Today was a big day for me.

5 1/2 years after arriving in the UK, I am now officially British.

I had my citizenship ceremony today. It was a quiet affair in the local council chambers with about 20 others doing the same.

It felt a bit odd, it’s taken so long to get here and been a fair bit of work so this felt like just another step.

Given it doesn’t change our daily lives in anyway, it’s easy to forget how significant this is.

I’m allowed dual citizenship with NZ so from here on in I’m half and half.

Now off out for a pint with the NCT boys, what could be more British?
