Fair Dinkum Mate!


Photo credit Kath and Kim are coming to the big screen soon :)

I have, what you would call, a broad Australian accent. So I have decided to try and refine my speech before our holiday.

On the way to work this morning, I was quite insulted when Mr T likened me to ‘Kath and Kim’. I’d like to think I am more Kim than Kath..hehehe. I have a particular way of saying the number nine; I say ‘Noiyne’ and draw the sound out a bit. Right, I’ll show him, so I shortened it to the proper pronunciation and then he was like ‘What?’ he couldn’t understand me at all…hahaha

I’ll never forget the one day while buying some paint at Bunnings, I was talking to the guy behind the counter while it was mixing, and he asked if I was English; being English himself. I was like ‘What?? No, but my mum is’. I told my mum, who nearly fell off her chair in laughter, as she always says that I speak as rough as guts and I sound like I am from the outback.

So today, I am going to try to sound less like ‘Kath and Kim’, and more like the Queen.
