A visit to Lichfield

This weekend me and Mr C travelled to Lichfield to stay the weekend with our daughter and her boyfriend.

She wont be coming home to us for Christmas as her boyfriends Mum and partner will be staying with her over the holidays. (only fair, but I will really miss her).
We arrived Friday evening after a very slow drive due to road works. She made us a wonderful supper of stuffed mushrooms to start (Mushrooms stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in prosciutto , then baked in the oven - yummy) for main course we had Hunter's Chicken served with Mashed Potato, Green Beans and Carrots (again fantastic) our pud was Apple Strudel served with cream. I was really impressed, I taught her well! I forgot to mention the bottle of wine which was also very well received.

On Saturday after breakfast, we walked into Lichfield and took in some of the sites. Its a lovely place with some really picturesque buildings., like the Cathedral with three spires.
We stopped off at a tea shop and had pots of tea and toasted tea cakes - wonderful!

Saturday evening I booked a restaurant where we had traditional Christmas fare to make up for the fact we will be apart on Christmas Day. The food wasn't too great but the company made up for it.
Sunday morning came around all too soon, so we had to pack up our bags and say our goodbye's, wiping away the tears we headed off home.
