|"They only met online, but it changed their lives forever"|
Today is the first Saturday in October....
which means today is posting day for
"The Alphabet Club" (TAC)
Cactus: useless, broken
Cackle Berries: a chicken egg. (ie "Mum, I'd like two cackle berries for brekkie, please.")
Chuck a wobbly: go berserk
Chuck a sickie: take the day off sick from work when you're perfectly healthy
Clicks: kilometres (ie 10 clicks / 10 kms)
Cobber: a mate or a friend
Come a cropper: to fall heavily
Cot case: a drunk or exhausted person only fit for bed
Cracking: excellent / get cracking - start something
Crow Eater: a fun name for a person from South Australia (that's me, sort of... I was born a Crow Eater... later on in the series of letters I will tell you what I am now!)
And if that wasn't enough for you, how about some of these pretty unique sayings:
Couldn't fight his way out of a wet paper bag
Couldn't peel skin off a custard (I love this one.... most of the time it gets applied to someone's car when it doesn't really have a lot of power and gets left behind at the traffic lights!)
So now I have to talk about Aussie food.... and sorry but there really is only one food that is worth mentioning on an Aussie "C" Day and that is the Chiko Roll!!
I love Chiko Rolls...... but then again I am a child of the late 60's and 70's!!
Ok... so that's the Aussie part of the post over and done with...
So how about an update on my chosen piece that I am stitching for this monthly blog post... "ABC Chats" from Les Brodeuses Parisiennes.
I was hoping to have finished "B" before posting... but that didn't happen! I have managed to stitch on "B" for the last couple of nights including last night (which was a Friday Frolics night)...
So the last time I showed you "B" it looked like this:
and now after last night it looks like this:
Well, that's it for today's Detention post... If you would like to join in the fun of "The Alphabet Club", pop over to Chiara's blog (The Grey Tail) to see what all the fun is about and link up your for post for the Letter "C".
See you next month when it will be Detention for the Letter "D".
Cheerio from me....
