Just two phrases that my father often uses:
a) spending money like a man with no arms (might be reference to the Life of Riley explanation I found in the archives)
b) how's your belly off for spots: how are you?
I've only found one other person whose family uses (b) - they lived in the East of London, as did my family.
Grateful to know if anyone else uses them, or knows their origins.
