FraidKnot, I have a big "where are you from" problem! I always have answered the place I live (I'm from Illinois right now). Anything more gets WAY too complicated. A lot of people insist that I must have some place I consider "home", no matter where I am. Roll of eyes. I'm thinking of making an old fashioned sampler that says something on the order of home is where I hang my hat.

DH and I are both among those who struggle with the "where are you from" question....both "mongrels" and both born with a suitcase to follow our families with. This year our family Christmas cards went to every continent bar one, lol. But we were both born in England, and when I came "home" as a kid to go to school in the south o England, I knew it was HOME. Our family "estate" was sold years and years before I was born, but cmpletely by chance about five years ago I was visiting friends and I mentioned I just loved the landscape and thought it was beautiful, where upon the man of the house pointed at the hedgeline and said,"this would feel like home, your family home has always been about two miles in that direction!" There must have been some kind of genetic pull!

Dh was less sure. For him it has always been either England or Italy. After a few years not living in Italy moving back has been interesting. He says now England is home, but he will always feel culturally Florentine.

Edited to add, by strange coincidence in our families plans both DH and I were born in England, to answer the original question, lol

I was born in a hospital too, next door to the local zoo. I've got better and pretending I don't mind when everyone else in the family laughs at me about it. Anyway, interesting entry for Tipton in the UK in Wikipedia, YT2095. Amazing how much trivia gets in. I've just had a look at the entry for the last place I lived in the UK, Macclesfield, according to The Times newspaper the least cultured place in Britain. Oh well.
