Learning Bobbish

A few weeks ago, my lovely young Swiss friend, Miriam (Mimi) came to stay with her dad, Bob. Bob was born in Australia but has lived so long in Switzerland that he has practically forgotten how to speak English, to such an extent that his family tease him by saying he speaks,Bobbish, which is a mix of Swerman (Swiss German) and English. He retains his wonderful down to Earth Ozzyism by even calling his daughter ‘mate’. Mimi was researching Mary, Queen of Scots, for an essay she was doing for university and we had a wonderful week exploring castles, palaces and abbeys connected with this romantic, but tragic figure.
