My son has a school trip to France next year.

My mum was telling us she went on a school trip to France when she was about the same age (11). She spent a lot of the week chatting with one girl in particular. Towards the end of the week she asked the girl which part of France she came from to which the girl replied ................. 'Glasgow'

I can soooo relate to that. I was born in Chadwell Heath which is in the London Borough of Redbridge although the postal address is Romford (London Borough of Havering), Essex.

If I say I'm from East London I'm damned, if I say I'm from Essex I'm damned. :D

OH's Mum is full off these, she's going to Tresemme for a new top (TK Maxx), or fullham's for some pies (Heron's). She's mad as a hatter with things like this. OH does it a lot too. Get's words wrong, or uses them in the wrong context, I just chuckle and usually leave it a few days before I correct them, it's cute. DS has started it too.

We were in a Greek Restaurant once and my Mum pointed to an unfamiliar dish on the Menu, asking the waiter,

"Is this hot?"

The waiter looked confused and didn't reply.

"Eeeesa deeees hot?" my Mum said loudly, in her best 'Greek'.

The waiter still looked confused, then asked,

"Do you mean hot as in heated or as in pungent madam?" in a cut-glass English accent.

When he had gone out to the kitchen, I laughed at her so much I had to go to the loo.

LOVE IT! I love it when people think adding an accent and speaking louder and slower helps. My brother-in-law added 'ico' or 'io' to all words in Italy as a joke and luckily the waiters etc found it funny. We had fantastica, yummio, beerio, ice-creamico...luckily he's one of those people who gets away with it - otherwise I dread to think what sneezers we got lol x
