I returned last night in the middle of a lovely dinner party cooked by one of my flatmates, and completely failed to say the above to another of them. Sorry Shan.
I have not taken a number 12 bus from Kingskerswell to Newton Abbot for, ooh, must be going on a decade. They have not improved in the interim, though for some unfathomable reason they apparently now have WiFi.
Most of my time in Devon was much more fun than this, I should add.
