I Can Only Speak The English Language :)

I am so fed up with some folk!  :(

Why is it that when people look at my photograph (particularly on the internet) do they automatically assume that  I speak a foreign  language/with an EU accent! *TUTS*

It is only within the past few years, ever since we became part of the EU, that I have been confused for not understanding/speaking the language here in England, fluently.

For your information, I can only speak the English language!  It is indeed the first and only language I speak. I mostly grew up in England although my Father was in the British Royal Air Force and we did live abroad for a few years during my childhood. 

I learnt a little school girl French when I was at school, however I gave it up in the 3rd year in order to learn how to use the typwriter during an office procedures course. I learnt how to type whilst I was still at school. A few of us attended the Stamford College for further education just for one day a week. We learnt to type on a typewriter and we were not as lucky as folk are today, particularly since they invented the computer. If  you make a mistake, you can easilly go back and correct it whereas we had carbon copies and rubbers, it was more of an inconvenience to make mistakes. We learnt the hard way. It seemed far more useful to me to learn office procedures at the time.:)

It is true. I do have a naturally brown skin (a slightly dark olive skin tone), however I do not sit underneath the sunbeds, nor do I use any artificial sun lotions in order to colour my skin. My colour is genetic, yes, I was born this way. :)
