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...

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...

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...

CircusSeen Boot Camp

My girls love the circus. Being an Ariel performer is one of the many things B plans to be as an adult, despite the fact that she’s very much not a performer. K loves the greasepaint and glitter and performing is her natural habitat. So when I found a holiday workshop learning circus skills, in a real theatre, on the actual pier, they both begged to go. This is unlike my kids. I was keen because I suspected they would love it but also I thought it would be creative and physical and a great opportunity to meet other children...
