    I'll start:

    "Wow.. this is a really nice flat. Is it insulated?"

    "It's 20 degrees on a December summer day? What I wouldn't give to be sipping a flat white by the chilly bin in my jandals!"

    "Have you lost your shoes at school again?"
    "Where are the kids? Oh, down at the wharf? No worries."
    "We really need to organise our wood pile."
    "Oh yeah, I know her, that's my husband's sister's husband's sister-in-law."
    "Sorry, I can't buy that $50 sheep you're selling because my freezer is full of sausages for the sausage sizzle."
    "Sure, I'll go floundering with you even though you caught a 2.5 metre wide sting ray last time."

    I could go on and on...
