It has come to my attention of late that I may, just may be feeling at home in Australia. Over the 18 months we have been here there have been many things that have helped such as the Bunnings love tokens of leaf blowers and chainsaws, I have started to say arvo, yeah no yeah, putting 'as' at the end of things such as..cheap as, cool as and slab when describing things. I went to a childrens party and knew everyone but this and possibly the most serious of all......we are thinking about buying a trailer, surely that makes me part Ozzie???:biglaugh:

 

What did it for you?

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

ha ha yet to do that one Cal, I still make the fairy bread with the no artificial colour 100's & 1000's which kinda gets away from the spirit of it ;)

 

I remember nearly passing out when I first came across fairy bread, my son thought it was Christmas lol. Don't forget the party pies!

Hi Michelle

Yep your a true Ozzie now lol.


If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

Hi Michelle

Yep your a true Ozzie now lol.

 

Not until she uses the word "but" frequently as in "it was as good as but"

 

When asked a question, she also has to prefix her answer with "look" :biggrin:

 

Look, the trailer gives her an extra two points but, so she can consider herself almost there so she's neat as. :biglaugh:

Yes Michelle, You have to have a trailer because then when people move we call trailer people up and they become your best friends. I will be putting my house up for sale soon so can I make a booking:laugh:oh and as long as you drive like a madperson when it's hooked up to the car (hopefully a 4WD) then you will be truly Australian.

Geoffery thank you so much!!!! I hadn't realised there was an art to cutting the bread. DO you think I will get away with one of those added fibre white breads??? :err:

Not moving far are you?

Beautiful area, Wonga park is really nice and they are not allowing any more sub division of plots so it will for now at least remain lovely and spacious.

 

Park Orchards is nice and you already know Warrandyte, let me know how you get on.

Oh Help!!

 

We FEEL so Australian, and I even have the passport, but we have failed - and miserably!!

 

I have no idea how to use the Queensland "But". I have been mulling this over all this past week, and I have NO IDEA!!

 

I had never heard of fairy bread, and the very thought of what I have just seen in that link makes me want to throw up.

 

We don't yet own a 4x4, a trailer nor a ute (although OH really wants the latter!!)

 

I don't say g'day - ever!

 

I still hear the checkout staff say "howya goin" and think they might respond when I say "good thanks, and how are you?"

 

I still live in hope that if I carry on (4eva!) driving courteously and letting people into my lane, then one day they will catch on and do it too (no really, I do think that might happen one day!!)

 

And I still think lorikeets are cute and special, so we feed them - much to the annoyance of the kids next door (dad says it's ok though - we have checked!)

 

Do you think I will ever be a true blue Aussie?:no:

 

 

 

HOWEVER - our friends and family keep on saying how proud they are of us for having fit in so well, so quickly. I guess they probably feel there are a few rough UK edges to be knocked off soon!

Dear oh Dear, Oh dear, I am shaking my head, you have been here a few months now you must try harder 100 lines!

 

Fairy bread will get you in the end! Driving well...... I don't say G'day, it just don't sound right when I say it ;)

 

keep trying! As for being proud, well quite right too.

Does anyone know if they can be bought in Aussie shops?

Maybe the closest is Arnott's Spicy Fruit Roll (found in the sweet biscuit section of any supermarket).

Yes you are an honourary Ozzie Alan, and obviously you have had quote for a personalised trailer for your goodself. I have been looking at some bridges around the local area, and found one where there's a bit of room for one of those type of trailers underneath it, and there's a creek so you could fish and fend for yourself, the water is also drinkable although it dries up in the summer. You know you're always welcome in this magnificent country Alan, and when you come through customs you just flash the shi7man passport stamped "will fit in" and you go with priority through the gate. Loving you as always, your friends down under:tongue:
