I was born and live in the midlands. The rest of my family are geordies.

My husband, again, was born in the midlands but his family are, on his mums side, a bizarre mixture of Italian and Egyptian.

Born and raised on Scotland. Quarter Irish which makes me eligible to play for them internationally at football....

DH born and raised in Scotland, rural NE Scotland for about 1,000 generations.

3 DDs all born in the same hospital in Aberdeen. They are 1/16 th Irish, which isn't enough to play international football for them.

And despite all that, we really aren't nationalists at all!!!
