    When I lived in England, my flatmate (also Australian) used to work for a law firm, so had to dress well every day. Well one day she wore a skirt instead of her usual trousers. Some of her English colleagues noticed and asked why. She told them she didn't have any clean pants and they almost died of shock. Pants in England are undies

    A pot is quite a bit smaller than a pint.

    Haven't read to the end yet but I was pretty sure durex was a brand of condom here too.

    And with the others ....
    Poppers
    Pop tops
    Togs
    Flip flops

    Also, what do people call the show? A in the one that come to town once a year? It's always been the ---- show to me. When I was in someone asked me when the fate was on. I had no idea what they were on about.

    You mean like agricultural show, with rides, show bags, dog jumping, needlework etc? It's 'The [town name] show' usually, but sometimes there is another word thrown in there, like spring etc.

    A fete to me is a smaller affair, associated with churches and primary schools and primarily held as a fundraiser

    Not sure if it's been said but DP calls toasted sandwiches jaffles. It's weird.

    A few I can remember from what people have mentioned that I say...
    Cozzies or swimmers, popper, pop top, doona, undies, lounge, scallops, joggers (shoes that you run in), pants, esky, thongs (for feet), jumper.

    I have to translate for DS1 a lot when my grandparents say some things. They are from England and Norway so say trousers, settee, things like that.

    I found it really amusing when DP's cousins were over from England and would say something was "well good" or that it was "half 3" (instead of 3:30).

    I would call the 'show' a 'fair'. And I call a toasted sandwich a 'grill cheese.' It's like we speak a completely different language!
