    I had to smile at the conversation about Queens English accents
    English speaking people here very much speak like they have a hot potato in their mouth they look at me with a Yorkshire accent and xant tell a word I say sometimes but still proud to be Yorkshire and wouldn't want to change it for the world

    that’s funny Sandra. But when we are in Oz, people who we speak to there,
    always ask if we are from Yorkshire.! I suppose that’s because there are so many Brits there,
    that they recognise the different accents.
    On the other hand, when we were in Bath a man said to me “ you’re not a local, are you
    from Lancashire!!!!!! I was offended and told him so. The cheek of the man
    Ellie
    PS. Forgot to say Denise, the die is ordered.

    It's funny but in Liverpool there must be at least five different accents, ranging from shall we say Queen's English, to no discernible accent, then we go into a hint of Liverpool, then to a Liverpool accent and eventually what they call a Scouse accent. I used to be teased a lot when I moved to Liverpool about my accent which is from the Wirral and only over the Mersey or as they call it here 'over the water'. We, like anyone from the wider Merseyside area are called 'woolly backs.' But on the Wirral it can range from so 'far back' cup sounds like cap, to almost a Liverpool accent. I find it all very interesting and it's the same with names these days. When you speak to someone on the phone there are so many to us, foreign names, I always ask where they are from and how to spell and pronounce their name. It makes me feel sad that because we here can't pronounce it easily they say "Oh call me Adam" instead. I don't want to call them Adam, I'd rather make the effort to call them by their given name - call me old fashioned.

    If there is one thing that bugs hubby it is when someone, usually young people say ' it weren't me' he really hates that.

    Sheila, I haven't forgotten about the die, I just haven't got round to cutting anything yet (wow that's a first from me) thought I'd say it before you did Ellie. I will get some cut for you though I promise.

    I find that interesting too Susie. In Sheffield it is the same.
    It goes from really broad , which is hard to understand , to quite understandable, with
    just a hint of Sheffieldish.....
    My DDs used to get called posh, at school because although they had a Yorkshire accent,
    it wasn’t broad Sheffield!! I taught them to speak properly, or as they say in
    Sheffield... Proper !!
    The holly wreath die has arrived, and I’ve cut some out. It’s beautiful.
    Thank you Enabler !!

    Oh shucks, you're welcome Ellie. Check out the stamp on the snap chat forum. Hey, if I'm going to be called the Enabler, I may as well live up to my reputation.

    Meant to say, try dabbing a load of Versamark ink on it and use some embossing powder, it glitters up really well. Do remember to hold it still with a pokey took or you'll need propolis for your burnt fingers.

    When we were in Sheffield our next door neighbour had a really broad accent, I remember my grandfather from Somerset come to visit, he had a very broad Somerset accent . The two of them used to talk about gardening over the wall, I don’t know how they understood what the other was saying !
    We moved to sheffield from London when I was five, I remember being ridiculed at school for having a ‘posh’ accent. I soon changed my pronunciation of words like ‘bath’ ! We then moved down south again, near Cambridge, so I made a point of changing my accent again. I now have a non identifiable accent !

    Ellie, your die cut looks great, you’ll have to do the BTCR for June with them.

    When I moved here I'd be in a local newsagents and say "I'll pay for the paper, my husband is reading it over there' and they'd say "Oh he's over thar is he." I'd come out of the shop filling up because they were laughing at the way I spoke. Even hubby still skits at me. When's he's leaving the house I always tell him to take care and he replies,"Which car do you want me to take?" He calls me the Golly gosh girl!

    I tend to pick up other peoples accents and don't let me loose in Wales because I'm talking with a lilt in no time. One time I found myself talking like someone from Southern Ireland even the using the soft slightly lisping sound they make. It's a beautiful accent very gentle on the ear but once I'd noticed I did wonder if they thought I was taking the mickey and the more I tried to stop myself the more noticeable it became.

    I'm not sure what my accent is now. People from Liverpool don't think it's Liverpool but perhaps someone from the south would think it is, who knows.

    Alison my ex— sister in law came from Canterbury, and she says “barth “
    We always used to say. There’s no R in BATH
    Ellie. I might try the June cards, but I’ve got to be in the mood to do
    Christmas Cards.

    Both hubby and neighbour say Marster instead of master - why! I'm the same Ellie, saying there is no R in the word. Dad couldn't say cucumber, he said coocumber, it made us laugh but he used to get quite annoyed with us, especially when we said "Say cucumber Dad."

    Susie, don't worry about the die cuts, there's no rush, and thank you in advance for doing them. Let me know how much the postage is and I'll reimburse you.

    Just about to get the die cutting machine out Sheila, any idea how you were planning on using them, as in glittered, embossed or classic white? Don't worry about postage I'm sure it won't be much, they just need to be kept flat.
