mardy
It's ages since I've heard that, that's what we used to say at school (N.E. Lincolnshire) - so where're you from 'Blue?

 ;D  hubby uses the term 'mardy' a lot here! He's Worcester born though. I have to say he directs it at out 'tweenager' mostly  ;)

food mardy really exists though doesn't it? and water mardy.  my children have taught me about those 2 conditions.  and today I have a mardy wether - he's in disgrace for diving under the electric tape (he times the clicks that only he can hear  ::)  )

I :love: Reggie, he's such a character!
  perhaps if he had a little radio or a tv, it would drown out the clicks?!  ;)

Oh, food mardy most certainly exists. My ex used to say he would look at me and try to decide if I needed pushing off a bridge, or just feeding!

Since we're using the word, Ellie, my milking goat is being seriously mardy today. She bashed me when I went to speak to her as i came in from shopping (I had my bright, clean- smelling coat on which she really doesn't like  ::)) and she keeps bashing Rowan (her goatling). Grumpy guts  :P

We use mardy too - I'm a Warwickshire girl originally. Southern husband had never heard of it but now uses it often - such a useful word!

Do other people use donnies for hands?

Plums, glad to hear Savannah is better.  Perhaps it was PMT.   ;)

I've heard the term mardy.  In Scotland it was crabbit.  I used to leave pictures of crabs on OH's pillow when he got too bad.
