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!
When I emigrated to America, I managed to land myself a job in a school! But there’s a slight problem…there are words we say in England that aren’t used in America which has resulted in several strange looks from students wondering what on earth I’m talking about! I’m trying my hardest to say the ‘correct’ word but there’s some that are just stuck and I say the British word out of habit!
I find it amazing that no matter where you are within the UK, you are never more than 70 miles away from the sea. Growing up in Essex it was always such a treat to spend a Saturday afternoon either in Clacton or Southend, me and my Sister used to beg to go! Granted, they aren’t the nicest seaside towns in Britain, there are some really lovely ones around the country, but they still had all the things that make British seaside towns great, even though they may be a little tacky and outdated, I love them.
