That is the Sunday Paper (for the crossword) in our house.

Our bog books are more of the Mammoth Book of Jokes variety. (Said book is actually on the desk right now)

The ones you are referring to are under the mattresses in the boys bedrooms.

Funny you should mention that, Mary.

Not an expression used at CH, but MATTRESS is used locally, especially in our watering-hole, to describe a woman of very easy virtue !!

'Mattress bouncing............' and 'Mattress testing' !

By the side of each bed, there was a metal box with a wooden lid for putting clothes and other items into... I don't know if it was a "slang" word as such, but weren't thay called settles?

A settle is a wooden seat with storage underneath, like a wooden ottoman I suppose, so not a slang word.

Oftne found in hallways to sit ona and put on/take off your shoes.

I am trying to get hold of one as I have never got out of the habit of dropping my clothes down by the side of my bed and my wife has now given up:

a) trying to re-train me and
b) picking up dirty underclothes off the floor.

I heard there were some in the scout hut ...... ??

...in Brazil, the slang for the somewhat brief bikinis that are worn is "filo dental" which translates to dental floss. :)

And the beauty parlour hair removal waxing required to wear such a 'garment' is called a 'Brazilian' if you didn't know.
