Glasgow slang, common phrases

Hey, all! I am writing a story in which one of the main characters is from Glasgow and has been living in London for the past 12 years. She's in her late 20s, and I'm looking for some slang or phrases that I can throw in every now and again. One I'm looking for specifically is a word or phrase that means that she's playfully teasing someone, but I would love to have some other words and phrases in my back pocket for later on in the story, especially any that her Londoner girlfriend might tease her for.

And two quick questions about some phrases I've found in my research:
1. is the term "roister-doister" actually used?
2. would she greet a woman she fancies by saying "awright, darling?"

I have been looking at Scottish slang dictionaries online and watching YouTube videos of slang, but I'm worried that I will pick some that are severely out of date or uncommon. Any help would be majorly appreciated! Thanks a bunch!
