    I still don't know about dochey bags or sliptoes.
     
  2. As I was going to St. Ives,
    I met a man with seven wives.
    Every wife had seven sacks,
    And every sack had seven cats,
    Every cat had seven kittens.
    Kittens, cats, sacks, and wives,
    How many were going to St. Ives?

    Not sure about the spelling tbh but in the bog (or fen) based site at dochey time we would pick up our dochey bag and go to the dochey hut where we would eat our dochey. Hope that makes dochey a little clearer.

    As for sliptoe not sure myself tbh but when I was an old boy (actually means young man) I remember the older chaps talking about sliptoes.

    You can't catch an old bog man with that!
