Oh Mags, Kiwi girl, you do! I used to go out with a Kiwi diver working in UK and his accent was wonderful.
Mine is Norfolk but with a bit of Buckinghamshire in cos my Dad never quite lost his accent despite living in Norfolk for over 40 years but I have been mistaken for an Aussie before now lol
Because I worked as a p.a. and a receptionist/telephonist among other jobs, I think I have lost a bit of the broadness of the Norfolk accent but if I am talking to broad people it comes back lol
I also tend to pick up an Essex or London accent when with friends from there.

Derby, Leicester, Swansea, London, West Midlands - all of left their mark on the way I talk, especially if I am talking to Welsh people. Also spend a lot of time among Irish people so have some Irish 'tics' in my speech as well. With that plus the Belgian and Bengali in my lineage, I guess I'm a bit of a mongrel!
