again at t'other side, dance on us heads until we were dead, and then we'd have to work all day and all night in't mines and then he'd kill us again and then send us to bed wi' no tea.
