    Yes. A handle came off one so we bought a new one. But I don't like it as much and since the old one is still useable I tend to go for it so...

    Lived in Scotland for three years and still miss the unbelievably brilliant way with words that my Scottish colleagues had. I learned such gems as "c**kwomble" and "testicle jam" which I use frequently and loudly.

    Sadly such things rarely come across as well with an english accent
    or not with mine anyway

    Ah, but certain things sound way better with an English accent.

    "Tyyyyke 'im aaaaaart Didactylos!" sounds better. (Take him out)

    In the interests of trying to keep up the frivolousness of this thread I have to confess to owning three! :oops: :eek: One large, one small and one metal.
    Even more disastrous is that I own two steamers (med and large) which the top half could double as a colander. :eek::(

    In my defence, all the large ones only come out when the family come over, so only one in 'normal everyday' use. o_O

    "One large, one small and one metal" perfectly describes my boyfriends before I met my husband.

    I'm now scrutinising my kitchen utensils, and finding them wanting.

    I have a colander and a strainer.

    I never use the colander.

    My favourite insult is (and don't tell me Scots never say it because you'll shatter my illusions):

    Ah, gae bile yer heid.

    (Sorry for the dodgy accent. I believe it equates to 'Kindly go and put your head in a pan of exceedingly hot water. Thank you.' I think...)

    I don't actually have a collander at all

    Much laughter :D

    I like the bottom picture, sign held by ordinary looking middle aged (ish) woman - context is all.

    I can't help feeling she needed a slightly bigger sign.

    I got used to it when I was too poor to buy one

    Hurrah! Scots and English unite. Excellent sentiment given a soupcon of Scottish flavour.

    It's the thought of her sitting at home with the felt tips that tickles me.

    Awa' 'n bile yer heid.
    I admit that awa' 'n fling sh!te at yersel' is more popular in my circles.

    Thanks for that @Flere-Imsaho

    I wonder if that's in here. AND is this a way to get rounded the dreaded TES nanny-says-no-naughty-words filter?
