Sometimes it’s nice just to go somewhere for a potter – without an activity or agenda in mind. When I published the post about Shoreham Airport a few months back – before the horrific disaster as its air show over the summer – the director of the Ditchling Museum of Art and Craft (I know, […]
Praise be! We’ve just found our ideal beach scenario. I said in my post about the wonderful Front Room in Seaford that the beach front here can be a bit lack lustre given it’s immense size, brilliant promenade and cliff walk at one end.
I have to break my silence again for the blog’s Lewes readers. Look, look, look! It opened up again last Friday! The tea hatch in Southover Grange Gardens is ready and waiting to keep you going with (real china) pots of tea and the world’s best carrot cake, while you watch over your bairns slurping Mini Milks as they […]
As I mentioned in my post about the Giles Leisure hot tub/swim spa (have you entered the comp yet?), my son broke a limb in November. We’ve spent a bit of time at the (fabulous) Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton, because it turns out bones heal slower in winter due to children absorbing less […]
I should have written this post a year ago, when we first went to The Front Room in Seaford having been tipped off by a friend. That day last January, we were BLOWN away on the beach, and then BLOWN away by the café’s mega croque monsieur, the like of which I’ve never eaten before […]

Here are her comments: Very unkempt, grass up around your ankles, around the house needs a good sweep to get rid of dirt and snails, […]
I had to share a good little half-dayer cycling down to Cuckmere Haven, which we did a few weeks back. It’s nothing new to most (probably all) of you, but it’s the first time we got right down to the beach, so humour me.
A blazer of a day is on the cards tomorrow, had to quickly share Littlehampton. If you have no plans, I cannot recommend this beach enough. My older son’s school had an inset day yesterday, so we headed to Littlehampton to visit a poorly relative. Here we spent the day having lunch at the East Beach Cafe and […]
