A rubbish snap but too tired to do anything else and it marks the day. This arrived in the post from a friend in Australia, obviously I need to brush up my Aussie language!
It is going to be very strange having children that eventually don't have the same accent as me. Am already thinking about helping the boys with homework and not knowing my Australian history/geography etc. Is weird to think that I am Australian but class myself more as British seeing as we moved to the UK when I was 1 years old but my children who are more British will end up more Australian.
So a few gems from the book
Woolloomooloo uppercut - a kick to the groin
Budgie smugglers - men's swimming costume. Also known by the brand Speedo.
Blue-flier - a fast kangaroo
Flemington confetti - rubbish
A major brand in Australia years ago. I bought a set for my HK Holden in the mid seventies. Are they still around?
