    To me creche is more short stay care like at a gym or something where they're only there for an hour or so. Daycare is for the full day (or a good chunk of it).

    Knickers or jocks
    Dagwood dog
    Little boys ( little hot dogs)
    Thongs for feet
    Gumboots
    Souvlaki or kebab depending who I'm talking to
    Milkbar ( when I was growing up was deli)
    Napkin for cloth serviette for paper
    Eski
    Potato cake

    I remember in primary school we had lead pencils but when I moved to vic my class called them grey leads... Looked at my funny if I said lead pencil

    And also daycare or crèche? Crèche drives me bonkers lol
    Omg I thought my Nan and dad were the only ones who referred to cocktail frankfurts as 'little boys'. I was never sure if it was a reference to the length compared to hotdogs or a euphemism for bottle boys privates! Anyway I don't use the term anymore but I think of it when thinking of them.

    I also say gumboots, milk bar and souvlaki. A souvlaki is shaved meat in a wrap, a kebab is meat and veg on a stick bbq'd (shaslik).

    I have that book too! It's great

    Yeah ok kebabs are meat and or veg etc whatever really on a stick. But the meat on a wrap I've always called them kebabs too maybe cause very where I have ever bought then they are always sold as kebabs. Surely and hopefully I'm not the only one ?

    Agree. Meat on stick is a shishkebab. Others call kebabs yiros

    No, not the only one. I agree with Indigo J- what others call kebabs are shishkebabs.

    In other parts of Aus they may be yiros, but here they are marketed as kebabs.. and even in Melb I see them sold as kebabs.

    We have kebabs here... "I went out Saturday night and ended up walking home with a dirty great big kebab"... where I used to live had a very heavy muslim population, and I swear we had the best kebabs in Australia.. now that we've moved, they're sub-standard.. I'm full of regret

    Everyone says nappies right, they don't say diapers?
    That's a corn dog! sorry if above you clarified!

    I never heard of a kebab until moving to London and here. But my mom always made shishkebabs (I would say shish-ke-bob) which was meat and veg on a stick.
