    Haha, you're probably in the same boat as me, I've been here 7 years and still always learning random names of things! DH comes up with some shockers. I refuse to conform sometimes, I hate it if I catch myself saying 'mobile' or 'boot!'

I call them poppers lol and that gave the lady on the cloth nappy place a good laugh, apparently I 'am soooo English' lol. Also cozzie instead of bathers and crisps not chips. Chips to me are hot. Donna was confusing (we call it covers or duvet) and runners (trainers). Think that's all I have trouble with at the moment lol starting to grasp it all!

    I will never be able to do dah-tah (day-ta) cause it just sounds silly to me lol and in the UK you can have a root around meaning look for something. A route (root) which is the way to go to get somewhere and a router (root-er) which is how you connect to the Internet
    I agree with all of the above, LaDiDah!

    And it's clingfilm instead of gladwrap too.

    Does anyone's parents call paper towel 'scotts towel'???

    My parents both say scotts towel when they are talking about paper towel. I'm wondering if they're the only weirdos who say it

    Yes! I wore one with my desert boots. I was born in NSW in the 70s too - glad you know rainboots too, I was beginning to think it was just me.
