Not lost lingo, but the missus always gives me stick about now in the year over lolly ice, she insists its ice lolly. I've just had a big discussion with my 6 year old explaining that his Ma is wrong and its lolly ice.

Flim deal.

just googled its etymology, bit I think I've only ever heard it in Liverpool

flim/flimsy = five pounds (£5), early 1900s, so called because of the thin and flimsy paper on which five pound notes of the time were printed.

Not sure if Ive posted this on here before but gozzy is deffo Scouse. I've used this word outside of Liverpool in England and nobody had a clue what it meant . I worked in London once with a girl from Bootle and used the word gozzy and everyone was confused as to what it meant. I had to say to her infront of everyone " What does gozzy mean Trace " . Her response was something like " Well it's just gozzy innit ".

That's it.

I think me and the Bootle lass had to slightly move a picture on the pub wall or something to illustrate gozziness.

Kids know no fear...I'm amazed we made it to our late teens. ;D

I recall being on the top floor, the rafters actually...5 floors up in this burnt out house and we were walking on the rafters with nothing but air between us and the ground. At one part we had to hop over a two foot gap as the rafters were burnt away. ;D  A normal Scouse kids upbringing. ;D

Is right.

As kids ( early 80s ) we use to go the Pier Head. Somewhere where the Maritime is there was a gate blocking off the now walk through towards the Albert Dock bit.  Anyway from the gate there was a semi circle spikey thing bit  hanging over the Mersey so we use to dare eachother to climb around it.

One slip and you are in the Mersey.
