I'm just back from a wonderful weekend in West Wittering with friends and family. My aunt rented a lovely big beach house for the 70th birthday celebrations of my uncle. It was a really relaxed couple of days with plenty of eating, drinking, more eating....you get the picture. I'd never visited this area of West Sussex before and enjoyed exploring the village and beach front, of course it helped that the weather was glorious on Saturday and as you'd expect, I took a few snaps.
Our lovely spacious accommodation... my room came with boutique hotel feel en-suite
After a late breakfast on Saturday we strolled for several kilometres along the beach
where the beachfront properties were of much interest
some ramshackle, others palatial and lots inbetween.
There were plenty of hardy individuals surfing and kite surfing
and my bonkers aunt even went in for a paddle!
On our way back to the house we spotted these dear little Jelly shoes hanging from a branch...
...and a mermaid's head shoved in between fence posts
I wonder what happened to her body?
After a hearty lunch we went for a wander around the village, Hawkeye here, had spied a couple of chazzas on arrival the day before and was keen to have a recce.
Inside this one, there were lots of bargains to be had but I restrained myself and purchased only a small French mustard pot for the grand sum of 50p and was not at all tempted by this novel vase!
That evening after the arrival of my brother and SIL, we sat down and ate more food than was good for us and consumed quite a lot of fizz. At the end of the meal my aunt produced this wonderful birthday cake (all made in secret) for my uncle. A sort of This Is Your Life, in cake form.
Now back home there has been another visit to the vet and I'm pleased to report Prue is doing a little better. Thank you all so much for your Get Well wishes on my last post, you are a kind lot and your positive vibes seem to be working. Let's hope it continues before I'm made bankrupt! I've had to employ crafty methods of getting medication down her as trying to get a tablet down her in the usual way resulted in a struggle and the pill being spat out across the kitchen floor....too much stress for both cat and owner!
Crochet is helping me to chill at the moment, here's how my latest project is looking.
It shouldn't be too much longer now till it all comes together....I know you'll be waiting with bated breath.
I'm off now to catch up with Indian Summers...anyone else watching?
