Where are you from?
I inwardly groan when I’m asked this question. Who knew it could be so complicated? Generally speaking, it’s any easy question for most people. Where you were born, right?
I look English, I speak English, I even dress English and yes my family is English too. But I didn’t live in an English house until I was in my teens. Weird right? So it’s already a little more complicated than your average Englishman (or woman).
I may be from England, the midlands to be precise, but that doesn’t mean I grew up there. In fact my hometown was as alien to me as ET and just to complicate matters further, I never truly lived there, as the moment I set foot on English soil, I embarked on the boarding school journey. But that’s another story for a different time.
