Mum gave me this yesterday and I absolutely cracked up! I can tell i’m going to have endless fun with this during the build up and once I get to Aus.
It took a while for Mum and Dad to come round to the idea that I was disappearing for a year and only recently are they starting to engage in more conversations about me going. They’ve always been supportive but I’ve not long been back from 3 years at uni and I think they secretly love having me around!
Of course I will miss them like crazy too and this present really made me realise that its going to be the little things that I will miss.
Apart from the obvious ones like thongs being flip flops, one of my favourites is that household linen in Aus is known as manchester! Not sure how true they are but I will try them out and let you know how I get on!
It works both ways because I can’t wait to test the Aussie’s on their knowledge and introduce them to some Mancunian slang!
P.s Tomorrow marks 14 weeks till the big day!
