Alreet Pet is a much used greeting here in the North East. It's one of those things we say without realising that it makes little to no sense unless we're conversing with another member of the Geordie race.
Say it to someone from outside the region and chances are they not have the foggiest idea what it is you're trying to say. We thought this made it a good candidate for our next design so it's made it into our growing range of Geordie gifts as a bib, vest and Geordie kids tee.
Here's a quick look at those 3 items which are all currently available on our site or in selected stores in the North East.
All of those items are also available in white with black print but the white ones have just returned from the printer and I haven't got around to photographing them quite yet but I will soon.
Whilst mooching around the internet I found this Love Heart with Alreet Pet on it. Are they to be found in regular packs of Love Hearts I wonder or were they part of some special edition packs? Anyway they're lush and I'd love to get my hands on some!
"Eeh i'm clamming for some some scran hinny, get yasel doon the shops for some stottie cakes man woman!".
If you're from the North East the above sentence makes perfect sense, even if perhaps you don't use the terminology yourself you'll get the meaning. However if you're from 'daan Saaaf' (doon Sooth) you'll probably struggle especially if the words are spoken to you at speed from a bloke from Ashington. To be fair I struggle to understand blokes from Ashington from time to time and personally I'd tell him to get his own lunch as i'm busy.
