Got that, Gaffer? Cheers, me old son!
Now I use these terms all over the school that leaves other students stare at me with bewilderment. It's great to know terms that others are not familiar with.
The book contains everything you could think of. I snuck the book out of its hiding place for me and the kids to read and it made us laugh so much. A very clever, different and unique gift. I could not fault it in any possible way.
The Shipping and handling was free and arrived less than 48 hours after i ordered it. Fabulous book, and fabulous service!!!!!
