You can't always rely on an old saying.
 
"He who hesitates is lost."
 
But "Look before you leap."
 
I used to live in the country and one very curious word I heard was "whopper-jawed." Not quite sure what it means; maybe "bent out of shape."
 
My late father-in-law would occasionally use the exclamation "Gosh all fishhooks," one of his milder ones. But I once heard it in a pre-war movie.

You’ll have had your tea then?

Basically it means you’re welcome but don’t expect to be fed.

Apparently the English think it’s Scottish which is correct in the context that ‘howay man’ is English ...

"If I don't see you through the week, I'll see you through the window"
My dad and uncles always used to say this when I was a kid. I assume it just meant they'd catch up with you again at some unspecified future time.
