I may be getting into BLTP type territory here - but some villages, rivers and streets have the chirpiest, cheeriest names. So cosy they could have been dreamt up by Enid Blyton - places like......
Broughton Poggs - should surely have been a character in The Flumps.
Hatfield Pevrel - I used to know someone with a cat called Hatfield Peverel.
Littely Green - the pub here serves triangular baps called 'Huffers', which are delish.
Steeple Bumpstead - can be sung to the tune of 'Okalahama'.
Cockle Row - I whizz past this everyday on the C2C line.
River Dikler - Aaah bless.
River Piddle - you couldn't make it up could you?
And what joker came up with this one ? Gobblers Knob *does theatrical Tom and Jerry type gulp* . Don't panic - it's in America and is to do with 'Groundhog Day' apparently.
And as a footnote 'Reasons Not To Be Cheerful'.
Why does every person that buggers off and buys a farm (or moves abroad) feel they have to write a bloody book about it!
A cheese grater will cost you eighty five earth pounds at Daylesford Organic Farm - so go here instead 'The Crock Shop' just up the road in sunny Stow.
If you do visit any of these places - don't forget to follow the country code....
