    Yes, you know they're not listening to what you're saying at all. Their eyes are all glazed over & all they're doing is listening to your accent.

    She made toast squares and handed them out for a taste test for the locals that were there one lunchtime. Reaction was mixed lol. She LOVED it so I gave it to her. As I was returning in a few days I felt my withdrawal symptoms would not be too bad.

    OT It was so funny that vegemite was banned there but aussies could bring it in for "personal use" Something to do with folate levels.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.
