From Weekend Writing Prompt

Yard means a different thing to people living outside of the UK. It is rarely used here. It was a unit of measurement. In the USA it is talked about in yard sales. Totally different. UK – garden rather than a yard. There are so many colloquialisms. Side walk (curb) chips (crisps). In the UK chips are fried, or oven baked.

It doesn’t stop there.

Words are the same but mean a different thing (watch)

Better watch what I say or a few eggs will be broken.

I am a fifty something mother of two grown up children, and one beautiful grandchild. I have been married for nearly thirty-four years. My first book was published ten years ago. I wrote my book Sticks and Stones because of my experience of being bullied at school.
