Still a Brit' at heart
Despite now having lived here for nearly 3.5 years and being on my way to Citizenship, I still cling to some British aspects of life. I automatically convert dollars to pounds before I spend any money! It's like an inbuilt calculator I cannot switch off!. I still start every single day with a hot mug of tea, always PG Tips. I still regularly refer to the restroom as the 'loo' in private. I soon got out of the habit of asking for the loo in public, due to all the blank stares I encountered. But when I am at home, work or at a friends it's still 'I am just popping to the loo'!And of course, I still have my British accent despite a few new words.
