You know you're in.....

Recommended Posts

....Devon when you get delayed by stray sheep on a lane, have to catch a bedraggled spaniel trotting along another lane and find someone who might know who it belongs to and when you have to spend 15 min over 3 phone calls directing a haulier to your site who is all the time cursing the ridiculously tiny little roads. Oh, and it's raining. But it's really really warm for December! 😄

 

Go on - what defines your home? You know you're in.....

Yep that pretty much sums it up 😀 Only difference is being on the moors the sheep are supposed to be on the lanes but that doesn't stop visitors alerting you to them. They dont really get it when you point out the cattle grids they have driven over getting here.

 

I love our county

(from when we were north of the wall)

 

Scotland when the locals talk about the weather being "no too bad" which means only that it's not raining. It could be grey, blowing a gale and 10 degrees below freezing, but if it's not raining, it's OK.

You know you're in Surrey when you pull over to let an ambulance through and someone pulls out and drives on towards the ambulance.

Y also KWYI Surrey when you to stop to cut up a fallen branch that is blocking one half of the road (just a pruning saw job) so that everyone can get home for their tea and someone in a 4x4 drives down the side of the waiting traffic and actually runs over the branch that you're dragging out of the way!

Then you want to ask here what she was doing in Surrey and check her bank card statements...

I was joking Stu.

Her chain is only long enough to get from the kitchen to the bedroom.

You're a thougherly modern man Mark, most chains keep them closer to the sink.
