re: wife in the north
I have been reading this blog 'Wife in the North' (now subject to a £££ book deal & mentioned in the Sunday Times) for a couple of weeks now & I think I can safely say I will NOT be buying the book. There is a limit to the amount of 'north bashing' I can take & I am NOT a northerner by birth. I have only lived in the 'north' for 31 1/2 years so I am clearly an 'off-cumden' but really......!!!! If its so bad then s** off! It is good geography though.... cause & effect of migration, types of migration, perception of places -especially a southerners view of the north, infact I found the blog via a comment on a geography teachers forum. My upper sixth group will shortly directed to browse the blog. That will be interesting! There are a few 'died in the wool' yorkshire folk in the group plus some migrants from the south! Talking of yorkshire folk.... that will be Mr J (the elder & the younger)... haven't directed them to it yet!!!!
