Well we’ve reached the reign of Henry II and we already know how keen he was to repeal the laws. But Henry is also remembered for shouting “Will no one rid me of this priest?” after Thomas a Bucket had upset him by proclaiming that clergymen could not be punished at all. Some knights overheard this and murdered Thomas in his ORGAN in Canterbury Cathedral. This was very painful indeed.
Thomas was made a saint …..
and the knights came to be called Canterbury Pilgrims and told very tall tales, which no one believed anyway.
Now as promised, here is the best of the shots taken at my recent photo shoot.
Sorry! I couldn’t resist it! But I promise on Monday I will post one without the paper bag, it’s not as pretty you know. I got that bag in Paris! Have a great weekend.
