July 31st 1972

“Dam borin’ in t’morning but in t’afternoon bogged off into eastleigh”

I have not heard – or used – the slang phrase “bogged off” (a gentler, less sweary, version of “buggered off”) for the longest time!

“I am bogging off to Eastleigh”
“… and then she just got up and bogged off”
“Why don’t you just bog off, you ****?”

I think I may have to reintroduce it to my vocabulary?

At least that’s easier for me to consider than why my spelling suddenly now has a fake “northern” influence given the use of t’morning  and t’afternoon?
