There’s no hiding the fact that us Brits like to have a good moan. But sometimes you don’t always really realise how good you had it until it’s gone. This is definitely the case since emigrating to America, I took things in the UK for granted and now I’d do anything to get them back!
I was born in England, I lived there for 28 years, I am British. So how comes when I emigrated to America, I feel like I’ve become even more British…if that’s even possible? It’s like the longer I’m away, the more British I become. Maybe it’s that I’ve become more patriotic? As soon as I open my mouth and people realise I’m not a local, it’s like I become a British ambassador, answering their questions, telling them what it’s like to live there. But then I’m also surrounding myself with little things that remind me of home, I guess trying to create myself a miniature England.
