Collins says `molly' is `Irish informal' for a weak, effeminate or cowardly boy or man and possibly comes from Molly, the nickname for someone called Mary.

I found nyself using this phrase this morning on Shed Culture. 'As I was quietly chobbling the bearing housings out '.  I had reverted to Warwickshire dialect which is where I picked it up at Whatcote when I was farming there. Anyone else come across it?

"Eeeeee "..........

Mum came  out with a phrase, tonight , that I hadn't heard for quite a while  ....

"Eeeeee , it was a right funny-do "

.......it made me smile because she realized staight away , that she'd slipped back into the vernacular....!

I have lived  in both yorkshire and lancashire for about the same time now and am begining (please forgive me) to mix greetings up..so can someone sort my list out: 'Now then!' 'Ey up!' ' How do!' ..in my mind the first and the last are Lancashire and the middle one Yorkshire..or have I got it back to front?
Oh and then there's 'Sithee!' 'Think on'. ' Areet?'

I wouldn't like to be dogmatic about any of 'em Belle. I've heard 'sithee' in Lancs, Yorks and Derbyshire for certain. Think on was in Stockport when I was a lad and I think I started to use 'alreight' as a greeting when I came to Barlick.The only phrase I think I can say I have heard nowhere else but in Barlick is 'Thing o' purpose'. Old Sid Demaine used to say that regularly. A very old construction.
