Suffolk phrases?

Posted by Michael Motts on April 27, 2010 at 06:15

My Father who came from Suffolk had many phrases he used. One was to forsee bad weather was "It looks a bit crampy over Wills mothers". Another was when as kids we asked him to do something when he didnt want to was "you go and Nannywiggle". A third he used if he didn't want to do something was "I can't do that I have got a bone in my leg". I have never heard of anyone else using these phrases. Are they local to Suffolk or did he make them up?
