Bunny be Kerry to us and Bunny to rest of forum, it's what I try but some peope won't call me by BJAY!
Forename - ish
Will we have to try and guess BJay's name now?
Bjay is not up for guesses I'm afraid. I have my reasons
I was dragged up in West Midlands, then moved to Manchester/Kent/Wrexham/Liverpool/Hastings/Somerset. I was always good at languages so tend to be a bit of a chameleon where accents are concerned. A friend was listening to my voicemail message on my mobile the other day in my presence, and said I sounded posh! Must be my 'telephone voice'. He said there was no trace of Midlands - not that I am ashamed of it, but some people seem to have a prejudice.
Unfortunately midlands has crept into my accent
I rang my mother the other week and said "hello Mam, how are you?" she replied "who's speaking?"
Nothing wrong with Midlands, Rosa.
My parents were Black Country, though quite 'well spoken', and Mother didn't approve of us speaking 'Brummie'. Dad spoke two languages - Black Country at work and RP at home. My brother has moved back to the Black Country and likes to use the accent.
In between chatting on here I am looking online for a pair of gardening gloves. I'm forever buying cheap ones and throwing them away a few weeks later so I thought maybe some softish leather ones might be good? I've got very small hands and all the ones I try one in GCs are huge on me or are not very flexible. Anyone have any recommendations please?
I've some lovely ones - soft leather, don't go hard when they get wet, my most important tool really. Just looked, they're in the GH will look tomorrow, but not sure the label has survived. Will let you know
I was like you, fed up buying cheap ones, so had some quality ones. and I've only small hands
These any good Caz?
