Mum took us to Thrigby Hall Wildlife Park, which specializes in large felines. Hugh was very taken with them and exclaimed “cat! cat!”, pronouncing the t very carefully. You wouldn’t want to offend this particular cat.
I went first to show him it was safe and he was really amazingly good. He was then rather less good when we took him to Toys’R’Us and then straight out again to buy shoes. We should have known better. The award for Most Heroic Shoe-Fitter goes to the woman who chased Hugh round and round Brantano Footwear as he tried not one but four different pairs, eventually settling on size 7.5G with flashing heel feature.
The excuse for our trip was that my parents were giving a party. Hugh had spent much of his time in Norfolk staging dramatic protests over meal times and refusing to eat, but he miraculously regained his appetite in the vicinity of chocolate cake.
The cake picture and the next two were taken by one of my mum’s colleagues.
