Weren’t the few days of crisp sunshine between Christmas and New Year such a respite from the sedentary, food-filled few days either side? Charged with energy by the orangey sunshine and sharp focus of everything, my very dear friend (and mother of my sometimes-daughters), and I headed down to Bexhill-on-Sea with our children, leaving our other halves […]
Shoreham Airport – now rebranded Brighton City Airport – is one of my top free recommends. Twenty minutes’ or so drive up the A27, it’s a super easy jaunt, and one that’s great if you want to just blow away the cobwebs for an hour, rather than have a whole day’s activity. This past weekend, when there was […]
As we bid adieu to 2014, I’m sure we all feel contemplative. For me and my family it’s been a pretty good year, especially compared to 2013, which was pretty lousy. When I look back over this year’s Little Lewes posts, it reminds me of the fantastic things we’ve done. I feel so lucky to have my family, our health and our […]
This is so obvious it’s actually daft to write it, but I won’t be posting much over the coming couple of weeks due to being hungover and half-dead from the battle of putting boundaries back in place following the overload of presents and sugar that’s ahead of us.
Let’s all admit what Christmas is really about: drinking. So last week when my sometimes-daughter was over, we made some (VERY SIMPLE) coasters. A cinch to make after school, these Fimo-and-glitter beauties will lift the festive fog from too much grog, and add a little charm to that glass of champagne (you know, the one your hangover’s telling […]
This week’s been a bit of a tough one for the Little Lewes family, so lucky me to have great writers who are also small Lewes business owners willing to pen me guest posts. (And roll up and contact me if you’d like to do one too – I’m all-ears!).
Nice weather this weekend, wasn’t it? Yeah, I know. Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit. I’m boring myself as I write this on Sunday night, so I’m not even going to try to be light-hearted. The rain pisses me off, end of.
Rain aside, I’m seriously digging winter right now. It’s finally starting to get cold! The sparkly days such as we had on Thursday, with a proper nip in the air and that cold, clear light are for spending time out in it, and then retreating from to a warm house and the prospect of candle (and fire!) light […]
Now Bonfire is behind us (did you have an amazing night?) we can start talking Christmas in earnest. So let’s start with what I think is the MOST marvellous idea for a Christmas present, just launched last week at Bags of Books. It’s a YEAR OF BOOKS!
I’m excited – but also gutted. Charleston contacted me earlier this week to tell me they’re doing special children’s tours of the house during half term week. I would love to do this with my son, but we are away or he’s in clubs while I work. Boo. If anyone goes, you must let me know what […]
