A good laugh...

Hi girls.. just read the funniest article on Houzz and thought I'd share it with you and if that wasn't enough the comments are even funnier.
It's all about how in many English speaking countries we can all call the same thing a different name, and I am sure we all have come across this at some time from reading different blogs from around the world!
I can vouch for this myself (I am in Australia but raised in Malta) when I once blogged about my pink serviettes and another lovely lady blogger from the US asked if I was referring to 'napkins'.... it never occurred to me to call them that even though I'm sure many Aussies do.
So go on have a gander or a sticky or even just a look....and click here if you want to have a good laugh!



                                                                     take care, Maryann
ps...    if you live in Australia I thought the comments about the dunny are hilarious!!!!!
