I had an email a while ago, from a lovely American lady, asking me why I called myself OziMum?!
I thought this was hilarious, as I thought it was very obvious... apparently not!!! No, I'm not a fan of Ozzy Osbourn, or Ozzie the Ostrich that used to be on Australian TV! Ozi, is the sound that Aussie makes! The American lady was quite amazed as she pronounced Aussie as O-see!
I did make a little video of me, giving a "how to speak Australian" lesson... but for some reason my (cheap a$$) camera made me sound like I had a lisp. I'm pretty sure I don't have a lisp... but maybe I do, and have never noticed?!!! So I'm not showing the video. Plus I look hideous, I haven't washed my hair for 3 days (keep the straightening to a minimum!) and I was "shiny" coz it's hot!!!
Hopefully, I've cleared up some "missed in translation" issues... I'm an Ozi. Not an Osee. Here in Australia, we just make our own rules up, about language! No wonder my kids have some much trouble spelling?!!!
