Being English....

When asked to define my nationality I would answer Scottish, then at a push British...I can't remember the last time I defined myself as English. Added to having lived overseas all my life I thought that I had possibly received a bit of an "International makeover"...How wrong could I be!

Having started Watching the English by Kate Fox, I realise that the small amount that I have read thus far pegs me as well and truly English - and that is just Greetings, Goodbyes and discussing the Weather!

The book is actually laugh out loud funny and so incredibly accurate - I cannot recommend it highly enough for anyone who is either English or must deal with the English at very close quarters!
