So this week kind of marked a momentous occasion for me…
I’ve been living in Yorkshire for two whole years….
That’s a long time. Ok maybe not compared to my 20 years spent in Lancashire but with the amount of changing and growing up I’ve had to do, it’s a lot to fit in to two years. Some momentous stuff has happened here- I went abroad by myself (fully aware Barcelona is not in Yorkshire but the idea was born here and I packed my suitcase here!) I went to my first Gay Pride festival (albeit a very low key Gay Pride festival. Bravo Bradford- it’s the thought that counts) I argued with a Spanish person on my doorstep, attempted to unblock a drain by shoving a skewer down it…
My life is one adventure after another.
Plus, I get to watch some pretty nice sunsets out of my window…
And I’m very happy right now, I’m finally getting into a place where I can call myself ‘settled.’
But I wonder…do people see me as a Yorkshire Lass?
I hope not, for starters, the word lass makes me want to simultaneously cringe and hit someone with a red rose.
But! I still feel this needs testing, so I turned to my good friend Buzzfeed who provide quizzes on everything! Including how Yorkshire you are! The way you are tested on how Yorkshire you are is by ticking whether you’ve done certain things, said things include but are not limited to…
- Calling someone ‘love’
- Feeling ‘groggy’
- Having ‘dinner’ at 1pm
Nothern thing- not Yorkshire thing!
- Thanking a bus driver
Are people rude everywhere else? You should always thank your bus drivers people!
- Calling someone you like a Dickhead
- Paying less than a fiver for a pint
- Eaten a Yorkshire pudding as a starter
There is nothing wrong with a Yorkshire pudding and gravy as a starter…
So there were 80 ‘things’ to say you’ve done and I got 26…
Which means I’m not especially Yorkshire!
I prefer to think of myself as a dusty pink rose…
In other news! Check this out!
LOOK HOW CUTE!
So to sum up…
I can’t unblock a sink, I’m not very Yorkshire but Beagles are cute.
And- you should always, always, thank you bus driver!
Have a nice evening!
