I've done a search and found nothing here, so I don't think I'm repeating. One answer when asking what there was to eat was 'three jumps at the cupboard door'.

I was brought up in a back to back. As was usual in these houses the stairs to the bedroom had a door this door was called the "chamber door" especially by older people. Presumably in reference to the bedchamber - where of course the "chamber pot" was kept. As in the old joke "where's the chamber maid? - Stoke on Trent" boom boom (I'll get me coat)


Wartime joke (39/45!) Voice from bedroom, "Siren's going,
Ma, Jerry's over!'
Mum," Well mek sure tha' mops it up, or it'll come through
t'kitchen ceilin'!"
(A Chamber pot was also called a 'Jerry'(Don't ask!)

Here's one I heard recently:

"He's short o' nowt he's got."

- meaning he's a man who has everything.

Reminds me of:

If my dog had a face like that, I'd shave its bum and mek it walk back'ards!
