Conversations with a four year old - the one about Cornwall

There has been lots of talk of holidays in our house recently as we look forward to our Summer Holiday next month. I was asking daughter what she remembered of our holidays so far. She's a pretty good memory and remembers Wales last year, Northumberland two years ago and even the Lake District just before her second birthday. I asked if she remembered Cornwall (she was 15 months old).

"Yes, I remember Cornwall" she said

"What did we do there?" I asked, intrigued as to whether she could remember anything.

"We took Tigger" she said

(Well, yes, Tigger has been on all our holidays)

"What else did we do?" I asked

"Tigger sat on the wall" she said

"What wall?" I asked

"The CORN WALL!" she said, getting exasperated.

"But Cornwall is a county, not a wall" I said

"IT IS, WE TOOK HIS PICTURE ON IT!" She was adamant.

Suddenly I remembered this:

Tigger sitting on Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland two years ago.
