Maybe you would both be in agreement on that one - but sometimes heritage and background speaks volumes more than geographical place of birth!

I will admit I am half English, but as you say Badge, heritage and background can pay a very large part - hence I am half-Welsh and half-English

And right now I don't know whether to laugh, cry with frustration, or just slap you when I see you this weekI suspect I will be so glad to be home that you will get away unscathed, but I still want you to respect the fact that I am true to my heritage

Many years back Somerset was part of Wales. Probably before Polly was born but there you go. Pol, don't forget you are a third Aussie now.
