With much excitement last weekend, I got to catch up with Charlotte, possibly my oldest friend – who moved over to America when we were about eight. It had been a few years since we’d seen each other, and this was the first time that she’d met Stuart! She was staying in Hastings, so we took the opportunity for a good catch up and a traditional Hastings trip to the beach!

With a paddle in the sea, plenty of ice cream, pirate golf, playing on the penny machines and, of course, some selfies – we had a lot of fun! The pirate golf, especially, was great, with pirate sound effects, cannon blasts and water shooting at you every now and then, it certainly kept us on our toes! (If you’re wondering, Char the sports journalist won, I came second, and Stuart gracefully lost). Maybe this is the start of an exciting new form of sport reporting. What will be next? Ninja Frisbee? Mermaid darts?

After that had all worn us out, we returned to my mum and dad’s for a roast dinner, some card games and giant Jenga in the garden (while I, actually, had a short nap…). I think Stuart lost the Jenga, too.

At the weekend we had some visitors come to stay from far, far away… all the way from Northern Ireland! Sandra and Peter (Stuart’s mum and dad for those out of the loop) came to stay for the weekend and we attempted to give them the best of Sussex life!

There was a classic Saltworkz breakfast, there were ice cream milkshakes, there were walks, there were fluffy ducklings, there were unicorns, there was church, and there was a delicious meal at The Limes in Lindfield, one of our favourite restaurants (well, from the two times we have been there).

Had to share a photo of the fab PJs they gave me! (I do love unicorns…)
All in all we crammed an awful lot in to two days!
