Cold

Well, usually - I've heard it's quite warm there at the mo.

Am I the first to use the same word in both threads?

Oh, Mrs JTL beat me to it! In that case, I'll go for ...

In lots of ways - the ties that bind an' that. (Although, pride was a close second choice.)

Some song about a yellow taxi springs to mind.

Couldnt decide between

'Homeland'

and

'Abused'

I love it because it will always be home, but feel sad because of how much it has changed since I was a kid.

Sorry, when JTL said Roots I thought he was being smutty

Where I come from, it's dead easy to get a root!!

Hectic

It's all about what you have, what the latest thing is and dashing around to get it.

However I also feel very sentimental about the UK and I would also call it cosy... like a comfy old jumper.

Another negative - status. I'm thinking of snotty posh people who control the status quo and think they are better than the rest of the country. I'm not saying there aren't any in Aus but there are a great deal less.
