Thanks Paul.
Last Friday was awful weather but npt to bad now. We are gatting abaht a bit. Confusingly the Thais use the baht as measure of gold !
1 baht of gold valued at 27,500 baht (currency) so aboooot £650 or 200 pints of "Timothy Taylors Landlord" in real money !

Not only The Thai currency..
A Baht is also used in Yorkshire quotes and estimates.
As in, " It'll be a baht £1000 ".
Hope you get off lightly.
And the weather is kind to you.
Sorry to disagree but I think in the example above that's one word i.e. "abaht £1000 ;). Whereas baht is indeed a word as in "on Ikley moor baht at", or is that "bah tat", or maybe "bahtat"....

Oh, the complex nuances of the Yorkshire native tongue. I really can't see why people struggle to understand us! :ROFLMAO:

You should try Orcadian, they even write with an accent. Here’s a little anonymous quote from a local Facebook group -

Got accosted many years ago by a bright wee lady in her nineties.

She was living alone in a cottage opposite an old hunting lodge - quite remote - on an estate in east Scotland that had been converted into a holiday let.
Was loving all the comings and goings with new visitors arriving every week, and obviously came out every time to greet (accost!) new arrivals.

Have to say it was like having a conversation with Rabbie Burns! :oops::LOL:

Funnily enough I managed to understand most of what she said, but for my Derbyshire pals she might as well have been talking Mandarin... :rolleyes: :cool:

There’s an old chap here that we bump into quite often and after nearly 20 years here we can just about grasp what he’s saying but when we first moved here he would chatter away to us and we would nod sagely and mutter “oh yes“, “no”, “hhmmm!” and we’d walk away saying to each other “I bet he thinks we’re right simpletons!”.

Watched the Jeremy Clarkson farm programme the other day. Chap on there called Gerald is completely incomprehensible. Funny watching Jeremy's face as he tries to understand!

To Martley near Worcester for 2 nights.
Very nice C&CC site @ £14 a night.
2 inspections for damp repair both about £1000 which is ok.
2nd company may well be able to replace the damaged front rooflight as well and did a better inspection.
They will also collect moho from our winter storage !
Final inspection on Thursday.

i used to work for McVities and had to visit their Tollcross factory. While there we (me and a colleague) called at the staff shop. While there a lady in the shop said, we’ll that’s just it i didn’t know what she said! I said “sorry?”, she said “????”. I said, ”sorry?” again, she repeated herself. I still didn’t know what she’d said, I looked at my colleague for help and he didn‘t know either, so I said “I’m really sorry, but I still haven’t quite got what you said”.

She scowled at me and said “we’ll I’m speaking f******g English!”. I looked at my colleague and we both cracked up saying “I understood that okay” 😂.

We never did find out what she said in the first place.
