On 1 March 2021, the Welsh Government launched their the Claim What’s Yours campaign (#hawliadyarian / #claimwhatsyours) to encourage people to check and claim the benefits they are entitled to.
You know that you’ve been brought up by a Welsh woman when a cup of tea and a cwtch solves most of life’s problems. We asked what were people’s memories of things their mothers/grandmothers/ mother figures said to them.
Here’s a selection..many we find ourselves saying to our own children!
“Who is she belonging to?” – when you are telling them about a person you have met.
“I don’t care who started it, but I’m finishing it!” – that fight with your sibling!
“Rolls Royce ideas, bicycle money” – when you are just dreaming too big and need to be reminded !
“Wait till your father get’s home!” – when you did something really bad!
“Take your coat off or you won’t feel the benefit when you go out” – temperature control!
You’re not going to leave that, are you? Those children in Bosnia [insert current international crisis here] would kill for that!” – addressing the issue of food waste!
‘Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves’ – money management advice.
“Who do you think you are talking to the cats mother?” – when you are being too chopsy!
“If the wind changes your face will stay like that” – beauty advice.
“Eat your crust or you won’t have curly hair” – hairdressing tips.
“When I was young….” – used to remind you how easy you had it!
