When I started blogging I never realised that it would be such a global arena. I have noticed friends and followers from more exotic parts of the world have been a little baffed by some of the 'lingo' (language) I use in my posts. 'Aussies' have a reputation for being carefree, relaxed, happy-go-lucky with an entire vocab of words (slang) only understood by fellow Australians.
So to help out our friends from across the globe here are few translations :-
aussie (pronounced ozzie) = Australian
g'day = hello
thongs = flipflips
mate = friend
rashie = lycra t-shirt for beach / swimming
barbie = barbequee
prawn = shrimp
bloke = guy / man
icy poles = popsicle
bathers = swimming costume, togs, cossie
fairdinkum' = no kidding
The list goes on but these are few that may pop up in my posts from time to time.
