Oh that did make me giggle. I remember when my Mum would use that expression, with raised eyebrows, and pursed lips. Now that I'm a volunteer at the Citizen's Advice Bureau (CAB), I've had to learn all the acronyms for the various benefits. HB, CTB, ESA, DLA, AA, PIP, WTC, CTC .... to name but a few.On TP ( Talkingpoint) we all use a User Name. Now mine is Cragmaid, so you could rightly assume that I am female.... I have an OH ( Other Half). In fact he is my husband, but he could just as easily be my partner, or lover. I could be divorced but still caring for my Ex OH. I could be Gay or living in sin. Good Luck....Cragmaid. AKA Maureen.
