Cockney rhyming slang-Rosie Lee


Example-“Ooh, I do fancy a lovely cup of Rosie Lee.”




Lucky for you guys, it’s a short post today. Suffering the side effects of the Intravenous Iron Infusion (ooh, an alliteration) I had on Wednesday.

        • Superhero 1:”I am able to move anywhere through the power of teleportation.”
          Superhero 2: “I can move objects and people through the power of telekinesis.”
          Superhero 3: “I can fly through the air and move at great speed.”
          Superhero 4: “I am adept in the art of shape shifting.
          Me: “I can attract magnets with my butt”.

          Superheroes all fall silent and offer a sympathetic smile.

          Me: “I know what you guys are doing. STOP JUDGING ME!!”


  1. Intravenous Iron Infusion . . . . I have never heard of that, is it part of your magnetic personality HAH ah a ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha hah ah ah ah ha ha (sorry about that).

    Rosie Lee thats sort of like cross me palm with silver (definitely not iron) and I will look into the tea leaves and see what the future holds . . . . . . . . . Hang on yes I see an new convenient invention something called the Teabag . . . . . . . . . DAMN.

    Hope you are feeling OK what you need it Iron Bru. . . Although it is a rather distinctive taste one most folk would describe as YUCK and it more sugar than iron

    • When the consultant said I had to have an infusion, I was hoping more for a strawberry and blackcurrant tea infusion Mr Z, but it wasn’t to be. And my good friend did indeed bring along a bottle of Iron Bru. But then she’s clinically insane…

      Ah, the invention of the Rosie Lee Bags…er…that doesn’t work quite as well…
      And thanks Mr Z, feeling much better this evening.


  2. Lily, hope you’re feeling better after that IV Iron Infusion!! Thinking of you.

    Rosie Lee for tea, so interesting and I wonder if that was named after someone. As I’m reading this, I’m having a cup of green Rosie Lee with mango today. Like your images and LOL about saucy, clever!

    • Damn Frank, I don’t expect folks to comment on or read all 26 of the A-Z posts. People have lives…the bastards!
      I appreciate greatly and know that you read my posts, so honestly, don’t sweat it. 🙂

      At the moment, I feel like my body is encased in cement and that some sort of construction is taking place in my head, so much much better than yesterday.


    • Oh you tease me with your cup of Rosie, while my fridge is devoid of the goodness that is milk. Think of me whilst I imbibe some ginger tea instead. 😦

      Feeling good and migraine free, so thank you. 🙂
