How Stereotypically British Is Your Grandmother?
So your grandmother may not be super stereotypically British, but she still loves her flowery teapots and her uncomfortable sofa, and has an incredibly old yet well cared-for woollen coat. Waste not want not!
Your grandmother may not admit it, but she definitely has more than a few stereotypically British things about her. Maybe she hates the royal family, but LOVES Prince Harry – or hates knitting, but loves her tartan trolley and saving up chicken bones. It's only sensible!
Your granny is extremely, deeply, PAINFULLY British. She still cooks like it's wartime, has a hand-knitted version of everything, and the only thing she loves more than boiled potatoes is the royal family. She could never live anywhere else.
