Before I begin this post, I MUST apologise for my pictures. We went at 5pm and it was dark dark – and I only take pictures for this blog on my iPhone as I cannot be fiddling around with a digital SLR with two children in tow (I know you get me). The pictures are […]
A couple of weekends back some girlfriends and I took our kids to Canfields, a Feather Down Farm in Horsham, West Sussex, for a weekend of ‘glamping’ (I dread this word, as I mentioned in my post 18 months or so ago about Mount Harry near Lewes, so as then I would rather here describe it as […]
Have you seen the new AW range from Magnificent Stanley, the Lewes-based creator of bespoke Liberty-lettered tees? Seasonal rich, deep maroon and soft, soft grey are added to the existing palette of navy, white and bright poppy red (amazing for Christmas), with new Liberty fabrics for the letters and numbers that tone in.
As the new term started, I received an email from a lady called Claire Fowler, who in April started up new drop-in art and craft sessions for pre-school kids in Lewes called The Arty Space.

You knew I wouldn’t be able to shut up.

In celebration of Lewes-based Magnificent Stanley being my first ever advertiser at Little Lewes (!), I thought I’d put together a quick post about the Christmas tees that founder Becky is doing this year.
This won’t be new to many of you, but it’s one of two things we did last weekend for the first time since moving to Lewes nearly five years ago. The other, I’ll be blogging about later this week or next.
A great day happened to us by total accident a couple of weeks ago and quite by accident it ended up being the moment my boys reviewed Project Jelly’s bright, practical jelly shoes. I had contacted the shoes’ creator Natalie Collier about taking two pairs on holiday – one donated, one paid for. A couple of years ago she […]
