Brit' Word of the Day....

This is one some of you might already know, but around here I get blank looks everytime I say it, which is often as it's a very common expression in the UK!

"Can I make my next appointment in a fortnight"


'Fortnight' = 2 weeks

It is actually an abbreviated version of 'fourteen nights'


This is a very handy little expression!

Hello, I have just found your blog and am laughing at this expression. I am from Australia and we use this often too. It's funny because I never would have thought that people would think this phrase is unusual!
