Welcome to my blog :)

Hi there! My name is Heather Brook and I live in New Zealand. Originally from the UK I seem to have lost the accent a tad. I am trying this whole 'blog' thing out because I seem to enjoy writing and sharing my stories :) Now, I'm not sure generally what I am supposed to be writing about on here, so I will just tell you a little bit about the life of Heather so far!

As you have read, I come from England but my family and I immigrated to New Zealand when I was 8 years of age. From living in Manchester to moving to Auckland, my life changed drastically! I didn't realise the full impact of this move until I was about 12. Things were a lot different compared to the UK, like people from New Zealand replace the e's in a word to i's. As in 'pen' they would pronounce it as 'pin' and I could not get the hang of it at first but I adapted to the language :) Coming from the UK I was used to such cold weather temperatures but when I came to New Zealand it was another story totally! The weather is beautiful in NZ and they have the loveliest coasts, that is something I could only get in Blackpool, a beach. Still, the beach we always went to never had any sun shed on it. Everything in New Zealand was utterly confusing to me, like the kids always seemed to go to school with no shoes on. WHAT. This came as a surprise to my family because you would have never seen anything like this in England. There are pro's and con's to England and NZ but I now class NZ as my home and I love everything about it.

Now me, I found a few questions from the 'all about me' tag:
