  1. I enjoy your observations about us Graham. They make me more aware. We’re often oblivious to our cultural characteristics.
    One of the things I find difficult to deal with is people’s suspicion when you say something nice. Compliments are met with ‘you must want something’, as if you couldnt possibly have something genuinely nice to say.

    • Hahaha! 😄 I know what you mean. I don’t necessarily like to post things that could be taken negatively so try to balance it a bit…it’s just kind of weird even though we all speak English eh? 🙂

      • I know. I have an English friend who has been in NZ longer than in England and she still seems so foreign sometimes. In a good way of course. 🙂

        • Life would be dull if we were all the same…that’s one reason I didn’t come here to hang around with more British ex-pats.
