a northwest family moves to the UK

Wikipedia to the rescue June 16, 2010

A superb four bedroomed FURNISHED modern detached house situated in this sought after village location with highly regarded schools nearby. . . it offers hall, cloakroom (w.c & basin) living room and dining room, attractive fitted kitchen with oven, hob and extractor.

I didn’t expect house hunting to require the use of Google Translator, but I am officially adding that to my ever-growing list of misconceptions about moving to England.

The w.c. is short for water closet (toilet) and a basin is a sink, but I was imagining that something out of a Quentin Tarantino film could be found in the kitchen before Wikipedia came to the rescue. A hob is the cooking surface on top of an oven and an extractor is the range hood. Whew.
