My travels continue once again and we are off to Middlesbrough this morning. ‘Never stay in one place long enough to get caught’, that’s my motto! My mistress has a slight variation of that which is ‘never stay anywhere long enough for them to find out what you’re really like’, but I guess it amounts to much the same thing. My mistress is planning a stop on route so I had a quick look at the map and said I wouldn’t mind going to the Peak District or the Yorkshire Moors. She rather spoilt it when she said it was more likely to be the car park of a motorway service station as she has to make a work telephone call. I was disappointed to say the least but said “I suppose it will only be for five minutes then.” Sadly it seems I was delusional, it is likely to be an hour. Now I don’t know about you but there are many places I find more interesting to spend an hour of my short life than in a motorway service station car park. I think she might have finally lost the plot. I have asked if I promise to put the headphones on and stay quiet, whether I can watch a dvd in the back of the car. Although she said it might be possible, she drew the line when I asked for ‘101 Dalmatians’, mainly because she knows there is no way I will stay quiet. I am likely to jump up every so often and say “Look at that one.” “That one’s cute.” “Can I have a puppy?” You know how it goes with us kids when we get excited. She has said I can quietly read a book instead but I think on balance I will go with the nap idea.
