Were You Born In A Barn? Close The Door


She gave us the advice, a shoulder to cry on and a kick in the back side when needed but all this warmth and wisdom came with some funny sayings. To be honest, when I think back to the chaos we caused in the house I don’t blame my mam for coming out with a few crackers!


1. Do You Think I have Shares In the ESB, Do Ya?!

Walking out of a room and leaving the lights on was one of my specialities as a kid. I didn’t pay the bill so I never seen the importance of turning them off!


2. Why, Because I Said So That’s Why

The moment you realise that you are your mother’s daughter when these words come out of your mouth. Children love asking this question and sometimes they don’t realise how annoying it can be but it’s all part of being a kid!


3. Jesus Is That a Belt Or A Skirt?

A big shout out to all the mammies that made us change our outfits before the disco. We didn’t appreciate your face of disgust at the time but we do now!

4. I Think You’ve Had Enough Gallovant’in For One Day

Hated hearing this sentence as a teenager. You just knew all your friends were out having the craic and you were at home watching blind date with your mam!


5. Wait Until Your Father Gets Home!

Well, it did keep us quiet. By the time our father got home mam forgot to tell him! It got us every time.
