Day out to Lichfield

Cato:

My sling still hadn't arrived, so we went to this Lichfield place without it.  So I had to walk.  But Mum carried me for a bit and Dad did too, and we had some nice sit downs, and I met a little girl.  So it was OK.

Lichfield is a town.  With a river and a bridge and another cathedral (yawn) and a muesum place to dictionaries, and a burger place and a cafe that had a sunny garden.  Dad had lots of sausages, and we didn't get ANY cos it was all gluteny, and Mum wouldn't let us! :(

This is the cathedral bit.

This is the side door.  There were workmen doing stuff so we couldn't have a proper sniff.

This is the cathedral b*th.  Human's are obsessed with b*ths.

There was a big exhibshun thing too.  To do with WWI and Tolkein was here, and there were statues and stuff.  Mum read it ALL and we had to wait for ages.

This is the Tolkein bit, where he met up with his friends and it was the idea of the Fellowship

And then Mum took pics of boring stuff like floors and ceilings.  I fell asleep.

But then we went and sat on a bench while Dad did his Looking Around. 

There were some really screamy school children, so I was very glad when we sat with Mum away from them.

It was a lovely snuggle right up until Mum had a thunk and decided to do some pics, so show all the carving stuff, and she has to walk a longlonglonglonglong way away to pic, and it was very stressful.  Tara whined, and I just sat there.  And LOOKED.  You have to keep LOOKING.  cos if you stop LOOKING then Mum might not come back!

Mum said she was sorry, afterwards.  On account of me howling in my sleep that night.  But it was OK cos she DID come back.  I just wish that Mum and Dad would stop doing their dangerous Wandering Off.

These are the pics Mum took.  They aren't worth it, are they?  See how far away she went!!!

This is me on Mum's lap, keeping an eye on those school kids, in case they came and screechified at us!

Then we went and looked at ducks and had a rest and lunch and stuff.  Mum forgot to take pics at lunch, on account of her being nearly as ravenous as me and Tara.

Yes, there is lots and lots and lots of history stuff, isn't there?  But it isn't very sniffy for me and Tara.  I wanted to widdle on that nice old wooden door, but Mum was a spoilsport.  It would have been fab, wouldn't it?  My widdle soaking into that wood.  I could tell it would really hold my manly dominant scent, wouldn't it?  On account of being really old and woody and stuff.  And it would have meant that I owned the whole cathedral, for everandeverandever.  cos that is how it works.

But I managed to widdle on the leg of the bench, instead.  When Mum wasn't looking.  The bench is really old too.  So now I own the bench, don't I?  For ever.
