Brit' Word of the Day....

Today's BWOTD is open for gross mis-interpretation!

"Would you just leave it out"

"Leave it out" = "stop doing/saying that" or "you must be joking"

This is another real Londoner and the Home Counties phrase that I would hear on a daily basis and it often made me smile to hear it, or use it myself!

So if a Brit' ever says this to you, they are not asking you to leave anything out for them, they're basically telling you to "shut-up", "quit that" or "be serious" in a friendly/jokey manner.

Hey, I think I'm going to adopt this phrase. Love it.

Speaking of love it...you are going to love your new blog roll. It's SO convenient!!!

I already do Willow, I love I can constantly see who has updated and pop over there. Plus it gives y'all a plug!

Well and I also prefer it set to show the latest updated, not alphabetical as some have set them. That way the latest is always on top - mean't to say that!

Leave it out girl..., Hi Sarah, everytime I go back to London for a visit my friends over here say they cannot understand me anymore and that's just the other Brits. apparently I lapse into Bianca from Eastenders, oh well, such is life. I will be back to read all your other posts, it was nice to come across another Brit in blog-land USA.
