Greetings from Colorful Colorado, Matilda! I must admit, as an American, I’ve never heard such a greeting before! I’ve been able to navigate country-specific idioms before, but that one had me stumped.
I’m sure you will find plenty to chat about. We’re a pretty nice, diverse group of ladies here. I look forward to getting to know you.
It’s not often I hear that saying but I probably hear it far more than anyone else here. It’s East Midlands but not Lincolnshire, where I live, as far as I know. I’m with Cassandra on this, broad accents take a lot of understanding. As an example, being close to Yorkshire I often see things written in a Yorkshire accent and, being able to understand in the main because it is similar to Lincolnshire, as least some parts, I do wonder how many just look at the words with bewilderment. I love local accents 🙂
Still I digress! I am happy to meet you and look forward to your company.
I am also happy to meet you! I live in Northamptonshire in Britain and have done so most of my life, so I’m used to the accent. I rather like the accent! I tend to talk very much like that myself. I am sure you’ll grow accustomed to it.
Northamptonshire is a beautiful part of the world, I must say. I love the whole countryside and transport access links: the bus service in Northamptonshire is excellent. This includes villages, as well as market towns and Northampton itself. I couldn’t live anywhere else.
