In England it’s normal to drink tea. It is a very English tradition, and we are known for it all over the world. I like to make a cup of tea when I get up, before I even eat breakfast. I also like another cup of tea halfway through the afternoon, afternoon tea, as it’s commonly known, but that is all, just 2 cups of tea a day.

When I visit America, I have discovered they really know how to make a good cup of coffee. We can’t match it, but maybe that is because it is their national drink, just like tea is ours. I enjoy coffee after a meal, it seems to make it more digestible, so I drink 3 cups of coffee a day, one after each meal.

The Brits used to be known for our love of bacon and eggs for breakfast, and most bed and breakfast places will serve it if asked, although most people when at home seem to opt for cereal and toast as a typical meal.

When I am on holiday, I enjoy what is known as a continental breakfast. Fresh bread with butter and jam, fruit, yogurt and even a pastry makes a nice change, and is very tasty to eat.

So I am not typically British. I drink tea twice a day, and coffee in between, and for breakfast I eat fresh french bread , butter and jam, washed down with coffee, and I also eat plenty of fruit. I also tend to eat fish rather than meat, which is like Mediterranean countries, and it’s very rare for me to eat bacon and egg. I experience a little bit of all these cultures, because a little bit of what you fancy does you good.
