Do you remember these sayings?

Do you still find yourself quoting the popular sayings of days gone by? I often hear myself commenting in conversation with a classic phrase I'd learned growing up, only to find that my companion has never heard it themselves. Some are famously 'northern', learned from my beloved Grandma, and some are just time-old classics. Unfortuntely, many of them seem to have been retired nowadays.

How many can you remember?

There's nothing like a trip down memory lane so, just for fun, have a read of each line below and see how many well-known sayings spanning the last 5 decades, you can remember.
