Tough bickies! (tough luck, hard luck) - too bad!
By crikey! - when I hear this, I feel that what the next sentence the person is about to say is important, and is usually a command of some sort e.g. - 'By crikey, you had better clean your room, and if you don't, you won't get to play. Tough bickies if it takes you all day!'
Brekky - Breakfast
Ambo - Ambulance
Servo - Service Station
Arvo - Afternoon
Litte lunch/ big lunch - morning tea, lunch
Pigs - police
ciggys - cigarettes
dobber - someone who reports the bad behaviour of someone else (rhymes with robber)
bicky (sing.) bickies (pl.) - biscuits, cookies
hiding, a - to be hit
fill up - to fill up with petrol
tummy - stomach
coz - because
I also never used to pronounce the 'g' in 'ing', the 't' in 'just' e.g. I was jus' readin'
Sometimes, some Māori words would be used in the sentence as well -
puku - stomach
mimi - to urinate
kai - to eat, food
An example of all the words in usage -
G'day, how are you? This'arvo I was at the servo, and an ambo pulled up to fill up. I was jus' standin there readin', and these pigs jus' drove past'us!. Well, someone had dobbed someone else in, I reckon. My tummy's been saw, since brekky. I tried eatin' somethin' for little lunch, but it was still sore. Then came big lunch, and my puku was still hurtin'. I was sad, coz I liked the kai I had with me. My kai I had were bickies! My brother got another hidin' today, coz he was having ciggys! I thought to myself, by crikey, tough bickies if you get a hidin' from dad, you deserve it, for smoking them ciggys. I reckon my brother almost mimi'd himself.
