A greedy post about a meal in the sun last week at Coast

I got a bit of flack for my last post where I said I hadn’t yet found any ‘stand out’ food in Worthing yet.  I am a little spoilt, as we just moved from Brighton where there are loads of excellent eateries.  I appreciate that local residents have their favorites built over time and with trust.  I am very grateful for the recommendations (a restaurant can have off days of course, but true loyalty is built by people coming back again and again).  It will take me a little while to work through them. I work and have kids and...

Five good things about Worthing

People watching at Coast Cafe/cafe des Artistes, February 2016 Girls in the lookout at cafe des Artistes/Coast cafe, Worthing Coffee served with a smidge of chocolate at Coast cafe in Worthing The beach Its quiet.  There’s some sunbathing in the summer.  Families beach-combing.  A bit of dog walking and sea swimming.  But no teeming hoards. The water is shallow with no quick drop-off (like in Brighton), which means its good for swimming and water-sports.  We swim on the Beaches the East side of Splashpoint Pool (at the bottom of Ham road).  In the summer the water is lovely and...

A fresh start

So where are all those posts about Worthing then?  They’re all here (taps noggin), but I’ve been a bit busy IRL lately and didn’t want to rant/cry/bore everyone.  It’s time for a fresh start I think. We’re in (its lovely), and we love Worthing, but it was a little bit bumpy along the way (school stuff and change – I’ve bored myself with it all now, and can’t think about it any more). BUT, now that Springtime is on its way, and a fresh start it upon us once more, the old brain is tickering away, and I need a...

The Wool Bar

My dreams of catching the last few weeks of summer as a Worthing resident are dashed, but that hasn’t stopped me from getting over there this weekend. I’ve long fancied learning to crochet, but having taught myself to knit more than once (and forgotten again), I knew it wouldn’t come naturally.  And anyway as a bit of a natterer, I much prefer a group session where I can ask questions. Me and the family had popped into The Wool Bar one day a few weeks ago on our stroll back to East Beach after a slap-up meal at Giuseppes for...

Moving house blues

Oh my goodness, goodness, goodness!  How do people do this?  Seven weeks today since our mortgage application.  SEVEN.  WEEKS.  And the bank has still not done the valuation. Apparently the rest all checks out and is moving along as it should be, but why so long to look at a house?  It took us less time than that to find it. Of course our vendor is wondering if we have cold feet.  And we are worried they will pull the sale (although everyone is saying they are frustrated but positive).  All we can do is keep our fingers firmly...
