    Growing up in Northern England (God’s Own County of Yorkshire, no less) we regularly used the term, “side the pots” – which meant to put away or tidy up crockery.

    We had lots of other colourful expressions as well, including “mash the tea” for allowing tea to brew in the pot, “bairn” referring to a young child, “throng” meaning “busy”, “laik” meaning “play”, and “ummer” – a curious euphemism for “hell”.
