"due to a "power outage"which i am told on answers is a american word for power cut."

It always amuses me at the small language differences there are between the Brits and our transatlantic cousins. Image
We say Hoover (brand name) - they say Vacuum Cleaner
We say path - they say Sidewalk (somehow a WWII sidewalk finder squadron
doesn't ring true Image)ImageImageImage
We say Maths - Why do they only have one math???? Image

I can't get my tongue round a 3 digit number without an "and" in the middle

Now....... rubbers and erasers ..... erm ........ ooer ...... don't think I'll even go there Image
I was laughing about all of this chatting with "TommysTune" on messenger the other night!!

Just a bit of gentle teasing folks Image

BTW... feeling much better today... around 75% recovery. Thanks to everyone that send me kind messages of support. It help.
