A Rug With The Shipping Forecast On It

shipping forecast rug
If you live or are ever in the UK and you have the radio on you will no doubt hear the Shipping Forecast. As we are surrounded by sea and only small it's a pretty important forecast. I know each and every name they call out but have no idea where most of them are. I found this rug yesterday at Roam , isn't it just so lovely?

A character in "As Time Goes By" relates the weather conditions in the Channel frequently. Very amusing.

I do like the whimsy of this rug.
