Any pronunciations or words you are banning in your house because you just can't embrace them despite being in Rome and all that???!!!
I married an Australian so 10 years ago I got in there early and now we both say:
Ooooooono (not "You Know")
Lego (not LAYgo - I am disappointed someone even thought they needed a phonetic spelling of Laygo as a business name!!!)
Flip flops. I convinced DH to say flip flops because we had probably one too many dinner parties where "thong" brought the room to dead silence. Ok I am prone to exaggeration but I had to quickly to explain to friends a few times what thongs were in Australia.
But I have, this summer begun to say thongs. The rot is setting in. DH helpfully asked me today whether I have noticed I am saying thongs to the children.
My children still say Lego. And Uno.
At the moment I can't think of any more unAustralianisms (sorry Sam) but feel free to add yours.
Lets campaign to keep SOMETHING of what we've left behind!!!!
Oh and I asked a friend for clingfilm when I was bringing DH a doggy bag of goodies from a late mums night on the weekend.
