I was listening to the Sports' news on the car radio tonight on the way to Beavers and Sunbeams... A strong Liverpool accent came out with: 'We just need to get Suarez back on the right track'. Anna asked in all seriousness: 'Mummy what language is the man with the funny voice talking?!'
Now here's an idea. Given we haven't booked a holiday this year, we could simply nip down to the Wirral with our big tent and tell (at least) the three little ones that we are abroad given they would think the natives weren't speaking English! I must say it made me smile. I spent most of my teenage summers in Liverpool and on the Wirral (my high school friend moved there are 14) so it is probably the English accent I am most accustomed to!
