Hello from Cornwall

Post by Leytonexile on Sat Oct 01, 2016 1:57 pm

Hello.

I'm currently living in St. Blazey, Cornwall but you may guess from my handle that I'm not a native of these parts. ( Married a Cornish maid!)

I'm a new owner of an Autosleeper Windsor, or will be when I pick it up. This will be my 5th motorhome. My current van is an Ace Milano which I've had for 12 years but it's going to that great garage in the sky, with 284,000 miles on the clock. Yes, you read that correctly!

By profession, I'm a locum pharmacist which accounts for the high mileage, but I also have a PVC or bus driver's licence and mainly drive vintage buses. Oldest one so far dates back to March 31st, 1939. 

I've taken my motorhomes to Pompeii, and France, and up to north Wales and Scotland. Not sure when I'll end up with the new van, but I have to be on The Isle of Wight the day after I pick it up.  Could be fun!

Can she bake an indecent pasty? biggrin
Not a fan of pasties myself, but clotted cream will be my downfall.

Hi , Leyton, she just doesn't bake even"indecently"  I think the "cooking gene" left her family generations ago!!! Yes yes  big thumbs up from me on the Clotted front , although I prefer Devon clotted cream to Cornish ! Probably get sent back to Glos for saying that! Were off down to St Ives tomorrow for a few days [the sticky toffee pudding with clotted cream in the "Seafood café" is well recommended] so ill probably be glad she cant cook when we get back as I will need to lose a few pounds!!  Kind regards       Paul

Hi Paul,

Enjoy St. Ives tomorrow. I'm off in the other direction. St. Budeaux.
