I don't know where the counties are in this country, and although T says they don't really matter, well, they do to me. Because I don't know where they are! When people say they are from Dorset or Norfolk, I don't know where those places are.
So I had the idea to embroider a map of the counties to maybe learn it that way... I'm not sure all the counties are going to 'stick', but atleast some of them will. I hope.
