  3. Are you eating beetroot with every meal?
  4. Do you prefer over-sugary, milky lard as your cadbury's chocolate?
  5. Do you mispronounce 'maroon', 'marone'?
  6. Have you got a mullet?
  7. Is "throwing a sickie" becoming a fundamental part of your working week now?
  8. Have you got a chip on your shoulder?
  9. and finally, are you becoming a touchy bugger whenever anyone dares to criticise God's own Australia?

If you answered yes to any of the above, then yes, you are.

Well i must be on my way to becoming an Aussie:

1 i love tomato suace with all my savoury pastries (pies, sausage rolls etc)
2 i love beetroot especially on my burgers
3 i call worktops, benchtops(pointed out to me the other day by my hubby)
4 i say light globe instead of lightbulb
5 i call sweets "lollies"
6 I quite often say chips instead of crisps
7 The local RSL feels like my 2nd home
8 i can be quite often found moaning about the price of petrol(18 mths ago couldn't understand what the problem was as it seemed cheap compared with the UK)

If i am becoming more Aussie what is the problem i love the Aussie way of life and that is why i have emigrated here .

Poshrice Turning Aussie and proud of it
