Happy Australia Day! I've already got my exercise out of the way, so it'll be a few drinks (either some Pure Blonde, or some Aussie Sparkling Shiraz) and some quality time on the couch watching the cricket.

C'mon Aussie! :mrgreen:

I bought a Aussie Slang book for my hubby (he is an American, hence why we live there now) and there were words in it even I had never heard before!!

It's funny cause I have only been here a few months so its hard to stop using words like "dodgy" cause people over here have no idea what it means!!
