  • Words we don’t use any more…
  • My dad was complaining about adolescents in general the other day.

    Actually used the word ‘Beatniks’.

    “Outwith” – great Scottish word!! Also “uplift” – like “we will uplift the rubbish on Thursday”.

    Also – “playpiece”. Whe we moved to Scotland my daughter came home from her first day of school and asked if she could take a “playpiece” to school. Mrs DrJ, being a bloody foreigner, had no clue what she was talking about.
