About a week ago BK1 spent the whole day outside playing with a boy from her school who lives in our street. I was outside with BK2 at the same time and obviously met the boy's mother and we had a chat.
At one point, she said: "your childrens' English is so good!"
I like that, obviously.
I said: "yeah, that's because I don't speak English with them at all."
I could see the cogs moving in her head, then she smiled.
"Good Stockport accent, isn't it?" I said, and she agreed: "it is a lovely Stockport accent!"
