Hi!
We were often promised "Sh*t with sugar on" for tea.
If we'd missed a meal and someone asked what we'd had for dinner, the answer was, "A fresh air sandwich with no bread".

Life is great - if you don't weaken. Said whenever we started to enjoy something.

Something most of us would have heard earlier in life when out and about...
You wait 'til I get you home

If something was really dark
It's as black as yer 'at

Don't talk with your mouth full!

Eat your vegetables, they're good for you.

Better the devil you know
No use crying over spilt milk
Early bird catches the worm
If you Look after the pennies and the pounds look after themselves

My father in law used to always say `It's got two chances' meaning something either will or won't happen. He was a farmer so usually it was about whether a sick sheep or something would survive.
You could apply it to most of the newby questions we get on the forum. `Have I ruined my beer' - It's got two chances...

Ale, ale, glorious ale,

Some folks likes radishes,
Some curl-eye kale,
But give I boiled parsnips
And a girt dish o taters
And a pint of good ale.
