Back to that cloud with it's silver lining

I’ve wanted a van for blooming years, many girls crave sports cars with fold down lids, whatever they’re called. Me I’ve always wanted either a Morris Traveller which Paul has expressly forbidden unless I can pay him to look after it for me, or a little white van. I now have a little white van to replace my poor written off Polo, thank goodness I’ve been saving pennies up. Yes Andrew I think it might be called Professor Yaffle (for no particular reason) though you have all been good at naming pots in the past with commenters being responsible for Harlequin and Humbug ones, (both the some person I think) so if anything more apt springs to mind let me know.
I can go to Potfest with all the pots I haven’t been able to make in the back of my new van. Paul is so very jealous that wherever he goes the world turns a little green around him. Chuckle chuckle.

    9999999999999999+/888888888888899999This is what our little cat, Nigella Stopit, left as a comment all by herself using her back paws which is quite an achievement I think! I've honestly no idea what it means, but she seemed very excited by the sight of your new van, and so are the rest of us! Wonderful.Enjoyed your surreal encounter with HRH.

    When I met Toff at Winchcombe he was driving an old Morris Minor post office van…I still want one! Yours looks spiffy!

    Cool new ride! Wow! I agree with Ron, check ebay for magnetic signs. I've bought several there and they are great.

    White Van Lady – back on the road again with a cool set of wheels!!

  10. Lovely! It's not magnetic signs you need…it needs some SLIP TRAILING on it. Something like Hannah McAndrew by Royal Appointment might look good.

    You should get yourself a job at the Paris Motor show.Draping your body over the bonnet like that.

  15. Nice van! I used to have a Morris Traveller, and they're more trouble than they're worth, to be honest. They're not powerful enough for modern motorways, the Ash woodwork on the back is prone to rotting and falling apart, unless you get an exceptionally good model the underneath will be rusted through, and they have some weakness in the steering which can cause the front wheels to collapse and rather comically splay out sideways! The one I had also used to cut out at inconvenient moments, and the starter motor was a bit dodgy so I often had to crank-start it. On the plus side, the gearbox was so old and smooth that I could change through all the gears without using the clutch.
