Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves
Guy I used to work with used to say "Silly as a box of matches" - I never did get the sense of that
Why is it that I remember most when I read them but can't think of them for myself-
Back in the day when we could we used to send a child to another teacher and ask for .........a long stand or a long wait...............then the person would see just how long they waited.
Mind you I also used to make children stand just outside my firedoor.It led to a narrow passage so they basically stood just against a wall. They couldn't see anyone or be seen.One very annoying girl changed her ways when I made her stand out there for only about 5 mins, though it seemed much longer in the snow. Things have changed a lot in the past 30 odd years
During today I remembered some other sayings, but they have gone completely out of my head Potty
A change is as good as a rest
Many hands make light work
What's for tea? 3 skips to the pantry door and back.
Put wood in hole...........for shut the door.
My grandad on seeing someone in shorts said, ' It's amazing the things that trousers hide'. Not really an every quote but we thought it was funny.
Buy cheap, buy twice. Fact!
