It’s looking a bit black over Bill’s mother’s

So me mam used to say. A Nottinghamshire expression.

But who was Bill? Some say Kaiser Wilhelm II. Some say Shakespeare.

This was from Carr Ridge, looking like it’s raining over Stokesley. Not sure if this is the shower that drenched me twenty minutes ago or a new one approaching.

  1. Actually, its a Lancashire saying as well. Although I am from your end of Yorkshire, I am married to a Lancashire Lass, and she often uses this expression.

    It’s also fair to say her grandfather was called Bill, so we always looked to where he came from, near Ramsbottom.
