I'm in Australia, but my parents are English. So I have ended-up with a bit of a mixed vocab. We also have regional differences between states.
South Aust -- Translation Dungarees -- trousers with bib and brace Handbag -- womens bag whether over shoulder or clutch Purse -- womens equivalent of a wallet Soft drink -- fizzy, pop, soda Pram/stroller -- push chair, baby carriage Jocks -- boys underwear Undies -- girls underwear Lemonade -- a soft drink not made with lemons Lollipop -- a lolly on a stick, traditionally a boiled sweet but now anything is possible. Bugger -- not an expletive, just a term used for emphasis Bloody -- same as above Fag -- a derogatory term for a homosexual (sucking on a fag is not really something you would go up and say to people here in general).
Ideas for presents:- some of the cool goth type chokers that have been on the forum A stenciled t-shirt or goth mini with her favourite band/singer on it. A cool bag with a goth design to carry her stuff around in.
Ideas for the pinata:- Quick black velvet ribbon chokers, temporary tattoos of spiders, dragon, etc.
