25. TUCK IN YOUR TUPPENNY
Eric Partridge's Dictionary of Historical Slang derives "tuck in your tuppenny" from rhyming slang. It means "tuck in your head". Rhyming slang gives "tuck in your loaf of bread". "Loaf of bread" becomes "tuppenny loaf" and then "loaf" is dropped. It seems "tuck in your tuppenny" was a necessary instruction if you were playing leapfrog- otherwise, painful injuries could ensue.

32. SAIRY DEFENDS HER PATTENS
Pattens are protective overshoes that were worn from the Middle Ages until the early 20th century. They were worn outdoors over a normal shoe, had a wooden or later wood and metal sole, and were held in place by leather or cloth bands. Pattens functioned to elevate the foot above the mud and dirt (including human effluent and animal dung) of the street, in a period when road and urban paving was minimal.
