Finally made it to the last page!
Either port or suitcase
Hair band or bobble
Jaffle if it's sealed, toasted sandwich if it's not
Depending on what size I'm ordering either a middie, a schooner, or a pint
Carton of beer
Evening meal is dinner, day time meal is lunch
A texta is for colouring in, otherwise permanent marker or white board marker
Doona and doona cover, however I consider a quilt and duvet to be something different
Thongs for shoes and g string for underwear.
Here's a question - forehead or forid? (Probably spelt wrong)
Or napkin vs serviette?

I grew up playing on the 'slippery dip' at the park in a small country NSW town and had to retrain myself to say 'slide' when I moved to ACT.
My family also called Jaffles 'brevilles' which DH finds ridiculous because that's a brand.
My previous boss was from The UK and used to talk about 'push chairs' which would drive me nuts. It's a pram.
My lounge is in the lounge room.
My bed has a doona.
I wear joggers.
The thought of someone wearing a shoe on their backside is hilarious to me- thong=shoe.

I used to say napkin. Recently I've been trying to change my ways to 'serviette'
