We often marvel at how gorgeous Cornwall's landscapes are but we reckon part of its charm is how unique it is.

And you have got to love the Duchy for its flaws too!

Here are 15 things you will understand if you live in Cornwall - in amusing GIFs!

1. When you're commuting to work and there are sheep or cows or both in the road...again!

It just feels endless.

In Cornwall, sheep and cows literally get everywhere...

2. When you make a new friend and you realise, they pronounce scone wrong!

3. The face you make when a proper Cornish pasty passes your chops...

via GIPHY

4. And the face you make when a friend up country suggests...

...this is a pasty!

via GIPHY

5. When the 'emmets' descend for the season and gridlock the A30...

We love them really!

via GIPHY

6. And when you spot them wearing socks with sandals, or wetsuits, they picked up from the supermarket...

via GIPHY

7. Or strut around wearing a lifeguard hoodie...

Oh dear!

via GIPHY

8. When you are off to explore other areas in Cornwall and the directions tell you to ignore your satnav...

Yep, cool!

via GIPHY

9. And you are on your way but get stuck behind a tractor or two, or three...

It is so not cool when you are late to work.

via GIPHY

10. Your feelings on how getting a decent phone signal is often a struggle...

via GIPHY

11. When a seagull tries to swipe your fish and chips...

We live here too, we know your game, we are ready for you!

via GIPHY

12. When you have to venture out of the Duchy...

via GIPHY

13. When you explain to your out of county friends that flip-flops are acceptable footwear to any event...

via GIPHY

14. And you go a step further to explain you are still wearing shorts in November...

Not because it is sunny, but just because you can.

via GIPHY

15. And when you meet new people and just drop the 'I live in Cornwall' bomb...

Jealous much?
