Lingo







Red Otter lingo:

heaps: an expression to signify a great quantity; often used in conjunction with chocolate, walks, and hugs from Andrew

hobnobs: rolled oat tea biscuits dipped in chocolate, great with Lady Grey tea or Black Current tea

chippies: corn or potato chips; delicious paired with lemon Perrier

I know your lingo! I think because I read too many british books. Although you aren't british (right?), so I don't know where you get it from.

How sweet, the word "chippie" is used round here in reference to other gals, other loves... perhaps it comes from the dutch...

Live with a charming Brit and "hobnobs" are a favourite! Lovely post, especially the top image, which have used as well, and is a favourite -- so soft and pretty.
