    You made your bed, you've gotta lie in it!!

    What goes around comes around

    Jump out of the frying pan into the fire

    Spit in the wind long enough and it'll come back and hit you in the face....

    There's no such word as can't...

    That one used to seriously annoy me as a kid!
    Until you ask them to do something and then mysteriously the word reappears in the english language :lol:


    OO and - take your coat off when your inside or you won't feel the benefit!
    I actually use that one myself now :oops:

    Close the door you wasn't born in a field.

    If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.

    my dads favourite during the winter was: 'close the front door, i'm not paying to heat the whole of Cobholm!!!'

    my mum's line was 'because i said so, that's why'

    You can like it or lump it.
    Don't do as I do, do as I say (oh says this)
    When I asked why they said "z"
    Theres no point crying over spilt milk.
    Think of all the starving children in Africa (A little story goes behind this one, apparently my mum said this to m y sis when she didnt finish her dinner and my sis said she was welcome to send it to them)
    Money doesnt grow on trees

    "I'm not buying biscuits, they'll only get eaten".....oh really? :shock:

    "Dont come running to me when you break your legs!"

    In reply to "what's for dinner"..."sugar and shit and a dance round the table"

    In reply to "its not fair"..."neither's a black mans bum but you dont hear them complaining"....

    My mum was off her head :roll:

    My mum had a similar one- "Sh*t sandwiches"

    When I was little my mum used to say my bedroom "look like the wrick of the Mary Celeste"

    My nans reply to "where is whatever" was "Up Sams arse in America" I never really understood that one :think:
