I learnt why the pronoun (often 'it') always separates the English phrasal verb:

but the object doesn't necessarily separate the two parts:

write what I tell you down
write down what I tell you

You can use solider as a verb. "If you can solider in the jungle you can solider anywhere".

At a funeral today. One of the Undertakers was in the same year of school as me. We also share the same birthday. He looked ten years older than me. Which was nice as he always was a twat.
