There was an actual Sun-day a couple of weeks back, remember it? I am weakly trying to pun the last day of the week – by that I mean, that it was a Sunday and it was actually sunny. Feeling energised, we went to Bewl Water in Kent, as a way to have a family day and get my husband’s […]
Yesterday my youngest child and I celebrated our birthdays (he has been one of my greatest gifts – literally!) and while he chose which birthday cake we had for our birthday breakfast party, I got to choose what we’d do for the day (he gets a bash later this week and I don’t, so I think […]
Perfumier and trained nose Nancy Meiland is a great friend of mine and, I’m lucky to say, one of my clients. At the tail end of last year she launched her beautiful, high-in-naturals perfume brand, Nancy Meiland Parfums, with a first collection called Paper Leaf. In response to her careful and considered brief, I developed her brand’s tone of […]
Help me readers, do! I want to know what you love to do when it snows in Lewes. I can’t claim to be any kind of expert on EVERYTHING to do with kids in Lewes, and we live in a town of hills – there must be so many great ones out there for a day on […]
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!).

It’s not raining today (yet), so forge […]
My my, what a month of firsts September has been. There was the Duke of Yorks/Duke’s at Komedia weekend cinematic Kids’ Club. Then there was the Half Moon in Plumpton. And this past weekend, there was Landport Bottom. Yes really. Five years. And we’ve never done this simple little leg stretch around one of Lewes’s […]
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 […]
So this week school breaks up and we’re officially IN the summer. YAY! To celebrate, here’s a little round-up of the 10 unmissable things I suggest you do in and near Lewes this summer. All pictures click through to the relevant post. Please bear in mind that some facts may be out of date and are only correct […]
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.
