    Black over bills mother must be a black country expression as I've never heard it anywhere else.

    Batch( as in bread roll) is a term I've only ever heard in my home town, and my dad still uses it.

    Bostin grub.

    I'm not familiar with foot of the stairs, I've obviously never been there.

    No better than she should be.
    I never understood that but know it usually resulted in being up the duff or a member of the pudding club.

    Black over Bill’s Mother’s ... we used to say this in Derbyshire.
    Also: Scratting about like a badly fowl, face like a hobbinfoot, pulling yer tripe out, so ugly they had to tie a bone round it’s neck so the dog would play with it, top coat warmer ... the pub was the ‘gin palace’ and make up was ‘puss muck’.

    "All fur coat and no knickers" my elderly female relatives were fond of that one.
    "Mad as a bag of frogs" often used by my first HoD when refering to certain interesting pupils
