When you least expect it!
Posted on November 25, 2008 by pacificyorkshirebird
I never blog twice in one day, but I have to today. I just had to tell someone that in one of the places I least expected to find another American woman – I found one at 9:15 this morning. She’s from California and she’s been here 16 years! In fact, she misses America so much she doesn’t go home to visit because she knows if she does she might not come back to Yorkshire and she’s got a son here to look after. I even said to her “You are not from Yorkshire are you?” When she realised I wasn’t either her face softened and it was like we were immediate friends.
She also said she cried for the first 2 years living here. And you won’t believe the exact words she said next: “It took a long time for people here to warm up to me. Its like they used to look at me like I’m from outer space!”
I might try to give her an anonymous link to this blog. She might find some comfort in knowing she isn’t alone. I do!
