I’ve had a bit of a blogging lull (I appreciate that this is not the first time I have written this post, or one similar). The last school year has been a whirlwind – I have been busier than I could have ever hoped for doing stuff I love for local businesses, research projects and charities, but now it is time for a little reflection around my work, how much I do (I’ve been flat out), and how I can work smarter and include all the other bits that are important to me and mine into our lives. Part of that...

Outdoors Project, Buckingham Park, Shoreham

I’ve been looking at The Outdoors Project for a while – it’s after my own heart.  But until now, my shy ones have resisted my booking them in.  However, with a whole mob booked from their school, plus sleepover friends going along, they were thrilled to be invited to review it. My girls like nothing better than a camp out and can often be found in our garden making potions or mud pies, building dens or designing fairy houses, so The Outdoors Project is right up our street. I needn’t have worried – even without school chums there, my girls would have been...

On the way home from school today my big daughter suggested we go out for dinner to celebrate hump day (she said hill day, but you know – Wednesday). We’ve been meaning to try Fiordilatte for a while now but keep not getting around to it.  It’s about 20 minutes walk from home (along the seafront), and the sun was shining and what’s more glorious on a coming-up-to-the-end-of-half-term Wednesday night than a stroll in the sunshine on Worthing beach? Also, the alternative was quiche which I hadn’t actually got around to making yet (I was too busy trying this...

The Dome Cinema in Worthing

The Dome is one of our new favorite places in Worthing.  For starters, it’s a beauty, but also it often does Friday 6pm shows for kids, which feel like a ‘proper’ night out.  And has a lovely bar where you can buy a coffee. It also has lots of character and period flourishes, so makes a trip to the Cinema a beautiful treat. I’ve been telling anyone who’ll listen about it so wanted to share some pics.  I also wrote about the attached Dome Vintage Tearoom (where we read a 1974 copy of The Beano on friday) in my last post Beautiful...

Glorious, Sunshiny Worthing

I keep having to give myself a pinch.  Last summer it felt like the move to Worthing might never happen and I spent time and energy managing my own expectations in case it never did. We were gutted when we realised we wouldn’t get over here until deep into Autumn.  But it’s been wonderful to see our first Spring in our pretty, sunshiny garden.  To realise why the previous owners of our house had a curtain rail in the kitchen, and to start ‘doing’ the beach after school. We discovered The Dome Vintage Tearoom this week (and thoroughly recommend their...
