I've just remembered Mum saying that a neighbour was “no better than she ought to be”. The same neighbour also “thought she was the cat's whiskers” (I don't think Mum liked her very much).
My grandfather would “bet a pound to a penny that....” (something would or wouldn't happen).
In our house, some people were “as thin as a rake” and could be “as daft as a brush”. “Where there's muck there's brass” and “there are none so strange as folks” were other sayings around at the time.
I still say “gosh” or sometimes, to make GC laugh, “oh golly gosh” or “jolly hockeysticks”.
