Maggie, The dunderinin made me laugh so much. My mum used to say that a lot too.  I think they meant falling to bits.  It's only now we really how strange and funny Belfast sayings were. :D

I have a friend and her saying is " do you think i am zipped up the back " whenever some one is trying to take her on or make a fool out of her.

Whilst telling a yarn:  "And here, come mere, you've not heard the best of it, I'm not finished tellin you yet   !"
 
 
"Would you give us yer odds Mrs!"
 
"I've not seen her face on the road for donkey's years!"
