it's as though a venn diagram was drawn, y'know circles around the places our accents and from and where we live now.
The overlapping shape must have been the midlands.

Anybody else have the same problem or know what the hell is going on?

Presumably for the same reason that all four of our children speak with a West Country accent when their parents are from Essex and Birmingham!

Dd1 started Reception this month - their adored teacher is from Yorkshire. There is suddenly a lot of 'well I'll go to't foot of our stairs' stuff going on in south Dorset grin.

it's kind of brummie, but with the student lilt that goes up at the end, where everything sounds like a question.

perhaps a new child or teacher from there?
