You're like a slow walk and a cup of tea

Posted by Blackie on July 26, 2005

Has anyone else ever encountered the expression: "You're like a slow walk and a cup of tea"? I remember my grandmother using it often when I was a child in the North East of England. I think its meaning is pretty obvious, but I'm curious to know if it was, or is, generally used (at least in some parts of England) or just something she made up herself.
