Just Jot Jan prompt: January 8th

Hurrah! It’s my turn to supply the prompt today and I came up with PANTS!
Thanks Linda!

Our friends across the Pond refer to trousers as pants, and I love the expression that things are totally ‘pants’ when they go wrong or we’re not feeling too good .
Somehow saying everything is ‘trousers’ doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.

Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

  6. I wonder why there are a seemingly large number of clothing items which we have different words for – like sweater/jumper, trainers/sneakers, etc.

    That expression was new to me when I first heard it only a couple of months ago. I had to look it up! 😛
    Thanks so much for the prompt today! 😀 ❤

    Hi! I’ve just done a very late post about your prompt and just being friendly or something and talking to the prompters. Did you get the pingback? Just figure you might want to have a look? I did pants pants but you’ve got underpants above which I did say in my post would be really easy one but pants was a bit hard really! So do you think I can do part two or pants two, underpants?
    Here’s my post, if you want to check it out or not? No worry if you don’t want too, it’s cool!
    Cheers 🙂

    • Picked up and commented on William. Let’s face it, we say a pair of pants so why not a pair of posts on the subject?! Pleasure to meet you via the blogosphere. Glad you’re having fun with the prompts. I love them.
