Speaking the Language!

by Yvonne

I came to Australia from Scotland 17 years ago and I thought Australians spoke English until I was talking to a patient and telling them about my two wee ones (children) pronounced "wains". The patient looked at me with disbelief and asked "why would you call both your children Wayne!" Guess Australian is not English after all!
