The early morning Eurostar journey in the fog, a very empty Paris for December time, falafel for lunch 2 days in a row, as frequent as possible cafe stops, pain au chocolat for breakfast every day, sunny afternoons spent sitting in those green chairs in Jardin du Luxembourg, spending hours in La Grande Epicerie and wishing we could take back more goodies than our rucksacks could carry and having no particular plan so just wandering the back streets. That is why I love Paris.
We finally made a visit to Lewes last week after it had been on my 'to visit' list for a few years now. It was such a charming town that we only skimmed the surface of with the 2 hours parking we had. The main reason for the trip was for the farmers market (we came away with lots of cheese, a hand made wooden bird feeder, a couple of pots of snowdrops for the garden and an assortment of cakes). Oh Lewes we loved you and can't wait to return to all the antiques shops, to try out every single coffee shop and stock up on cola bottles from Mary's sweets!
Don't be afraid of the dark was rather creepy but I liked it, Is anybody there? was quite enjoyable, Insidious made me want to go and watch Insidious 2, Romantics Anonymous is still simply wonderful, The House At The End Of The Street was just rubbish and Marnie was an interesting one!
A few weekends back we rented a house in Camber for a few days (the most amazing beach walks) and Rye is only a very short drive away so we visited it as much as we could. It's very beautiful and picturesque with some great shops, beautiful houses and cosy little tea shops. I tend to snap away more for instagram now than my blog which I guess is why my posting on here has decreased but I want to make it more of a regular thing as I love to see other people's updates so I need to get my blog act together.
It was so wonderful to visit camber sands the other weekend and go for a couple of amazing walks. I love to have a good look into the houses that are right on the beach and think about how great it must be to wake up in the morning with those views and to to just run in to the sea for a quick swim before breakfast! It's definitely one of my favourite beaches and our evening walk was just breathtaking!
